Hi Lee -I think that's good advice; but old. The internal inverters weren't all that fast back then. I suspect they needed the capacitor in the Rx position because the inverter was barely fast enough, and needed help.
But today's 74HC is an order of magnitude faster. A 74HC04 has a propagation delay of only 7-8 nsec, or about 75 MHz. 11 MHz is "slow" in comparison. :-)
I know this is a "just try it and see approach" which would make my oldAll you need is for *one* to work. And, you don't care if the oscillator is pulled somewhat off frequency by a less-than-ideal design. So go for it! :-)
