5w20 build as 5w30?


Pete McQuain
 

Hi,
I’ve decided that I want to build my 5w20 as a 5w30 instead. I was comparing the parts lists and schematics and it looks like the differences are in the “Bag #5” group of parts - toroids, caps and filter crystals. 

I know I can get the toroids from Diz, and I have the caps, but I didn’t see the 12mhz xtals available on the site. 

Any suggestions on an easy way to source the toroids and crystals required?

Diz - do you offer just the band-specific parts bags for sale?

Pete...I have one (and only one) set of extra xtals for 5W30

Pete, it's a good choice to go with Diz's "set" of crystals, as he pre-matches them for you for the crystal filter.

Crystals from other sources, you would need to match crystals yourself for best performance.
