Ceramic resonator VFOs

David W Searle ZL3DWS sent me a very useful link about the use of ceramic resonators in VFOs. These can be pulled more than crystals but the pulled stability is still better than a VFO. I am trying to use these in a mixer-VFO for my 10m DSB rig. See the webpage by Jack Ponton GM0RWU at the address below. I think taking the output differentially from a tuned circuit across the output pins of the NE602 would be better with a simple link winding down to 50 ohms. http://eweb.chemeng.ed.ac.uk/jack/radio/projects/resnote3.html .
