Mike W3IRZ (sk) of the North Georgia
QRP club put in series with the crystal socket
either a #47 bulb or a low ohm resistor - I thought
he said at one time a 10K but it might have been
a 10 also.  He made some nice glowbug transmitters
that I think are still viewable on the north Georgia site
at:  NoGaQRP at mailman.qth.net
Anyway, I used a 10K (plan to try a lesser resistance
soon)  on my Knight T60 with some of the little HC49
crystals (repackaged inside the FT241 case and have
had no problems. The FT241 offers a bit more space
inside than the 243 but the pin spacing is the same.
