Hi Hans,

Does the RME-69 work well on international shortwave broadcasts with 
the crystal
filter in the "off" position?  If not, there is something else wrong.

As noted by others, the crystal has nothing to do with the local 
oscillator.  It is simply a means to reduce selectivity, typically 
needed for reception of CW (code).

I, too,like the RME-69 because of its role in the Dutch verzet as 
advertised by RME in a advertisement reprinting a letter received 
from the resistance after WWII.

Groetjes en 73,
