There is a misprint in the manual!  To get 6 meters
using an 8 MHz crystal you start at 8.3333 MHz and go
to 9.0 MHz.  An 8.4 MHz crystal is going to come out
on the AM "calling frequency" of 50.400 MHz.  50.0 MHz
divided by 6 comes out to 8.3333 MHz and 54.0 MHz
divided by 6 comes out to 9.000 MHz.  8.5 MHz times 6
comes out to 51.0 MHz. 12.5 MHz times 4 comes out to
50.0 MHz.

The manual specifies 8.5-9 or 12.5-13.5 xtals for 6m
