JFET Pierce oscillator will test any crystal from 50 kHz through 25-MHz upper frequency limit of fundamental-mode crystals without tuning, and drive counter for measuring crystal frequency, Will test overtone VHF crystals on their fundamental frequency. T1 is small output transformer from tube-type radio, having about 33: 1 turns ratio, or 6. 3-V f
