Variable audio oscillator 20hz to 20Khz

To obtain a 1000:1 Sweep Range, the voltage across external resistors Ra and Rb must decrease to nearly zero. This requires that the highest voltage on control pin 8 exceed the voltage at the top of Ra and Rb by a few hundred millivolts. The circuit achieves this by using a diode to lower the effective supply voltage on the 8038

The large resistor on pin 5 helps reduce duty cycle variations with sweep.
