This would not be quite the correct frequency range but the concept of a
heterodyne oscillator is right out EMRFD.
I tried a similar idea for an oscillator for a 10M DSB transceiver. We have
a local 10M sideband net @ 28.4MHz. The crystals are junk box crystals @
10MHz and approx. 18.4MHz.
I am also going to use KK7B's direct conversion receiver ideas.
This is a heterodyne oscillator project I tried. It worked but I never have
used it in an actual rig.
A lot of the fun of home brewing is building analog oscillators.
