Default Re: The James Knights Co. oscillator, 4.0 kc

THe resonator could be any of a number of things.... A flexural-shear mode quartz bar, probably in an evacuated glass holder, maybe a quartz tuning fork in vacuo. or a metal tuning fork also in vacuo. Any of these would benefit from an ovened environment.

Can't afford the volcanic island yet, but the plans for my monorail and the goons' uniforms are done
