How to trasform a 40 m Pixie into a 20 m Pixie

These are the changes identified on the scheme; they have not yet been tested, but welcome if anyone wants to do so.

First of all the general schema of the "Frog" Pixie with the changes:

The changes on the output filter:

The change of the crystal, near the mixer-oscillator NE602:

Changes in the input resonating filter: the ceramic resonator at 7023 khz is replaced by an inductor that resonates with the capacitor (22 pF) at 14060.
All must to be tested.

  1. Since you are replacing a narrow crystal filter as your bandpass filter with just a series tuned circuit you may experience problems if there are any high powered transmitters nearby. Maybe you could think about using a filter comprising of two coupled parallel tuned circuits or something similar to boost selectivity.
