Hi All,
   I am running an SX-48 using a 50MHz resonator ( from Parallax ). The code seems to run ok as long as I don't accidentally touch the SX-Key programming connector. If I do, in most cases the code will crash or act weird. I have tried the HS1 and HS2 settings. I seem to touch this connector a lot when I hit the reset button :).

 Is it normal for the oscillator to be this sensitive? Is there any way to make it more resistant to this type of thing? One thing I haven't tried is the HS3 setting. I might try that  tonight.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hey, the resonator is operating at 50 MHz. Your finger adds enough load (resistance but also capacity) for such a high frequency to stop oscillation when you touch the SX-Key connector. When you remove the finger again, oscillation may or may not start again - at least, this is what I experienced myself. Increasing the SX-internal oscillator driver gain (HS3) may help but it is not for sure. So you better follow the doctor's advise :-) .

I guess I will have to be coordinated in the future  :tongue:

Thanks for letting me know it is normal.
