A complete design procedure for grounded cathode Pierce-type triode oscillators in the 0.8- to 20-mc frequency range is presented. The char acteristics of quartz crystal units and triodes applicable in this frequency range, and the in herent interaction between their characteristics are included. Methods of obtaining compatible operation between the crystal unit and the vacuum tube are presented, as are details of tious factors influencing oscillator frequency stabil ity and miscorrelation. From this background in formation the optimum tube characteristics and circuit component values are derived and assembled into a design procedure. Author
