Rock-Mite 30m, 10106 or 10116kHz?

Which crystals do I choose?
The frequency should end up about 1.2kHz below the crystal frequency..

Hi Gil,
I think I would choose 10.116MHz.  While 10.116 and 10.106 are both listed as QRP calling frequencies, I think 10.116 seems to have more activity than 10.106MHz.  Most all the QRP contacts I've made on 30 meters have been around 10.116MHz.  Another good frequency would be 10.120MHz.  That's the SKCC (Straight Key Century Club) calling frequency on 30m.  I've worked a lot of straight key cw and QRP there also.

Thanks for the QSO on 5-19 and for the info about this web site also.  Will be looking for you on 30m again
73,

Thanks. It was nice to chat a bit on 30m. Too often I get a 599-73 and goodbye :(
I'll leave my 30m end-fed up for a little longer, just to experiment...

Lucky me I picked 10116! The working frequency turned out to be a bit lower at 10114.8kHz.
