I am building the circuit described in this lab: wiki.analog.com/university/courses/electronics/comms-lab-clapp-osc
Can someone please tell me the rule of thumb for selecting the choke inductor, L2?
My oscillator is designed to oscillate at 16 MHz.
Values I'm using are:
C1 = C2 = 1nF
C3 = 10 pF
L1 = 10 uH
If I choose the wrong value of L2, the circuit wil not oscillate. For example, L2 = 10 mH does NOT work.
