QRSS receiver up and running

Well its taken a good long while, but I've finished off the QRSS receiver and have a grabber running. I'm not picking up any obvious signals. I have not checked the clipboard, but thought I'd tinker around anyway.

Seems to be something weird going on with the oscillator, I can't get the frequency counter to pick anything up under 66MHz, which is way out of the ball park. I noticed that when I bump the crystal or hold my finger on the crystal the capture changes significantly.

So may need to move the oscillator off the main board and box it up and put a high impedance buffer on it to be able to check the frequency with the external counter.
