Abstract

Previous methods of mounting crystals in portable radios and pagers permit shock amplification and second- ary impact on the crystal when a radio is dropped, resulting in catastrophic failures. The proposed mounting method rigidly supports the crystal package, preventing the shock level from being amplified.
