The sad lesson of the lives of the author and the character he created is that the need to dream dies when overindulgence overtakes a person and he receives everything he desires. Life was not perfect for Fitzgerald after he had achieved his dream of a newly successful career and marriage. “For a moment the delights of anticipation remained a part of the achievement. At the same time Fitzgerald knew that fulfillment destroys the dream” (Mizener 129). This sentiment is expressed in The Great Gatsby when the title character’s self-centeredness makes him cry out incredulously, “Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!” (Fitzgerald 116). Gatsby wants the past that he and Daisy shared, but the new Daisy cannot give it to him. “A long-cherished, sentimental illusion can be shattered by a mere brush with reality…Gatsby’s enormous dream is bound to suffer from any contact with reality…[Gatsby] has ‘paid a high price for living too long with a single dream’…He wanted to repeat the past, and the present fails him. He wanted to make up for his loss, and a greater loss awaits him” (Perosa 64-68). Despite his perceived self-absorption, Gatsby is willing to take the blame for the car accident in which Daisy kills her husband’s mistress, Myrtle Wilson; ultimately, this most selfless act leads to Gatsby’s death at the hands of Myrtle’s enraged husband, George Wilson.
For SSB operation the 36 MHz signal is mixed down to 6 MHz. This 6 MHz signal is again feet into a phase comparator where it is compared to the signal of the 6 MHz VFO. This way the stable 6 MHz VFO is able to control the 36 MHz VFO which again is able to control the 96 MHz VFO. A well designed 6 MHz VFO is by far good enough for SSB, so the 96 MHz VFO in this system is good enough too. (For experts: since the time constant of the PLL loop filter is quite large, the phase noise of the 96 MHz VFO is significantly reduced also.) The frequency range of the 6 MHz oscillator is only 500 kHz, but this is completely sufficient since all SSB/CW operation is located in the 144 – MHz area.
