Pixie kit - I give up

I have checked everything 10 times.
I have removed key components.


The 40m Pixie kit oscillator does not start, unless the varicap diode is shorted meaning there is neither frequency agility nor TX/RX shift.

I give up. In the time spent debugging I would have built the same circuit dead-bug style. Maybe I will. One day.
