Using a CD4060 IC I’ve built a crystal oscillator circuit similar to the one in the image. I’m trying to use my klein mm400 multimeter to measure the oscillation frequency so I can get a rough estimate.
Where should I be placing the probes in that net? I’ve tried placing both across a resistor connected to the output pin, but the meter always reads 60Hz.
Perhaps the messy wires are disturbing the probes? This circuit looks horrendous because I don’t have any resistors larger than 1M.. I should really cut these cables too to shorten them.
Update: My circuit is now corrected and oscillates reliably but the multimeter still has the same issue. Read my answer down below to see my new circuit.
