    You and me both brother. :D

    I am trying to do exactly the same thing as you. I did in fact connect it to an oscilloscope today and I got oscillations. :D But alas they lasted milliseconds.

    It will be very helpful to you if you read my thread as it has a lot of information on what you are trying to do as well as my own progress.
