Free running Tank circuit, excited every 'N' cycles


A positive "Reset Pulse" turns J1 on (closes), energizing the LC for one half cycle.
Without Pulse J1 is open, the LC circuit runs free, dampened output wave (ringing).
The Buffer keeps the load light on LC tank circuit.
'N' is selected as high as allows the circuit to run, placing less influence on LC tank.

I would love to add a quartz crystal to this circuit, because of it's high 'Q', if circuitlab only had one.
