Hi Glen,

I don't know how important it is to have the same 555 as I have... NE555N. I bought them at radio shack. I learned from Peter that there are low power versions. I didn't know the existed.

I may be using more power than I need and might get better gains with a lower power 555. OR, there might be something to using the higher power one that enhances what is going on. I could try a lower power one and see what happens.
