Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Radars
Dutch term or phrase: x-tal
We are talking radar transmitters here, and in particular RF generation. The only two sentences where I have found this are the following:

"Ongeacht welk type RF-oscillator werkzaam is wordt er een basisfrequentie opgewekt van ongeveer 81Mc (x-tal)."
and
"Bij het in onze configuratie gebruikte type RF-oscillator geschiedt de selectie van het kanaal (x-tal) d.m.v. een schakelaar".

No further references exist in the text. Could this refer to an oscillator crystal or is it "x times"? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

crystal
Explanation:
From the context, I'd say crystal (commonly shown as XTAL on schematic diagrams or written as xtal as a sort of shorthand).
