Telephone (Bug) Transmitter FM  -  Receive telephone conversations on any FM radio with this neat little device.   __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Telephone FM Transmitter -  This FM transmitter attaches in series to one of your phone lines.  When there is a signal on the line (that is, when you pick up the handset) the circuit will transmit the conversation.  in particular it will radiate from the phone line itself.  it is a passive device, there is __ Designed by Electronics DIY

Telephone Line Filter / Protector -  To build a circuit that will help protect your equipment from lightning strikes on the phone line.  This circuit was actually designed to reduce or eliminate a very local broadcast AM radio stations signal from bombarding my parents telephone line, however it also turned out to be a really good lightning protector.  __ Designed by Kevin Custer  W3KKC

The Elektor DSP radio -  Many radio amateurs in practice use two receivers, one portable and the other a fixed receiver with a PC control facility.  The Elektor DSP radio can operate in either capacity.  must register to view circuit __ Designed by Published in Elecktor July/Aug, 2010

THE FOX 750-750 milliwatt transmitter -  This three transistor 144 MHz transmitter uses a 48 MHz scanner crystal as an oscillator / tripler.  A second transistor boosts the signal to 40 milliwatts, a third amplifies the power output to 750 milliwatts. __ Designed by Joe Leggio WB2HOL

THE FOX-250mw transmitter with timer -  The timer consists of a Radio Shack travel alarm.  I disconnected the pizeo-ceramic beeper and used the signal to set a flip-flop built from a CMOS 4011.  The output of the flip flop is connected to a switching transistor which supplies voltage to the CW iD.  I used an R/C combination on the flip/flop so it would be reset when first powered up.  A push button is provided so the flip/flop can be set manually (turning on the transmitter)  __ Designed by Joe Leggio WB2HOL

THE FOX-40 milliwatt transmitter -  This two transistor 144 MHz transmitter uses a 48 MHz scanner crystal as an oscillator / tripler.  A second transistor boosts the power output to 40 milliwatts.  A 7-element filter is used to minimize output on the third harmonic.

The Simplest FM Transmitter -  This is the most simple and cheap FM transmitter you can ever find.  it's powered by CR2025 3V battery and current consumption is very low.  The total size of this FM transmitter is less than that of a matchbox.  The circuit has a central RF oscillator NPN transistor BF494.  A coil takes care of the output frequency.  The coil consists of 36SWG wire 2.5 turns in 5mm diameter ferrite rod.  Keep the circuit as small as possible.  By using a standard TV antenna, the range of this transmitter can go up to 1KM radius, using small 15-20cm wire, it can work up to around 50M range.  This circuit is most suitable for miniature FM transmitter for use in computer, mobile etc to send music to home theater system without wires, and in homemade wireless walky-talkies.__ 

The Simplest FM Transmitter Ever Made -  This is the most simple and cheap FM transmitter you can ever find.  This circuit is really cool.  This runs at very low voltage, by a CR2025 3V battery, current consumption is also low. And the total size of this FM transmitter (including battery, excluding antenna) is less than that of a matchbox.  The circuit has a central RF oscillator NPN transistor BF494 (substitute: BF199).  A coil takes care of the output frequency.  it consists of 36SWG wire 2.5 turns only in 5mm diameter ferrite rod.  Keep the circuit as small as possible.__ 

The TX-300 FM Transmitter Project -  This power meter will let you test both the output power of Q2 (VHF amp) and Q1 (oscillator).  Circuit is now on the separate board so you can fit the main circuit of the smaller PC board.  __ 

The TX-500 FM Transmitter Project -  This power meter will let you test both the output power of Q2 (VHF amp) and Q1 (oscillator).  Circuit is now on the separate board so you can fit the main circuit of the smaller PC board. 

The UnFETtered Crystal Radio! -  Several weeks ago I became aware, via the internet, of an experimental AM 'crystal set' style of receiver, that uses what is known as a ZVB (Zero Voltage Bias) device.  This is in the form of an IC , which contains either a 2 pack or 4 pack of specialised FETs (Field Effect Transistors) that require no bias voltage on their gates to conduct current from source to drain.  They simply rely on signal voltages to turn them partially or fully on.  This new IC , dubbed the ALD110900A, is made by Advanced Linear Devices __ Designed by Austin Hellier April 2007

The Wilkinson Power-Combiner On 630m -  it's often easier to achieve high power on 630m or LF by combining lower powered amplifiers than it is to build a single high-power rig. A simple Class D push-pull switching FET amplifier can readily produce 400-500W when operated in the 35V range __ Designed by VE7SL - Steve

Three transistor 750 milliwatt fox transmitter -  This three transistor 144 MHz transmitter uses a 48 MHz scanner crystal as an oscillator / tripler.  A second transistor boosts the signal to 40 milliwatts, a third amplifies the power output to 750 milliwatts. __ Contact Joe Leggio WB2HOL

TM-441 9k6 packet Modification -  Schematic only __ Designed by Guy Roels ON6MU

T-Match ATU (Antenna Tuning Unit) -  A simple T-Match ATU.   I used silver plated copper wire for L1 and L2.  if you use enamelled copper wire, remove the insulation on one side of the coil, so that you can easily change the number of turns used for each band.  if you don't need to cover 160 Metres, L1 can be reduced to about 25 turns.  L2 is only used on 10 Metres. __ Designed by EI9GQ homebrew radio

Tracking transmitter -  Schematic only, no circuit description __ Designed by Andy Wilson

Transmit Arinc 429 Data -  07/11/02 EDN Design ideas:  The ARiNC (Aeronautical Radio inc] 429 specification defines the air transport industry's hardware and protocol standards for the transfer of digital data between avionics systems.  Circuitry that can implement elements of the 429 sp Design by Steve Woodward, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC

Transmitter Accurately Transfers Voltage Input -  15-May-03 EDN Design ideas:  When you connect remote sensors to a central process controller, a simple, robust, and commonly used interface is the 4- to 20-mA loop.  The advantages of this current loop include the simplicity of just two twisted wires that share both power and signal, the loop's high noise immunity in harsh environments, and the de facto loop standard within the process-control industry Design by Clayton Grantham, National Semiconductor, Tucson, AZ

Transmitter FM 45W with valve -  The catering better it does not become at straight line from the network 220V but via transformer 220V/220V of isolation and safety 1AWhen does not exist the R3, the force of expense is bigger, but respectively is increased also the hum 50Hz, because the simplicity of designingThe control (Audio in) can become from a kasseto'fwno or other powerful source.  if it is microphone it will be supposed precedes amplifier so that it acquires a force of order of 8W roughly.   __ Designed by Kyriakos Kontakos

Transmitter for SSB Tranceiver -  For the transmit mixer, I used a simple single ended JFET mixer.  The FET is a J113.  The inductors are TOKO KANK3334.  You can wind your own on TOKO, or similar formers PRI = 18T SEC = 3T __ Designed by EI9GQ homebrew radio

Transmitter senses triple relative-humidity figures -  09/26/02 EDN Design ideas:  The circuit in Figure 1 is a triple, relative-humidity sensor and radio transmitter.  Sensors 1 and 2 form two gated oscillators with natural frequencies of 10 and 5 kHz, respectively, at relative humidity of 50%.  The gated oscillators use variable resistances R2 and R3, respectively.  Together, these two oscillators generate FSK-modulated outputs at output of IC 1B, Pin 6 Design by Shyam Tiwari, Sensors Technology Ltd, Gwalior, India

Transmitter using LM317 -  A few years ago I built one of those projects that never worked, but it did do something unusual.  The PSU side of a portable receiver was very unusual in that it GENERATED RF in the HF spectrum.  The fault was traced to a couple of errors on the PCB.  After a little investigation I used the error to build myself an HF CW QRP transmitter, based upon an LM317T voltage regulator chip! ! !  __ Designed by Harry Lythall-SM0VPO

Transmitter-5 Watt -  This is a very simple 5 watt CW TX based upon a TTL logic chip.  There is just one "tricky" component and this is Cx.  This component should have an impedance of about 10 - 50 ohms at the frequency of interest.  if you wish to reduce the transmitter power, increase the value of Cx.  it is Cx which causes the square wave from the output transistor to approximate a sine waveform.  The value of Cx is the price of simplicity in this TX __ Designed by Harry Lythall-SM0VPO

Transmitters 27 & 303MHz -  in this discussion we cover 27MHz transmitters and receivers as found in remote control cars, aeroplanes, walkie talkies and some of the older-style garage door openers.  We have provided a number of circuits so you can work out the best type for your application and these circuits will also help you understand which components are critical __ Designed by Collin Mitchell

Travel Alarm used to control 250 milliwatt transmitter. -  The timer consists of a Radio Shack travel alarm.  I disconnected the pizeo-ceramic beeper and used the signal to set a flip-flop built from a CMOS 4011.  The output of the flip flop is connected to a switching transistor which supplies voltage to the CW iD.  I used an R/C combination on the flip/flop so it would be reset when first powered up.  A push button is provided so the flip/flop can be set manually (turning on the transmitter)  __ Contact Joe Leggio WB2HOL
