A bipolar regenerative receiver -  Contrary to what some radio experimenters think, a bipolar regenerative design can be made to work efficiently.  The major concern is the low input impedance of the detector-amplifier bipolar.   __ Designed by Ramon Vargas

A Crystal Heater construction project -  OK, here is the circuit I used - See image below.   The original National Semiconductor circuit had a 30 K resistor in series with a 400 µF cap., both in parallel with the 100 K resistor on the input of the 1st LM324 section. __ Designed by Bobengler NO6B

A Field Strength Meter for the FM Transmitters -  This fun project is a home-made 'Tunable Field Strength Meter', tunable for FM Transmitters operating in the FM Broadcast Band.  Below is the detailed plans on how to make this project a success!  The layout of the circuitry is small enough for the finished unit to be placed directly on top of your DVM, in order to keep output leads of the FSM as short as possible.  I had made mine on a 2 inch by 2 inch piece of PCB.  which is more than enough room to place the entire circuitry on.   __ Designed by braincambre500 @ yahoo.com

A small FM transmitter (SMD) -  This SMD FM transmitter has an operating frequency of about 80 to 115MHz.  Under reasonable circumstances you will be able to receive its signal at a distance of about 200 meters.  Although it is low-power, it might be illegal in your part of the planet.  __ 

A Spark Transmitter! -  Now this isn't really for QRP (in fact, it's not at ALL for QRP) , but it was in the projects list, and since the original poster included it (as a joke) , I thought I'dmake it available too.   __ Designed by Harry Lythall-SM0VPO

A Superregen Receiver for FM broadcast or Aircraft band AM reception -  This is the receiver I was bragging about on the Radio index page -- the receiver that is so sensitive it can hear the local oscillator inside a small transistor radio 30 - 50 feet away.  Build one of these little gems and you will be able to hear aircraft pilots many miles away with nothing more than a 24" whip antenna. __ Designed by Rick Andersen

A Variable Power Supply for the FM Transmitters -  This is a fairly simple, yet very versatile workbench power supply.  With a current limit of 1.5 amperes and a variable voltage from 2.7 volts to 16.5 volts on the output of the LM317T, this unit will come in very handy for your diversified electronic projects (which usually include different DC voltages.  I have used it mainly for supplying my FM transmitters with different voltages, to see the different effects it has on the units.  in fact, I use it for all my FM transmitters.  it has served me well.  and is still serving proudly!  __ Designed by braincambre500 @ yahoo.com

ADSB Receiver -  With this design you can expect to get several 100 km range with a good antenna.  I use a home made J-pole with a single 32 Eurocent BFP420 transistor giving excellent low noise gain for very little money.  it can be bought like most of the needed components at Reichelt.  Many good quality (Kathrein for example) Satellite L band line amplifiers use this transistor and if you can get at least 12 Volts to the preamp they offer excellent performance despite being laid out for 75 Ohms.  i'll document the preamp later.  This is what you can get in Luxembourg with a clear view to the South for several kilometers __ Designed by Edward John Cardew

AIR Transparency Monitor, Xenon Flash Transmitter -  This is the matching transmitter for the above receiver.  The transmitter launches powerful 1000-watt light pulses that last about 20 microseconds. . . Circuit by Dave Johnson P.E.-June, 2000

Miranda, Filipe M. M. da Silva e Sousa, Rui Manuel F. S. M. Oliveira

Altoids Tin LowFER Transmitter -  Here's a complete LF Beacon transmitter for LowFER (Low-Frequency Experimental Radio).  The transmitter is designed for license-free operation between 160 kHz and 190 kHz, consuming the legal limit of 1 watt power input to the final RF output stage.  For fun, the complete transmitter is built into an Altoids mint tin.  The circuit is built dead-bug style on a piece of copper clad circuit borad material, lightly painted with Testors transparent Hot Rod Red to prevent tarnish.  The paint doesn't seem to make soldering any more difficult.  The board is grounded to the tin in a few places.   __  Contact:  Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

ALTOIDS Tin Part 15 Version FM Transmitter -  The transmitter uses 2 MPSH10 (equiv BF494 or NTE229) transistors in a double-ended free-running voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) operating at half the output frequency on each side and combined at L2, which is tuned to the 2nd harmonic of the VCO and covers the 88-108 MHz range.  A standard 9 volt battery is used for power and fits inside the tin.  The mono audio input circuit is totally passive with 70us pre-emphasis provided and the audio quality is great.__

AM transmitter using no power supply -  This is AM transmitter, using no power supply.  it moves only by the voice power.  Audio power is translated for electric power and it excite radio frequency oscillator.  And by the way, audio power modulates the radio frequency signal.8cm speaker is used for the microphone.   __ Designed by Sunamura Kazuhiro

AM/FM Simultaneous Transmitter using Digital IC -  We are familiar with transmitters either working in AM or in FM.   But this circcuit transmits both AM and FM signals simultaneously at different frequencies;  AM in 20 Mhz and FM in 100 Mhs. __ Designed by aswinkuma  v

AM-FM-SW Active Antenna -  This simple little circuit can be used for AM, FM, and Shortwave (SW).  On the shortwave band this active antenna is comparable to a 20 to 30 foot wire antenna.    it is further more designed to be used on receivers that use untuned wire antennas, such as inexpensive units and car radios __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

An Audio-Noise-Based Voting -  As hand-held transceivers (H-Ts) become smaller, and low power, battery conserving operation becomes more popular, the disparity between the transmitting range of a typical 100 watt repeater compared to the repeater accessing range of a typical 1 watt or less H-T becomes more and more apparent.  How often have you found it difficult (or impossible) to access a repeater with a low power H-T even though you can hear the repeater at full quieting? This can happen even if the repeater is equipped with a high sensitivity, state-of-the-art receiver.   __ Designed by Mark Kolber  WB2WHC

An SSB transmitter -  This project is relatively simple to construct, and will give a "presentable" SSB signal on the lower HF amateur bands.  Above 14MHz frequency stability may become a little annoying to the listener due to this TX being VFO controlled, but with a little care, and attention to 2nd oscillator component temperature and mechanical stability, operation on 18MHz should be possible __ Designed by Harry Lythall-SM0VPO

Another Simple Circuit FM Transmitter -  Here is the schematic, PC board pattern, and parts placement for a low powered FM transmitter.  The range of the transmitter when running at 9V is about 300 feet.  Running it from 12V increases the range to about 400 feet.  This
transmitter should not be used as a room or telephone bug.   __ Designed by Kamran Ahmed-UK
