Here is a simple USB FM transmitter that could be used to play
Motor Controllers
audio files from an MP3 player or computer on a standard VHF FM
radio by connecting it to an USB port. The circuit use no coils that MP3 Players
have to be wound. This USB transmitter can be used to listen to Oscillators
your own music throughout your home. To keep the fm transmitter
circuit simple as well as compact, it was decided to use a chip made Oscilloscopes
by Maxim Integrated Products, the MAX2606. This IC from the PC Circuits
MAX2605-MAX2609 series has been specifically designed for low- PCB
noise RF applications with a fixed frequency. The VCO (Voltage
Controlled Oscillator) in this IC uses a Colpitts oscillator circuit.Phone Circuits
The variable-capacitance (varicap) diode and feedback capacitors PIC
for the tuning have also been integrated on this chip, so that you PLL Circuits
only need an external inductor to fix the central oscillator frequency.

This easy to build FM transmitter bug can transmit voice to


exceptionally good range. Tune trimmer to hear the signal to your
near radio. Transmitter frequency range is 88-108 MHz. Max
current consumption is 30mA. You can power the fm transmitter
bug with a 9Volt Battery, or you can plug a power supply to feed in
9-12 Volts. That bug will pick even a low whisper or even the sound
of a breath well far from the microphone. Great spy transmitter
equipment.

6 Watt FM Transmitter Amplifier


Posted on Saturday, June 23, 2012 Category: FM Transmitters
After building FM transmitter I decided to build a 6W RF
Transmitter amplifier for the FM band to get more power and we
chose to copy a 6 Watt design built around 2SC1971 RF power
transistor. We were not satisfied with finished result and decided to
replace the fixed capacitors around the pcb inductors with variable
capacitors, this is much better and possible to tune to your
transmitter frequency.

1 Watt QRP Power Transmitter


Posted on Friday, June 8, 2012 Category: FM Transmitters
The 1 watt 20 meter QRP transmitter with VXO. This is a nice QRP
transmitter that can be used in combination of one of the simple
receivers. Normally these designs have only two transistors: one is
the X-tal oscillator and the second the final amplifier. A good
example is my first QRP rig that is also described somewhere on
this site. Here the VXO (Variabele X-tal Oscillator) has a tuning
range of 16 kHz. This VXO is buffered with an extra driver stage
for a better frequency stability and a varicap diode is used instead of
a variabele capacitor. An extra transistor is added for keying the
transmitter with a low keying current. What you can do with such a
simple 1 watt QRP power transmitter. This is a real low power
transmitter, so do not expect that you can do everything with it but...
When conditions are normal, you can easily make many QSO's
during one afternoon with stations with distances upto 2000 km
with a simple inverted V wire dipole antenna! From Europe, I did
even make QSO's across the Ocean!

500mW PLL FM Transmitter 88-108MHz


Posted on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 Category: FM Transmitters
This PLL transmitter is controlled and the frequency is very stable
and can be programmed digitally. Transmitter will work 88-108
MHz and output power up to 500mW. With a small change can set
the frequency of 50-150 MHz. The output power is often set to
several watts with transistors. So therefore I decided to build a
simple transmitter with great performances. The frequency of this
transmitter can easily be changed by software and space / compress
air coil. This transmitter is the oscillator colpitts. Oscillator is a
VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) which is set by the PLL circuit
and PIC micro controller. This oscillator is called the Colpitts
oscillator and voltage controlled to achieve the FM (frequency
modulation) and PLL control.
3 Watt FM Transmitter
Posted on Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Category: FM Transmitters

This is the schematic for an FM transmitter with 3 to 3.5 W output


power that can be used between 90 and 110 MHz. Stability of this
transmitter is not bad and PLL circuit can be added on. This is a
circuit that I've build a few years ago for a friend, who used it in
combination with the BLY88 amplifier to obtain 20 W output
power. From the notes that I made at the original schematic, it
worked fine with a SWR of 1 : 1.05 (quite normal at my place with
my antenna).

200mW FM Broadcast Transmitter


Posted on Sunday, April 1, 2012 Category: FM Transmitters
A simple 200mW FM Transmitter circuit which covers frequencies
from 88 to 108 MHz. It is built with 3 transistors: BC109, BFR91A
and BFR96S. It is quite stable and the output power is around
200mW. The first stage of transmitter is a mic amplifier but if you
connect this radio transmitter directly to an audio source you can
remove this stage and connect the audio signal to R5. U1, 1PH51C
can be replaced with LM7805. You must use a stabilized power
source for oscillator stage to prevent frequency variation. You can
remove C7 and use a linear potentiometer instead of R6 with the
median connector to C4, one pin to ground and the other one to +.
FM Transmitter uses MV2109 varicap diode and C7 for frequency
tuning.

Coilless FM Transmitter
Posted on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 Category: FM Transmitters
The RF oscillator using the inverter N2 and 10.7Mhz ceramic filter
is driving the parallel combination of N4 to N6 through N3.Since
these inverters are in parallel the output impedance will be low so
that it can directly drive an aerial of 1/4th wavelength. Since the
output of N4-N6 is square wave there will be a lot of harmonics in
it. The 9th harmonics of 10.7Mhz (96.3Mhz) will hence be at the
center of the FM band. N1 is working as an audio amplifier. The
audio signals from the microphone are amplified and fed to the
varicap diode. The signal varies the capacitance of the varicap and
hence varies the oscillator frequency which produce Frequency
Modulation.

1.5V Tracking Transmitter


Posted on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 Category: FM
Transmitters
With this circuit you can build a very small tracking transmitter that
can be tracked using a FM broadcast band radio receiver. The
transmitter can be powered from any 1.5V volt battery or power
supply. Transmitter has a range up to 1 mile depending on battery
voltage, height above ground, receiver sensitivity, and antenna
length. Under certain conditions distances of 1 mile have been
achieved. It is recommended that this transmitter be used with FM
radios that can tune continuously across the dial. The better the
receiver and receiver antenna system the greater the practical range
of the transmitter, however good functionality can be achieved with
the least expensive radios and using only the standard telescoping
antenna included with most radios.

BH1417 USB FM Transmitter


Posted on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 Category: FM
Transmitters
Here's BH1417 USB FM Transmitter with built-in PLL circuit. Its
low-frequency signal is converted into high-frequency, which can
take any audio device with FM radio (stereo, car CD, MP3, DVD
player, etc.), as a normal radio station. Transmitter power is
sufficient for reliable reception of its signal within a few tens of
meters. The basis of the device is a chip BH1417F, included in a
typical scheme. This device contains all the necessary circuitry to
generate a composite stereo signal c of the pilot tone, the RF
generator with PLL and power amplifier. A detailed description is
given in.

300mW FM Transmitter
Posted on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Category: FM
Transmitters

Here's a long range 300mW FM Transmitter for the 88MHz to


108MHz band. This particular TX is of special interest to those
wishing to build low power Power Amplifiers for the VHF bands
since it used impedance matching, power amplifier and antenna
filtering, all of which should be used by radio constructors, whether
it be for amateur radio or any other form of radio. The features of
this project are: Higher output power - 150mW min (at 9v) and
300mW+ (at 12.5v). Very pure output signal due to careful design
and filtering. VARICAP modulation - possibility to add a
synthesizer. Single sided Printed Circuit Board, only 40mm x
72mm. Covers the domestic FM band - 88MHz to 108MHz. Easy to
build, but coil winding experience IS required

1.5V FM Broadcast Transmitter


Posted on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 Category: FM
Transmitters

The objective of this 1.5V FM Broadcast Transmitter design is to


provide a simple low-power transmitter solution for broadcasting
audio from various audio sources. This transmitter accepts stereo
input via two 470K resistors. Since there is no audio level control on
the input, the audio level out from the source needs to be adjusted.
Or, you can just add a 10k as an input level control. Transmitter's
frequency, as built is tunable via spreading or compressing the coil
to the desired frequency, and the coil can be glued down. If you
want to make one that's tunable, it might be easiest to reduce the 18
pf capacitor and put a small trimmer capacitor in parallel with the
inductor (across the reduced value capacitor). Voltage variable
capacitors would be an nice alternative to a mechanical variable
capacitor but they don't offer much tuning range with only a 1.5V
power supply.

FM Broadcast Transmitter
Posted on Sunday, January 8, 2012 Category: FM Transmitters

This FM Broadcast Transmitter circuit will transmit a continuous


audio tone on the FM broadcast band (88-108 MHz) which could
used for remote control or security purposes. Circuit draws about 30
mA from a 6-9 volt battery and can be received to about 100 yards.
A 555 timer is used to produce the tone (about 600 Hz) which
frequency modulates a Hartley oscillator. A second JFET transistor
buffer stage is used to isolate the oscillator from the antenna so that
the antenna position and length has less effect on the frequency.
Fine frequency adjustment can be made by adjusting the 200 ohm
resistor in series with the battery. Oscillator frequency is set by a 5
turn tapped inductor and 13 pF capacitor.

Phone Spy Transmitter


Posted on Friday, December 30, 2011 Category: FM
Transmitters
Here is a very simple telephone broadcaster transmitter which can
be used to eavesdrop on a telephone conversation. The circuit can
also be used as a wireless telephone amplifier. One important
feature of this phone transmitter is that the circuit derives its power
directly from the active telephone lines, and thus avoids use of any
external battery or other power supplies.

1Watt AM CW Transmitter for 10 Meterband


Posted on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 Category: FM
Transmitters

In this project, you will make a simple 3-stage low-power


broadcast-type circuit, using a crystal oscillator integrated circuit
and an a collector modulated AM oscillator with amplifier. You can
connect the circuit to the an electred microphone or amplified
dynamic microphone. Using an electred microphone is shown (in
gray) in the diagram below. (no amplified dynamic microphone has
a to low output voltage to work. at least 100mv is needed). You
could also add a LF preamp stage of one transistor to allow
connecting a dynamic microphone directly. You'll see that you can
receive the signal through the air with almost any AM radio
receiver. Although the circuits used in radio stations for AM
receiving are far more complicated, this nevertheless gives a basic
idea of the concept behind a principle transmitter. Plus it is a lot of
fun when you actually have it working! Remember that transmitting
on the 10 meter band you'll need a valid radioamateur license!! A
wide range of different circuits have been used for AM, but one of
the simplest circuits uses collector modulation applied via (for
example) a transformer, while it is perfectly possible to create good
designs using solid-state electronics as I applied here (T1 BC557).
The transmitter is build as a Colpitts Oscillator with a BSX20
transistor. HF-output of the oscillator is approx. 50 mW, depending
on the supply voltage of 6 to 15 Volts. This is amplified by the
BD135 and brings the power up to approx. 1 watt @ 12volts. The
transmit frequency is stabilized with the 28Mhz crystal. A slight
detuning of approx 1kc is possible when using a 120pF trimmer
capacitor for C8. The oscillator signal is taken from the collector of
T2 and guided to the input of T3 which output is lead via an L-filter
and low-pass PII filter circuit cleaning up the signal pretty good and
ensuring spectral purity. The oscillator is keyed by T1 and the morse
key (S). By keying the morse-key T1 is not been used for
modulation and is biased, hence lets T2 freely oscillate.

output you can drive any linear with BGY133 or BLY87 and so on.
Its power supply has to give 500mA current at 12 Volts. More
voltage can boost the distance but the transistors will be burned
much earlier than usual.! In any case do not exceed the 15Volts. The
Amp offers 15 dB in the area of 80Mhz to 110 Mhz. L4, L5, and L6
are 5mm diameter air coils, 8 turns, with wire 1mm wire
diameter.An easy project, with great results.

Stereo FM Transmitter with BA1404


Posted on Sunday, October 23, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
A high quality stereo FM transmitter circuit is shown here. The
circuit is based on the IC BA1404 from ROHM Semiconductors.
BA1404 is a monolithic FM stereo modulator that has built in stereo
modulator, FM modulator and RF amplifier. The FM modulator can
be operated from 76 to 108MHz and power supply for the circuit
can be anything between 1.25 to 3 volts. In the circuit R7, C16, C14
and R6, C15, C13 forms the pre-emphasis network for the right and
left channels respectively. This is done for matching the frequency
response of the FM transmitter with the FM receiver. Inductor L1
and capacitor C5 is used to set the oscillator frequency. Network
C9,C10, R4,R5 improves the channel separation. 38kHz crystal X1
is connected between pins 5 and 6 of the IC. Composite stereo
signal is created by the stereo modulator circuit using the 38kHz
quartz controlled frequency.

jack and, constructed as shown, without the optional antenna
connections, will broadcast an FM radio signal about 30 feet. This is
the standard model of simplest FM transmitters includes a trim
capacitor to adjust the transmitting frequency. It can be powered by
a 9V battery and uses a hand-turned copper coil. The circuit is
extraordinarily simple and could be built on perfboard or on a panel
almost as easily.

Transmitters
This is a simple design of a small FM Transmitter Bug that's perfect
for transmitting and eavesdropping purposes. Due to the high
sensitivity, even the ticking of the clock to hear. The range is
estimated at anything from 50 meters. With a small piece of wire as
an antenna to get at least the whole house. L1 and L2 are two equal
air pools. They each consist of 5 turns at a diameter of about 4 mm.
The thickness of the wire does not matter, 0.5 mm works perfectly.

of the FM band and C4 to turn your silence or hear a whistle. From
what you can precisely adjust the radio and the transmitter installed
in a room somewhere to intercept. Note: Because these transmitter

PLL Stereo FM Transmitter


Posted on Friday, September 23, 2011 Category: FM
Transmitters

The circuit shown here is of a good Stereo FM transmitter that can


transmit high quality signals up to a range of 70 feet. The circuit is
based on BH1417 PLL stereo transmitter IC from Rhom
semiconductors. The IC has separate audio processing sections for
the left and right channels, pre emphasis circuit for improving signal
to noise ratio, crystal control circuitry for accurate frequency
locking, multiplex circuit for making sum ( left plus right) and
difference ( left minus right) {see this article for better
understanding Stereo decoder circuit} etc. Another important feature
of this IC is that the transmission frequency can be set using a 4
channel DIP switch. The IC can be powered from anything between
4 to 6V DC and has an output power around 20mW. At full output
power the circuit consumes only 20mA and has a channel separation
of 40dB.There are 14 possible preset transmission frequencies,
starting from 88.7MHz and incrementing in steps of 0.2MHz that
can be selected using the DIP switch. The PLL circuitry of the IC is
so precise that there is practically no frequency drift.

Miniature FM Transmitter

Transmitters
This miniature transmitter is easy to construct and it's transmissions
can be picked up on any standard FM receiver. It has a range of up
to 1/4 of a mile or more. It is great for room monitoring, baby
listening, nature research, etc. L1 is 8 to 10 turns of 22 gauge
hookup wire close wound around a non-conductive 1/4 inch
diameter form, such as a pencil. C4 is a small, screw-adjustable,
trimmer capacitor. Set your FM receiver for a clear, blank space in
the lower end of the band. Then, with a non-conductive tool, adjust
this capacitor for the clearest reception. A little experimenting and
patience may be in order. Most of the parts' values are not critical,
so you can try adjusting them to see what happens.

FM Transmitter Circuit
Posted on Monday, August 8, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
Here is the circuit diagram of the simple FM transmitter using a
transistor. Great performance or range is not guaranteed here,
because this is an elementary design. General purpose radio
frequency transistor BF 494 (Q1) is used here for obtaining FM
modulation. A condenser mic is used here to pickup the sound.The
condenser mic converts the sound to electrical variations and this
variations are fed to the base of Q1 , which performs the
amplification as well as modulation.The capacitor C2 and L1
determines the frequency of transmission.The circuit can be
powered from a 9V transistor radio battery.

80 MHz - 108 MHz FM Transmitter


Posted on Thursday, August 4, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
FM transmitter or often called fm transmitter uses 2 transistors in
this article uses 2 transistors 2n2222. If the fm transmitter is in use
voltage supply of 9 volt battery and use an antenna whose length is
less than 12 inches, then this fm transmitter will be within FCC
limits. Signals from the microphone in the fm transmitter is
reinforced by Q1, Q2 with carrier frequency generator is determined
by the C5 and L1. The frequency of the FM transmitter is in the
range 80 MHz - 108 MHz. L1 can be made with as many as 24 e-
mail wire wrap and 6 wrap. The following is a picture series for the

transistor.

VHF FM Transmitter MAX2606


Posted on Monday, August 1, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
If you want to be independent of the local radio stations for testing
VHF receivers, you need a frequency-modulated oscillator that
covers the range of 89.5 to 108 MHz but building such an
oscillator using discrete components is not that easy. Maxim now
has available a series of five integrated oscillator building blocks in
the MAX260x series which cover the frequency range between 45
and 650 MHz. The only other thing you need is a suitable external
coil, dimensioned for the midrange frequency.

1W FM Transmitter
Posted on Wednesday, July 27, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
A very good 1 watt fm transmitter circuit, very easy to build circuit.
It has 4 transistors, one is a very stable oscillator, followed by a
buffer stage to prevent frequency variation when you adjust the
transmitter. Next is a resonance stage and the final stage built with a
minimum 1W transistor which must have a heatsink. You must use a
LM7805 stabilizer for the oscillator diodes and one LM7809 for
powering up the T1 oscillator stage. This will give you a very stable
transmitter frequency.

2 Watt FM Transmitter

FR-4 single sided photoresist epoxy pcb material for best results.

5 Watt Transmitter
Posted on Thursday, July 14, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

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.

Wireless Microphone FM Transmitter


Posted on Monday, July 11, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

This Wireless Microphone FM Transmitter has been a very popular


project with beginners and experienced constructors alike. It has
been used inside guitars and as the basis of a remote control system.
I do however, receive many requests for a higher powered circuit
and better microphone sensitivity. Now I can introduce the new FM
Wireless Microphone, which also has a better frequency stability,
over 1Km range (under ideal conditions) and is good on microphone
sensitivity. This has been achieved by adding an RF amplifier buffer
(with 10dB gain) and an AF preamplifier to boost the modulation a
little.

40mW FM TRANSMITTER
Posted on Friday, July 8, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
The transmitters on my homepage seem to be quite popular,
especially those intended for the 88 - 108MHz FM band. I must
really confess that I also favor this broadcast band, mainly because
it is so easy to find signals on the workshop radio. Everyone has an
FM radio, and it is fun to play with. Experimental antennas and the
like can all be developed in this band since there are a huge range of
"beacons" all transmitting just for my benefit :-). Basic oscillators
also are easy to fault-find in this frequency band, and then later
modified for other VHF bands. The V5 FM Wireless Microphone is
a 10mW transmitter that featured a coil fabricated on the PCB itself.
This made the project easy to duplicate and removed "microphony"
(the ability of coils to act as a microphone with spring-line reverb).
But as several people have already commented, although more
stable than most other similar kits and projects, the frequency still
does vary with battery voltage. In just one session it can vary by
200kHz when a cheap "Mighty Atom" battery falls to 8 volts.

Long Range FM Transmitter


Posted on Thursday, July 7, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
Presented here is a Long Range FM Transmitter. This circuit is a
super-sensitive, mini-powered FM transmitter consisting of a RF
(radio Frequency) oscillator section interfaced with a high
sensitivity, wide pass-band audio amplifier and capacitance mike
with a built-in FET (Field Effect Transistor) that modulates the base
of the RF oscillator transistor. Transistor Q1 forms a relatively
stable RF oscillator whose frequency and is determined by the value
of coil L1 and turning capacitor C4.

100W Transmitter RF Power Amplifier 2SC2782


Posted on Thursday, June 30, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
This is a 6m band transmitter RF power amplifier (50 MHz) with
100W output. It used with my FT-736R and drive from 10W for the
6m SSB DX. The Building information comes from Japan CQ
Magazine. The Toshiba RF bipolar power transistor is used in it. If
you want to construct this rf amplifier, it's the better way if the
double side PCB use for increase the grounding and current transfer.
The TX power can be tune to 120W.

1.5 Watt FM Transmitter


Posted on Tuesday, June 28, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
Presented here is a 1.5 Watt FM Transmitter. A transmitter is an
installation in which electrical oscillations are generated by an
antenna as radio waves are emitted.Although there are a variety of
channels exist in terms of size, application and frequency, each
transmitter is an oscillator is present (usually crystal controlled) that
an electric thrill, the carrier, with a constant frequency
electricity.This is followed by one or more selective amplifier stages
tuned oscillation circuits, which usually frequency multiplication is
performed.Modulation can occur at low power, and even
strengthening of the modulated signal to the power required to
reach.Modulation can also occur at high power, when the carrier
signal and separately reinforced.

RF Field Strength Meter


Posted on Thursday, June 23, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

Most transmitter has several variable capacitors which are used to


match impedance for transistors and antennas. I know people hate
trimmers and so did I. The reason is that it is difficult to trim a
system if you can't measure the performances. To trim a transmitter
you need to measure the output power. Most transmitter are tuned
with a dummy load of 50 ohm to substitute an antenna of 50 ohm.
Not everyone has a power meter, and how can you know that the
antenna you connect is purely 50 ohm. If not, the hole trimming is
waste of time! What you would like to do is to measure the radiated
power out from the antenna you actually are going to use. If you can
measure the radiated energy field you can easy tune the system for
max output field strength (max power). So, how can we measure the
radiated energy field? The block diagram at right show you one easy
way to measure the RF filed strength. To the left you find a dipole
antenna. The antenna should be cut to match the receiving
frequency ...

80W RF Amplifier 88-108 MHz


Posted on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

This is 80W RF power amplifier that boosts FM Transmitter's power


using 2SC2782 bipolar transistors in a tuned class C circuit. RF
amplifier can be driven to full 80W power with less than 1 watt
driving input power, so that a large gain margin results in this FM
transmitter. To obtain stability in this RF amplifier, I employed
several techniques, such as placing the resonances of base and
collector chokes far apart, damping the chokes with resistors, using
RC combinations for absorption of unwanted frequencies, using
feed trough capacitors for bypassing on the board, etc. It took some
tweaking, but the amplifier ended up unconditionally stable.

Building Simple FM Transmitter
Posted on Saturday, June 11, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

Here's how to build a simple FM Transmitter. This tiny transmitter


has smaller radius of the service area, lower quality of the sounds
and the relatively unstable frequency. These can be considered as a
compromise to easily have your own transmitter for the time being
or as a more positive choice. These "defects" are only from the
perspective of conventional transmission such as "clear stereo sound
to receive anywhere". Artist could change these to another
directions. Whether or not, you can experience a convivial wireless
imagination by this transmitter.

Micro Spy PLL FM Transmitter


Posted on Thursday, June 9, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

This micro spy PLL FM Transmitter transmits on the 160MHz


frequency (if we use a 40MHz quartz) and therefore can be listened
through a receiver tuned on this frequency. This circuit can be used
to on various frequencies, for example on the FM band 88-108 just
modifying some components, among which the quartz (25MHz).
Voice is detected by an electret microphone, then it is amplified and
filtered by U1 pass-band in order then to be modulated from the
carrier section, where through the varicap diode it "mixes" with the
frequency generated by the quartz, that guarantees an adapted
stability. Practically the modulating voltage is obtained applying the
audio signal to the resonating circuit varicap diode that determines
the carrier oscillation. The carrier frequency (160 MHz) must be
greater than the modulating frequency (300-3300 Hz) audio band.
The transmission is on the fourth harmonic, therefore 160MHz, the
oscillation frequency of the driver RF transistor Q1. A small
calibration is allowed acting on the L1 inductance and the C1
Trimmer Capacitor.

Simple FM Transmitter
Posted on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
Mini FM transmitters take place as one of the standard circuit types
in an amateur electronics fan's beginning steps. When done right,
they provide very clear wireless sound transmission through an
ordinary FM radio over a remarkable distance. I've seen lots of
designs through the years, some of them were so simple, some of
them were powerful, some of them were hard to build etc. Here is
the last step of this evolution, the most stable, smallest, problem-
less, and energy saving champion of this race. Circuit given below
will serve as a durable and versatile FM transmitter till you break or
crush it's PCB. Frequency is determined by a parallel L-C resonance
circuit and shifts very slow as battery drains out.

8W PLL Stereo Transmitter with LCD


Posted on Friday, May 27, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
This is 8W PLL Stereo Transmitter with LCD. It is a stable PLL FM
transmitter based on TSA5511 synthesizer. Frequency is performed
with three buttons through PIC16F84 microcontroller. Frequency of
the transmitter is displayed on 16x1 LCD. Transmitter oscillator is
based around BF981, BFR91, BFR96 transistors. 2SC1971 RF
power transistor can be replaced with 2N4427 or 2N3553 but they
will provide less output power.

Long Range FM Transmitter


Posted on Friday, May 20, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
The power output of many transmitter circuits are very low because
no power amplifier stages are incorporated. The transmitter circuit
described here has an extra RF power amplifier stage, after the
oscillator stage, to raise the power output to 200-250 milliwatts.
With a good matching 50-ohm ground plane antenna or multi-
element Yagi antenna, this transmitter can provide reasonably good
signal strength up to a distance of about 2 kilometres. The circuit
built around transistor T1 (BF494) is a basic low-power variable-
frequency VHF oscillator. A varicap diode circuit is included to
change the frequency of the transmitter and to provide frequency
modulation by audio signals. The output of the oscillator is about 50
milliwatts. Transistor T2 (2N3866) forms a VHF-class A power
amplifier. It boosts the oscillator signal power four to five times.
Thus, 200-250 milliwatts of power is generated at the collector of
transistor T2.

5 Watts FM RF Amplifier
Posted on Monday, May 9, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
This fm rf amplifier uses 2SC1971 transistor to provide 5 watts of
output. Output matching is adjusted via the two 40pF trimmer
capacitors likewise also to the input. Note that the emitter of this
transistor is directly grounded on the heat sink and should have a
good thermal transfer. Driving power of 100 to 200mW can be
applied in order to provide 5watts of output. Use a dummy load to
tune this amplifier and remember that the transistor is biased in
Class C, sufficient filtering should be followed after the output to
minimize all the harmonics. Use ground plane construction
technique in the PCB lay-out for best result, the more the grounding
the better. If you have hard time finding the 10uH rf choke, try to
wind 1/2 meter of 0.2mm enamel wire over a 33K 1/2 watt resistor
and solder the coil ends to the legs of the resistor.

FM Transmitter with Varactor Diode Tuning


Posted on Monday, May 9, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
Presented here is a low-power FM transmitter with varactor diode
tuning using surface-mount devices (SMD) that will be received
with a standard FM radio. Soldering surface mounted devices is not
so hard and actually is quite easy. There are many designs for small
FM transmitters but they have some problems. First, you need an
audio amplifier to get enough modulation. Second, the antenna is
attached directly to the collector. Third, the coil L must be wound by
hand and adjusted by stretching. It all ads with a weak signal that
tends to drift in frequency. In contrast the transmitter schematic we
present here eliminates some of those problems, using varactor
diode for tuning and modulation, givin great sensitivity without an
audio amplifier.

100W Transmitter Amplifier for 2200m


Posted on Sunday, May 8, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
This particular transmitter was later shipped up to VY1JA in the
Yukon where, thanks to Jay's excellent antenna system, it was heard
in Europe as well as in New Zealand during one of the Trans-Pacific
Tests! Running 24 volts on the final will produce 100 watts into a 50
ohm load. The transmitter utilizes a 4060 binary counter IC chip as
both the crystal oscillator and frequency divider. I used a 2200 kHz
crystal along with the 'divide-by' sixteen output to produce a signal
at 137.5 kHz. Other combinations of crystal frequencies and 'divide-
by' combinations may also be used since the 4060 features divided
outputs for f/32 (pin 5) and f/64 (pin 4), among others. You may
have a 4MHz crystal or an 8MHz crystal in your junk box that will
put you in the band using these output pins.

High Power FM Wireless Microphone


Posted on Thursday, April 28, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
This FM Wireless Microphone has been a very popular project with
beginners and experienced constructors alike. It has been used
inside guitars and as the basis of a remote control system. I do
however, receive many requests for a higher powered circuit and
better microphone sensitivity. This High Power FM Wireless
Microphone has a better frequency stability, over 1 Km range and is
good on microphone sensitivity. This has been achieved by adding
an RF amplifier buffer (with 10dB gain) and an AF preamplifier to
boost the modulation a little.

BA1404 HI-FI Stereo FM Transmitter


Posted on Thursday, April 28, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

This FM transmitter design is a result of many hours of testing and


tweaking. The goal was simple; to test many existing BA1404
transmitter designs, compare their performance, identify weaknesses
and come up with a new BA1404 transmitter design that improves
sound quality, has very good frequency stability, maximizes
transmitter's range, and is fairly simple for everyone to build. We
are happy to announce that this goal and expectations have been met
and even exceeded. The transmitter can work from a single 1.5V
cell battery and provide excellent crystal clear stereo sound. It can
also be supplied from two 1.5V battery cells to provide the
maximum range. One of the qualities of BA1404 FM transmitter is
excellent frequency stability. This is mainly due to a use of high
quality 3.5 turn variable coil. Tunable RF coils are ideal for precise
frequency tuning because their magnet wire is halfway embedded
within the plastic, which minimizes frequency drifts. Regular air
coils are not preferred for professional broadcasting because the coil
expands and contracts with temperature changes. That's the very
reason why variable coil was chosen as a substitution for an air coil
and a variable capacitor.

1KM Power FM Transmitter


Posted on Sunday, April 17, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

This small power FM transmitter can transmit more than 1 km in


good conditions. The modulation can be made so much with a
microphone or audio source. Circuit of power fm transmitter is built
around 2n2218 transistor. Transmitter coil is 5 turns of enameled 22
AWG wire, with diameter of 1 cm without nucleus. Look at the
capacitors that it should be ceramic. The antenna should possess
from 15 to 40 cm. For transmission it ties a receiver of FM (radio)
in the proximity to half volume in a free frequency (that there is not
any radio operating), with a wood or plastic key, rotate the screw of
CV to capture the frequency of the transmitter.

1.5V Battery Operated Rebroadcast FM Transmitter


Posted on Friday, April 15, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

This implementation is adapted to rebroadcast the output of a CD


player, television receiver, or radio receiver. I use it so that I can
move about the house and listen to my favorite programs without
disturbing others. Within and the house, I find that I can get 10 to 20
meters away from the transmitter with the small pocket FM receiver
I carry in my shirt pocket. Your mileage may vary. The transmitter
as built and pictured below (the transmitter is in the blob of hot melt
glue on the end of the battery holder) does not have an on-off
switch. I put a 1.5 AA cell that was run down too far to run my CD
player in this transmitter and it ran for over a month before I
replaced it. The one in the transmitter at this moment has been
running it continuously for over three months. Current draw is only
about a milliamp with a new battery (assuming you don't have a
super-high beta transistor in which case the theoretical limit is about
2.5 ma). An on-off swich is not necessary, though it may satisfy an
emotional need.

Mini FM Transmitter
Posted on Thursday, April 14, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
9 Volt battery operated simple Mini FM Transmitter. FM
Transmitter is very simple, compact, and has transmission signal
with a range of 100-150m, good sensitivity and low current
consumption. Transmitter's schematic consists of a bass amplifier
for the first transistor and the proper frequency generator in the
second. FM Transmitter divided transitional capacitor that allows
you to set up a cascade separately.

Broadcast FM Transmitter
Posted on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
Here's a nice AC mains powered FM Broadcast Audio Transmitter
with pre-emphasis, audio level control, and tuning control. The
circuit consists of a frequency modulated oscillator, an audio
preamplifier with pre emphasis to supply the frequency modulating
signal, and a buffer amplifier to drive the antenna connector.
Oscillator's frequency is determined by L1 resonating with the 10 pf
capacitor and the total capacitance across it. The collector-base
capacitance of the transistors Q3, Q4, and Q5 is a function of their
revers bias. This is basically a poor man's (or lazy man's) varactor.
The voltage across Q3 is set by a voltage divider and is then
modulated by an Ac coupled audio signal from the pre amp, causing
the reverse bias to vary with the audio signal, which changes the
resonant frequency of L1's circuit, causing the frequency of the
oscillator to vary with the audio signal. The capacitance of Q4 and
Q5 is adjusted by DC bias from the tuning adjustment
potentiometer, and this capacitance sets the center frequency of the
oscillator. All of the transistors in the oscillator -Q1 through Q5, are
2N4401. The purpose of the buffer is to minimize frequency shift as
loading on the antenna is changed. It was specifically designed to
reduce the signal amplitude to the antenna. Transmitters should not
use any more power than is necessary to achieve the task at hand,
and lightly coupling the RF into the buffer's base with a gimmick
capacitor did the trick. The transistor is an MPSH34.

1.5V Spy FM Transmitter Bug


Posted on Saturday, April 9, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters

Here's a tiny one transistor spy FM transmitter bug that operates


from a single 1.5V AA battery. Main advantage of this circuit is that
power supply is a 1.5 Volts cell (any size) which makes it possible
to fix PCB and the battery into very tight places. Transmitter even
runs with standard NiCd rechargeable cells, for example a 750mAh
AA size battery runs it about 500 hours (while it draws 1.4mA at
1.24V) which equals to 20 days. This way circuit especially
valuable in amateur spy operations. Mini FM transmitters take place
as one of the standard circuit types in an amateur electronics fan's
beginning steps. When done right, they provide very clear wireless
sound transmission through an ordinary FM radio over a remarkable
distance. I've seen lots of designs through the years, some of them
were so simple, some of them were powerful, some of them were
hard to build etc.

300m FM Transmitter
Posted on Thursday, April 7, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
This FM transmitter is about the simplest and most basic FM
transmitter it is possible to build and have a useful transmitting
range. It is surprisingly powerful despite its small component count
and 3V operating voltage. It will easily transmit over 300 meters in
the open air and even more with higher voltage supply. The circuit
we use is based on a proven Australian design. It may be tuned
anywhere in the FM band. Or it may be tuned outside the
commercial M band for greater privacy. Of course this means you
must modify your FM radio to be able to receive the transmission or
have a broad-band FM receiver. The output power of FM transmitter
is within the legal limits of many countries. However, some
countries may ban all wireless FM transmitters without a license. It
is your responsibility to check the legal requirements for the
operation and to obey them. FM transmitter is constructed on a
single-sided printed circuit board PCB.

PLL FM Transmitter using LMX1601, ATtiny2313 AT90S2313


Posted on Tuesday, April 5, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
Here's a PLL FM Transmitter using LMX1601, ATtiny2313 or
AT90S2313 microcontrollers. The common characteristic of all of
the previous low power FM transmitters I've built over the decades,
is that their operating frequency is determined by an LC resonant
circuit. Some of them had excellent stability, some of them didn't,
but I had always wanted to make one that is crystal controlled.
Various schemes had been considered from time-to-time, including
the direct approach of modulating the load capacitance of a a crystal
oscillator, a whimsical phase modulation scheme involving a phase
shifter, some balanced modulators, and limiting amplifiers, and at
times, the down-to-earth and sober approach of modulating a VCO
within a phase locked loop (PLL). While browsing Digikey's online
catalog, I found the LMX1601 frequency synthesizer chip and
thought: "Just maybe, the PLL approach is finally within my grasp."
The LMX1601, which apparently was designed for use in cell
phones, includes everything need to make two phase locked loops
except for the VCOs. More importantly, one of the PLLs,
specifically the "AUX" PLL, is specified to work in the FM
broadcast band. The LMX1600 and the LMX1602 were also
considered, but the LMX1601 was selected because it has a "500
MHz option", meaning that it can work down to about 50 MHz.

FM Telephone Transmitter

The FM telephone circuit is built on a PC board that is so small it


can easily be fitted inside the housing of a telephone making it an
instant pseudo-speak earphone. This FM transmitter circuit connects
in series with telephone line, steals power from it, and transmits
both sides of the conversation to an FM radio tuned between 90 and
95 MHz.

FM Transmitter Bug
Posted on Friday, March 4, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
The goal of this project is for me personally to learn a little more
about fm transmitters and fm bug making (may the HAM radio gods
bless me in this pursuit). The ideal outcome of this project is a very
small and full functional FM transmitter that we can stick into a
plastic mint box. In order to be able to build this, we'll have to learn
a lot about amplifiers, LC oscillators, mixers, antennas and FM.
This project assumes you're already comfortable build your own
PCB boards. If you're not please take a look at the homemade pcb's
tutorial before you continue. It will help you out a lot.

Small AM Transmitter
Posted on Sunday, January 30, 2011 Category: FM Transmitters
So, I needed a small transmitter, which would allow me to transmit
good, old music into my AM-only radios. So, one saturday
afternoon I got into gear, designed and built a very crude, terribly
non-optimized little transmitter. It's almost a joke expressed in
electronics, full of poor design, so please don't think that this is the
best I can do! You must see it as a quick and dirty 5-hour effort,
because that's all the time the transmitter took to design, build, and
test. Making this web page about it is taking much longer! I'm
putting this thing on the web only because many people have asked
me to do so, despite its crude design!

A Wide Dynamic Range Field Strength Meter


Posted on Saturday, January 29, 2011 Category: FM
Transmitters
This unit is an updated version of the Wide Dynamic Range Field
Strength Meter. While the basic function is the same, it has several
critical differences: It uses a specialized integrated circuit, the
Analog Devices AD8307. This chip is designed specifically as a
logarithmic amplifier for use through 500 MHz. Using the AD8307,
it has a wider dynamic range (85 dB versus 55 dB) and it has built-
in temperature compensation. Because of the different nature of this
type of detector - and the fact that it has temperature compensation -
means that there is no need for a "zeroing" control. One
disadvantage of this approach as compared to the diode approach is
that the AD8307 has a lower frequency response than the diode. The
frequency limit of the meter is dictated pretty much by the diodes
themselves along with their physical layout and related components:
There is no reason why the earlier version could not be constructed
to work through 10 GHz or so - but the AD8307 is falling flat by the
time you get to 1 GHz, making it unsuitable for detecting wireless
LANs or PCS-type cell phones.

Wideband SWR Meter


Posted on Thursday, January 27, 2011 Category: FM
Transmitters
Everyone involved with radio transmitters needs some instruments
to assess basic antenna functionality. Among these instruments, the
best-known and most-used one is the Standing Wave Ratio meter.
Some radio amateurs develop a cult for these little gadgets, having
them in line all the time and watching the needles bounce while they
chat. I have seen some guys owning 5 or 6 SWR meters, and no
other instrument relating to antenna testing! While it's unfortunate
that some people - specially amateurs - assign so much importance
to SWR and so little to other parameters, it's also a fact that SWR
needs to be known, so if you use transmitters, you need an SWR
meter.

3V FM Transmitter for 88MHz to 108MHz


Posted on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 Category: FM
Transmitters

The important part of the circuit is formed of the Colpitts type


oscillator. C3,C4,C5,C6,CD1-CD2 and L1 determines the
frequency. BF982 and dual gate MOSFET are active parts in
oscillator. When the input impedance of the MOSFET gate inputs
are high, LC tank is not affected. However transistors force the LC
tank and cause phase shift. Two driver stages are added to isolate
the antenna from oscillator. First stage (BF199) amplifies the low
signal of the oscillator and works as a constant load. The second
stage (BFR90) amplifies the signal going through the antenna some
more. A short copper wire can be used as an antenna here. Attaching
a large antenna to this circuit is unnecessary because the output
power is low.

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
no battery. It uses the signal on the phone line for power. No aerial

radiates it in the FM band. The frequency of transmission may be
adjusted by the trimcap.

Single Chip FM Transmitter


Posted on Wednesday, April 23, 2008 Category: FM
Transmitters
A simple FM transmitter links your home-entertainment system to a
portable radio that can be carried around the house and into the back
yard. For example, you can play music on the CD changer in your
living room, and listen to it on a portable radio by the back-yard
barbeque. IC1 is a voltage-controlled oscillator with integrated
varactor. Its nominal frequency of oscillation is set by inductor L1,
and a 390nH value places that frequency at 100MHz. Potentiometer
R1 then lets you select a channel by tuning over the FM band of
88MHz to 108MHz. Output power is about -21dBm into 50 (most
countries accept emissions below 10dBm in the FM band). The
home system's left and right audio signals are summed by R3 and
R4, and attenuated by the (optional) potentiometer R2. R2's wiper
signal serves as a volume control by modulating the RF frequency.
Signals above 60mV introduce distortion, so the pot attenuates
down from that level. In the absence of a standard FM radio
antenna, 75cm (30 inches) of wire will suffice as a transmitting
antenna. For best reception, it should be mounted parallel with the
receiving antenna. The IC operates on a single supply voltage in the
range 3V to 5V, but you should regulate the applied voltage to
minimize frequency drift and noise.
