RF Power Meter
RF Power Meter for QRPers
Input needs only several mWatts (e.g. BF900) -> 300 mWatts OUT. This schematic is a often used buffer. It's easy to build, clean and cheap. When you want even more power, you can replace the 2N2219a by a 2N4427 or 2N3553. You can lower the output by adding a little resistor (10..47 Ohm 1/2W) in the emitter line of the 2N2219a.
SAA1057 PLL Synthesized FM Transmitter
The functioning of all is provided by a microcontroller from MICROCHIP "PIC16F84" which provides support for buttons, LCD 2 lines of 16 characters and the circuit pll "SAA1057.
The VCO is entrusted to the transistor Q8 associate of his two diodes varicaps "BB109, a floor buffer Q7 separates the VHF signal obtained in two ways, on the one hand to Q9 to enslave loop phase and on the other hand to the Q5 and Q6 together which takes care to amplify the signal before attacking Q11, a "BFR96" which plays the role of HF switch via a timer "NE555" which receives information from the push and "SAA1057" ensuring HF cutoff in the event of failure of a locking or unlocking of the pll.
Sensitive FM Transmitter Bug
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.
Simple AM Transmitter
There are not many AM transmitters that are easier to build than this one because the inductor is not tapped and has a single winding. There is no need to wind the inductor as it is a readily available RF choke. To make the circuit as small as possible, the conventional tuning capacitor has been dispensed with and fixed 220pF capacitors used instead. To tune it to a particular frequency, reduce one or both of the 220pF capacitors to raise the frequency or add capacitance in parallel to lower the frequency. Q1 is biased with a 1MO resistor to give a high input impedance and this allows the use of a crystal ear piece as a low cost microphone.
Simple Audio FM Transmitter
FM transmitters can be complicated to build, but not this one itís about the easiest you can possibly make. And though the science of radio is well understood, thereís a magical, emotional quality about it that we donít often stop to appreciate. You will not forget the first time you pick up a transmission broadcast from a device you soldered together, yourself, from a few bits of copper, carbon, plastic, and wire.
Simple Coil Less FM Transmitter
For months Iíve been looking for a simple FM BUG project, the ones online require inductors which you either have to acquire or build, if you donít have a LCR meter it becomes rather hard to get the circuit working, specially if youíre a beginner without an oscilloscope! Ė Sometimes they donít even tell you which inductance is required and you have to calculate an estimate, which is the main reason why many high frequency RF projects fail in the first place. This circuit on the other hand performs pretty well, even if youíre manipulating the board or touching the coax it will stay within the tuned frequency (unless you touch the transistor or timing capacitor!).
Simple FM Transmitter
Simple FM transmitter with a single transistor. 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.
Simple FM Transmitter
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 penetrate over three floors of an apartment building and go over 300 meters in the open air. 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 this FM Tx is below
the legal limits of many countries (eg, USA and Australia). However, some countries may ban ALL wireless transmissions without a license. It is the responsibility of the builder to check the legal requirements for the operation of this circuit and to obey them.
