Circuits Designed by Dave Johnson, P.E. :

Modulated light receiver circuit - The circuit uses a very inexpensive C-MOS IC that is connected to a small photodiode.  Using a unique inductive feedback network, the circuit provides high sensitivity under high ambient light conditions.  It is a great circuit when you want to extend the range of an optical remote control transmitter. . . Circuit by David A. Johnson P.E.-June, 2000

Magnetic loop antenna for 160 to 15m -  amateur radio construction projects.   __ Designed by Peter Parker

Magnetic loop antenna for 40 to 17m local & DX contacts from tight spaces -  amateur radio construction projects.   __ Designed by Peter Parker

Matchbox Radio -  Building little radios into matchboxes is a traditional hobby pursuit and reader Augustin from Romania inspired me to try my hand at it.  For my matchbox receiver, I chose my two-transistor reflex receiver with a couple of modifications __  Contact:  Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Maxitronix MX801F FM Radio Kit  -  Three transistor FM receiver needed modifications.  Also relevant to the MX901AF and MX901F kits __ Contact blehack @ yahoo dot com

Meck FM Converter -  Fremodyne tuner made to be used with the audio section of an existing AM receiverThe safety issues with this set were a bit of a surprise __ Contact blehack @ yahoo dot com

Medium Wave Active Antenna -  This circuit is designed to amplify the input from a telescopic whip antenna.  The preamplifier is designed to cover the medium waveband from about 550Khz to 1650Khz.  The tuning voltage is supplied via RV2, a 10k potentiometer connected to the 12 Volt power supply __ Designed by David Sayles

Medium Wave DX Receiver -  The photo opposite shows what you can do with a Lazy Susan and a 16" Embroidery Hoop!  This loop antennae work very well on the Medium Wave band, providing good gain, directivity and noise rejection.   __ Designed by Duncan from Wellington, New Zealand

Micro Spy with FETs -  Circuit and notes only, no circuit description given.   __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Micro Spy with TTL -  This circuit is old (70's) but since the 74LS13 is from the regular 74xx series and easy to obtain, I decided to keep the circuit in place until components are no longer available.  Not much to tell here.  Performance is based on the 74LS13, a 'Dual 4-input Positive-Nand Schmitt Trigger'.  This circuit was experimental and so has no real purpose other than tinkering.   __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Micro Spy with USW -  Circuit and notes only, no circuit description given.   __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Micropower AM Band radio station -  The picture to the left is a high quality radio transmitter for the A.  M.  broadcast band.  The transmitter legally operates with "micro-power" and will not set any distance records but, unlike simpler designs, the frequency stays put and the fidelity is excellent.  Although the schematic looks somewhat complex, the circuitry is easy to build and adjust for experimenters with a little "tweaking" experience.  A simple output meter confirms proper signal level and checks antenna tuning while "on the air".  Add an audio mixer, tape recorder, and perhaps a CD player and have a near-professional micro-power station.   __  Contact:  Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Modern Homodyne (Simple Circuit but great!) -  Last winter I have constructed a simple receiver, called the “Modern Homodyne”. Full information is provided in two articles by G.W.Short which were published in The Radio Constructor (March 1972, p.492-495, and April 1972, p.552-557)  __ Designed by Aren van Waarde

Morse Adaptor for your VHF/UHF FM rig -  Everyone knows that the best way to practice Morse is to use it on the air.  But how do you send Morse if you don’t have a multimode HF or VHF transceiver?Well, you could hold a microphone up to a code practice oscillator, and hold the PTT down while pressing the key, but it’s very clumsy, and the transmitted tone is likely to be harsh.  Clearly something better is needed.   __ Designed by Peter Parker

MPF102 FM Receiver -  An FM regenerative receiver using a single FET and one audio amplifier IC .   __ Designed by Andy Collison

MPF102 Receiver -  Schematic only.   __ Designed by Patrick

MRX 40 Mini Receiver -  After exploring very low power (QRPp) communication by building a 40 meter Micronaut CW transmitter, 1 I took on the challenge of constructing a tiny 40 meter companion receiver.  Not only did I think the receiver would complement the Micronaut, I thought it might also have potential as a kit project for my hometown group, the CQRP (Columbus, Ohio, QRP) Club.  The final push to action came from the discovery that there were 93 licensed amateurs in my neighborhood ZiP code __ Designed by Steve Bornstein, K8IDN

Musical Ladybug -  Our son Henk is fond of small animals - bees, bugs, waterbugs, frogs, hedgehogs, newts, fishes and toads.  They are caught in the gardens and ponds around our house and neatly stored in vessels, jars and containers for careful study.  After a few days of confinement they are returned to their natural environment (and in unhappy cases, caught again within a few days).  So when we decided to give Henk a radio for his sixth birthday, it could not be a dull grey portable from Radio Shack.  For this special occasion we designed the one and only musical ladybug.   __ Designed by Aren van Waarde
