100Khz Low Power Light Receiver - By starving a high speed logic inverter for current, this circuit can produce a sensitive 100KHz light receiver circuit, which is immune to ambient light, but only drawing 100 microamps from a 3 volt supply . . . Hobby Circuit designed by Dave Johnson P.E.-April, 2005

10Mhz to 20Mhz Light Receiver - Light power to volts conversion = APPROX.15mV per microwatt at 850nM. . . Circuit by David Johnson P.E.-July, 2006

175Khz Inductive Pulse Receiver - This circuit is discussed in more detail in the Experimenters Journal.  The receiverís six inch diameter coil detects the ring signal from the above transmitter and use a single NPN transistor to provided enough amplification for the signal to be easily viewed on an oscilloscope. . .

1Khz to Over 70Mhz Light Receiver - This circuit uses one tiny C-MOS inverter IC to form a modulated light receiver with a very fast response.  It is designed around a PIN photo diode that is packaged for use with plastic optical fibers.  It can be used as an optical fiber receiver.  By using the open end of the optical fiber it can "sniff" out any modulated light signals . . .

15M CW Transceiver Design -  I've decided to design a new CW transceiver using some of the same design concepts employed in the highly successful 2N2/40 transceiver.  The design goal of this rig is to provide a 15 meter CW rig that has good performance, while using discrete, readily available components whenever possible, including the venerable 2N2222 transistor, so that the rig can be reproduced in 3rd world countries by ham radio operators of modest means.   __ Designed by Jim Kortge, K8IQY

16 Bit PC Serial Port Receiver CMOS -  This circuit was designed to control a 32 channel Christmas light  show from the PC serial port.  Originally designed with TTL logic, it has been simplified using CMOS circuits to reduce component  count.  it is a fairly simple, reliable circuit that requires only  4 common CMOS chips (for 8 outputs) , an optical isolator, and a  few discrete components. __ Designed by Bill Bowden
