5 tubes SSB QRP Transceiver for 20m Ham band -  A 5 tubes SSB QRP Transceiver for 20m Ham band - The complete schematic shown here includes the supply section, but omits the low-voltage part needed to drive the relays coils.  I'veused a voltage doubler from the 6.3VAC of the tube heaters because I chose 12V relays.   __ Designed by Andrea  IW9HJV and Johnny  IW9ARO

5 Watt 80 Meter QRP CW Transceiver -  A great deal of interest has been generated by my previous design articles, so I decided to go to work on a full blown transceiver design.  After several months of work, the ROSE-80 transceiver was born.  This design boasts the following features __ Designed by Radio Amateur Society of Norwich

5 Watt FM Amplifier -  This design is a 2 stage amplifier that has about 17db of gain, suitable for an input of 50 to 100 MW.  its basically a Veronica 5 watt vco transmitter, without the vco.  The transistors are a 2N4427 and a MRF237.  Output power is 2.5 to 5 watts, depending on input drive and dc voltage.  .__ 

5 Watt UHF TV Amplifier -  This small circuit is a Linear amplifier for driving small UHF TV transmitters.  its gain is 7dB and can amplify a signal between 450-800 MHz.  You can drive the circuit with 1 to 1, 5 Watts signal.  Better use double layer PCB with the second layer connected to earth.  Use a stabilized power supply 25 volts and at least 5Amps.  The transistor case is the SOT-122A and be careful because the transistor is very toxic for your health.  Tuning can be achieved turning the two variable capacitors.  Do not forget to use heat sink for both transistors, specially for the BLW89 and it would be better if you place a small fan as well.__ 

5 Watts FM RF Amplifier -  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.  .__ 

50 Hz controlled 10 MHz refferance with PIC16 & LCD display -  My Radio amateur callsign is OZ2CPU.  I like to use Atmel AVR Atmega PIC 16 PIC 16F876 PIC 16F84.  Most electronics easy made for the novice and something is for the more experienced.   __ Designed by Thomas Scherrer OZ2CPU

50 MHz to 10 MHz receive converter -  This is a six metre version of the two metre converter on my web page.  I used 3SK45 MOSFETs for Q1 and Q2.   __ Designed by EI9GQ homebrew radio

50 MHz to 146 MHz Converter -  amateur radio construction projects.   __ Designed by Peter Parker

500 kHz to 3 GHz LED Field-Strength Meter -  Schematic only __ Designed by va3iul

500mW HF Linear Amplifier -  his project was a particular surprise for me in that the BC547 (equiv 2N2222) can be used to build a 500mW linear amplifer covering the entire HF band with excelent spectral purity and no neutralising at all.  Ugly-bug construction was used but I dare say that the good results are partly to do with the method of construction. __ Designed by Harry Lythall-SM0VPO

50MHz Converter -  50 MHz to 10 MHz receive converter __ Designed by EI9GQ homebrew radio

50MHz converter project based on a NE602/SA602/NE612 -  This is a very sensitive 50Mc converter allowing you to receive the entire "Magic Band" (50Mc  52Mc) on your general coverage receiver (28Mc  30Mc).  it receives all types of modulated transmissions.  it all depends on the receiver used.  I'vetested this project on a allmode Yaesu FRG-100 receiver.  Within certain limits you can change the output frequency to suit your needs.  The converter is very stable, low nois, sensitive and low on power consumption and can be compared to many commercial 50Mc receivers.   __ Designed by Guy Roels ON6MU

50MHz power Amplifier -  Schematic only, no circuit description __ Designed by JH0WJF

50O Load & Power Meter -  A 50Ω dummy load is a simple but crucial piece of test equipment.  Not to perform tests on its own, but to provide a good testing environment.  A common test is output power of a transmitter, or a stage within a transmitter.  At QRP power levels of 5 watts or less, it becomes very practical to combine a dummy load and power meter into a terminating power meter __ Designed by Bob Cromwell

555 Time-Difference-Of-Arrival RDF UNIT -  This T.D.O. A.  RDF set is built on a Radio-Shack experimenters board.  it uses a single 555 timer wired to produce a square wave output at about 500 Hz.1N4007 power ectifier diodes were used in place of PIN diodes to switch between two dipole antennas at a 500 Hz rate.  if you substitute another lower voltage power rectifier,  __ Designed by Joe Leggio WB2HOL

56K RF Modem -  This is a prototype of the WA4DSY 56KB RF modem.  it is intended for use on amateur packet radio networks.  The modem generates RF in the 28 to 30 mhz range and requires and linear transverter to convert the signal to a UHF or microwave ham band.  The digital interface is synchronous serial.  The modem supplies TX and RX clocks.  For more details see the various links below.   __ Designed by Dale Heatherington's Ham Radio, Electronics and Robotics Web Site

5Mhz Broad Band  Optical Fiber Receiver -  This circuit is a simple broad band light detector that uses a very inexpensive IC and a PIN photodiode that is packaged for use with plastic optical fibers.  it has a bandwidth from 1KHz to over 5MHz.  it is great for experimenting with various modulated. . .

6 x 6 Loop Antenna -  This new loop antenna is his best design yet and I am proud to be the first to present his work.  it uses one, six foot square, six turn loop, and is aperiodic in nature, covering the frequency range 50KHz, 5000KHz __ Designed by Graham Maynard

60W Linear Amplifier -  The 60 Watt linear amplifier is simple all solid state circuit using power MOSFET iRF840.  The iRF series of power transistors are available in various voltage and power ratings.  A single iRF840 can handle maximum power output of 125 watts.  Since these transistors are used in inverters and smps they are easily available for around Rs: 20/- __ Designed by Mohamed Agha

6M receive converter -  This is a six metre version of the two metre converter on my web page.  I used 3SK45 MOSFETs for Q1 and Q2.   __ Designed by EI9GQ homebrew radio

70-120MHz FM Receiver -  This simple one chip FM receiver / TV tuner will allow you to receive frequencies from 70 up to 120MHz.  With this small receiver it is possible to pickup TV stations, entire 88, 108MHz FM band, aircraft conversation and many other private transmissions__

80m SSB & CW QRP superhet transceiver -  The 80m SSB & CW transceiver an already proven concept used in ATLAS amateur transistorised transceivers from 70's.  The "two-mixer + 1 XTAL filter" design uses the 1st mixer as front-end mixer on receive as well as SSB modulator on transmit.  The second mixer is used as SSB product detector on receive and as a heterodyne mixer on transmit.  VFO and BFO are cross-switched between both mixers with a PIN diode matrix.  Between 1st mixer's output and 2nd mixer's input a crystal filter is placed, followed by an AGC PIN attenuator __ Designed by Aleksander Stare

80Watt HF one transistor Amplifier -  This PA is a homemade copy of the famous Zetagi B150, I got a box and PL sockets from an old dead B-150
The PCB was so tired and burned so I had to construct it using no PCB at all..
At 4 Watt input I have 60 Watt out, 6 W in gives 80 W out. __ Designed by Thomas Scherrer OZ2CPU

81 Meter CW ARDF Receiver -  This page contains updates, feedback and circuit modifications relating to the foxfinder-80 ARDF receiver article that appeared in the November, 2000 issue of 73's amateur radio today.  The design data posted at this site reflects the version used at the 2002 championships in Georgia__
