FM transmitter Click here for the circuit diagram
Colpitts oscillator. Its frequency
depends on the capacitance of the vary cap diode. The center frequency is changed
by varying the biasing voltage of the vary cap through the 47K pot. You can
use a 75cm telescopic antenna or simply a length of hook-up wire. Mine worked
fine with a 6cm hook-up wire and gave a range of 100m with a good FM receiver.
The approx. cost of the circuit is around Rs.35
Coil Details (Print on the PCB itself)
The coil shown below can be constructed on the PCB itself
as PCB track. Just transfer the dimensions on a copper board and etch it. If
the 1mm spacing is difficult use a sharp blade to remove unwanted copper.
You can also use a copper wire and construct a square spiral of the dimensions
shown below. Please note that a small deviation from the given dimensions is
Note: You can even try a coil made of 18SWG copper wire
of 5 turns and 5mm dia with air core. The center tap can then be taken
at the 2nd or 3rd turn.( I have'nt tried it tell me if it works well)
