2018-12-09 Selectivity V. Sensitivity

from FB group Building Transistor Radios 2016 Dec 9 Jim Glover An ideal receiver would have a bandpass shaped like a square wave where the bandpass is flat with no attenuation and the attenuation is infinite outside of the passband. In the real world this isn’t possible but any receiver buyer with the money would

2018 Dec 8 Sinclair Book 22 Tested Circuits Using Micro Alloy Transistors

from FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018 Dec 8 Nick Bastian posted the schematic of a Sinclair Micromatic radio. I found the book by Clive Sinclair about the circuits using micro alloy transistors. Germanium transistors and especially micro alloy transistors are no longer made so it’s better to use silicon BJTs instead. Here is the

2018-11-25 One Transistor FM Receiver Schematic Part 1

From FB group Building Transistor Radios Larry Daniel 2018-11-26 This is the original schematic posted by Larry. GM is a gimmick capacitor made of two short lengths of solid hookup wire, twisted together for a few pF capacitance. List of RF Chokes for the ham bands Larry said he used an RCA SK1008, then corrected

2018-11-19 Depth of Loop Antenna

from FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018-11-19 I shared my loop antenna – see photo, and it is somewhat 2 dimensional. The arms are 762mm across but the depth of the windings is only about 35 mm. Compare that to the ferrite loopstick at the other extreme, it’s 10 mm diameter but 100 mm long.

2018-11-07 The 2 Transistor Boy’s Radios

from FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018 Nov 7 I bought some 10 uF, 10 volt MLCC (multilayer ceramic capacitor) capacitors, which do not have the electrolyte so they can’t dry out. They are smaller, too. If they are used for replacements, then radios might last much longer. About the only thing left to go

2018-10-29 Early Transistor Radios And LW Band

from FB group Vintage Transistor Radios 2018-10-29 One may find that some early transistor radios, along with AM, had Long Wave band before they had SW or FM. We should keep in mind that earlier germanium junction transistors had a maximum frequency that was limited to 2 to 4 MHz. The radios could have a

2018-10-18 Admirable Admiral Radio

from FB group Vintage Transistor Radios 2018-10-20 Was it made in the late ’50s? The transistors are early RCA types. These old time radios are about 60 years old and I am amazed and inspired to hear and see that, once the caps have been replaced, they perform as well as the day they were

2018-10-08 Air Band Radio Kit HMOOABRA_4.3 Part 5

from FB group Building Transistor Radios comment 2018-10-08 Bob Johansen Receive frequency? I can’t receive a signal, so the receive frequency is not known. This receiver has no tuned circuit in the RF side of the NE612, other than the bandpass filter made up of the coils on the PCB and their capacitors. The bandpass

2018-10-07 Air Band Radio Kit HMOOABRA_4.3 Part 3

From FB group Building Transistor Radios comment 2018-10-07 Bob Johansen I don’t have a way of calibrating an RF signal level. Back when I worked on Aircraft radios we had General Radio VHF signal generators, attenuators and RF signal strength meters and a Panoramic spectrum analyzer. This would have been a piece of cake to

2018-10-06 Air Band Radio Kit HMOOABRA_4.3 Part 2

Posted to FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018-10-06 First part is here. I noticed that my photo didn’t get added to the photos tab, So I’m trying again to add it. I got a fresh start this Sat. morning. I used another little air band receiver to listen for the LO from this one. I
