HETERODYNE FREQUENCY METER


Posted on Feb 4, 2014

Circuit consists of 1-2 MHz oscillator Q1, untuned mixer X1, and AF beat-note amplifier Q2. C4 is calibrated to read directly in frequency from 1 to 2 MHz, using accurate unmodulated RF signalgenerator. After calibration, unknown RF signal input frequency is fed into meter for zero-beating with harmonics of calibrated oscillator. Magnetic headphone

s plugged into J1 make beat note audible. On second harmonic, dial of C4 covers 2-4 MHz; on twentieth harmonic, coverage is 20-. 40 MHz. L1 is 65 tums No. 28 enamel on 1-inch form, tapped 20 tums from ground. L2 is 10 tums No. 28 enamel closewound around center of L1. -R. P. Turner, "FET Circuits, " Howard W.
