Beacon-transmitter

  
This transmitter can be used for transmitter hunts, for remote key finding, or for radio telemetry in model rockets. It can be tuned to the two meter band or other VHF bands by charging Cl and Ll. 11 is four turns of #20 enameled wire airwound, 0.25 inch in diameter (use a drill bit), 0.2 inch long, centertapped. The antenna can be 18 inches of any type of wire. IC2 functions as an audio oscillator that is turned on and off by IC1 about once per second.
