or frequency changes because of metal in the field of Ll, the change will show as an increase or decrease in frequency, which produces a charge in the meter reading. The ceramic filter FILT1 produces a selective bandpass that yields this effect. Ll can be a 4" diameter coil wound on a suitable plastic form. About 10 turns of #26 wire are required. Use a frequency counter to adjust Ll and verify that Ql is operating on or near 455 kHz.
