Both oscillators are built using MPF102 or J310 FETs. The Mixer is BF998 dual gate MOSFET. Audio IC amplifier is LM386 which drives a speaker. I have used a stabilized supply for two oscillators and mixer. U1, a 78L05 is doing this job nicely.

Circuit is being designed on a Single Sided Glass Epoxy Printed Circuit Board. It will be using PCB mounted volume control and a variable capacitor to tune the oscillator. (or varicaps & a pot) However, final design may change. You will have to wind the Loop Coil yourself.
