This package contains the schematic for an FM transmitter with 3 to 3.5 W output power, and can be used between 90 and 110 Mhz. Although the stability Although the stability isn't so bad, a PLL can be used on this circuit. This is a circuit that I've build a few years ago for a friend, who used it in combination with the BLY88 amplifier to obtain 20 W output power (for that schematic, get the LINBLY88.EXE file). From the notes that I made at the original schematic, it worked fine with a SWR of 1 : 1.05 (quite normal at my place with my antenna). He didn't use it for stereo broadcasting, but that shouldn't be a problem. BTW: I'm sorry about the mess my OrCAD Annotate made of the component numbers. 2) Components/Hints I don't have a PCB-layout for it, but as I remember I've made it on a normal RF-testing breadboard (with one side copper). Make some connections between the two sides. Build the transmitter in a RF-proof casing, use good connectors and cable, make a shielding between the different stages, and be aware of all the other RF-rules of building. Q1 and Q5 should be cooled with a heatsink. The case-pin of Q4 should be grounded. Adjustments: C24 is for the frequency adjustment. The other trimmers must be adjusted to maximum output power with minimum SWR and input current.
