This is two transistor and two IF transformer based superheterodyne receiver which is designed to receive 13m to 41m bands. With quiet good external antenna this receiver performs similar to commercially available shortwave receiver and its audio quality is in very satisfactory level.
This receiver can be constructing on PCB, breadboard or commonly available veroboard or stripboard. For tuning use Polyvaricon or air variable capacitor. For precision tuning, connect small trimmer capacitor with parallel to variable capacitor’s gangs or use mechanical wheel assembly with the variable capacitor.
This receiver is design to work with 9V regulated power supply and it requires external AF amplifier to drive the headphone or speaker. In our testing we use TDA2050 audio power amplifier with this receiver.
