AM-FM-SW Active Antenna
Active Antenna for AM/FM/SW:
This simple little circuit can be used for AM, FM, and Shortwave(SW).On the shortwave band this active antenna is comparable to a 20 to 30foot wire antenna. It is further more designed to be used on receiversthat use untuned wire antennas, such as inexpensive units and car radios.L1 can be selected for the application. A 470µH coil works on lowerfrequencies and lie in AM, for shortwave try a 20µH coil. This unit canbe powered by a 9 volt alkaline battery. If a power supply is used,bypass the power supply with a 0.04µF capacitor to prevent noisepickup. The antenna used on this circuit is a standard 18-inchtelescoping type, but a thick piece of copper, bus-bar, or piano wire willalso work fine.The heart of this circuit is Q1, a JFET-N-Channel,UHF/VHF amplifier in a TO-92 case.It can be replaced with an NTE451.Output is taken from jack J1 and run to the input on the receiver.
