let it cool and then file or sand-paper the tip to clean it before attempting to tin it again. Turn the iron off. If the solder tends to "ball up" or not stick to the tip. Check the connection.Keep the soldering iron tip clean. This is called tinning the soldering iron tip. RESISTOR allow it to flow around the connection. 5 4 . As the solder begins to melt.Use the right type of soldering iron. The use of any other type of solder (acid core. Wipe it often on a wet sponge or cloth. A poor solder connection can cause the unit to work poorly or not at all. Apply solder to the lead on the side opposite the soldering iron tip. Press it against the circuit board and bend the leads outward slightly to hold it in place. A 22 to 25 watt pencil type with a fine tip will work best. it needs to be cleaned and tinned again.

Apply solder to the tip to give it a wet look. Resistors . such as the component lead and the circuit track.Form the resistor leads as shown so they fit the circuit board. It is easy to make a good solder joint if you follow a few simple rules: . install all of the resistors as shown in the assembly diagram. etc. . Hold the board so that the clippings do not fly toward your eyes.Position all parts as shown in the assembly diagram of Figure 2. Install each resistor on the side of the circuit board opposite the circuit track as shown. Keep all leads as short as possible.Soldering is one of the most important operations you will perform while assembling this project. Using this method.Soldering . A good solder joint forms an electrical connection between the parts. Solder the resistor in place as follows: Hold the soldering iron tip against the lead and the circuit track.Always use rosin core.) will void your warranty and we will not service your unit Parts Placement . paste solder. Install all parts and wires on the side of the circuit board opposite the circuit tracks. It should appear smooth and shinny. radio-type solder (60:40 tin lead content) for all the soldering on this unit. . Remove the solder and the iron from the connection and cut off the excess leads.

Check off when you finish: SATTERV SNAP Install the variable capacitor. However. Strip and tin (pre-solder) the ends of the coil. it is recommended that you keep the antenna as short as possible while still meeting your needs to avoid exceeding the federally allowed power level for experimenters. on the component side of the circuit board and solder as shown in the assembly diagram. Note that several tuning points of C5 may affect your receiver hut only the strongest point is correct. It may help to increase the distance between the transmitter and receiver to 10 to 15 feet. The longest range achieved is with an antenna that is one quarter the wave length (approximately 30 inches).Install the ceramic disc capacitors. lnstall the microphone on the component side of the circuit board. 24 to 26 insulated stranded wire). This can cause the transmitter to stop oscillating. If your antenna is made too long. use a 30 inch antenna wire (No. ( )Q1 ( )Q2 Q3( ) Inductors .Install the transistors as shown in the Assembly Diagram. Set a nearby FM receiver to approximately 108 MHz and adjust C5 until you hear the squeal of audio feedback or until the background noise is blanked out.Capacitors . The others will be weak and unstable. Use a non-metallic tuning tool and tune C5 slowly and carefully since it is a very sensitive adjustment and will require patience to set it right on the desired frequency. as shown in the assembly diagram. similar to the way the resistors were installed. the electrolytic capacitor. Clip off the excess leads and check off C5 when you finish: ( )C5 Transistors . CAUTION! Install C2 with the correct polarity as shown in the assembly diagram. 22 enameled solid wire on a 5/32 drill bit. Solder each capacitor in place and clip off the excess leads. you may exceed the maximum output power for the transmitter. Solder and clip off the excess leads. Solder and clip off excess leads. For maximum range. as shown in the Assembly Diagram. CAUTION! Don't make the antenna any longer than is required to meet the range requirements you need.
(5) Make sure all diodes have been installed with the correct polarity. or shorts exist. Most problems are caused by poor soldering resulting in poor connections or short circuits. (2) Check the transistors for proper installation. check and make sure that all parts are properly located and check all solder connections. splashes. . IN CASE OF TROUBLE (1) Check each solder connection. (3) Check each resistor and capacitor value carefully. The FCC frowns on any FM transmitter with a range of much more than a few hundred feet. IMPORTANT There are two legal considerations you should know. (4) Be sure all wires and leads installed on the circuit board have been trimmed as close to the board as possible. Problems .CAUTION! DO NOT TUNE THE UNIT ABOVE 108 MHz IF YOU LIVE NEAR AN AIRPORT OR AN AIR TRAFFIC LANE. Make sure the correct value has been installed. Make sure the solder is smooth and that no solder bridges. It is also illegal to use any device to listen to or bug any conversation without the consent of all parties involved.If you can't get your unit to work at all.
