7MHz CW/AM QRP TRANSMITTER
D. PRABAHARAN
The circuit of a 1M&' C 2 3 A M 4+P transmitter descri.ed here can .e used to transmit either C2 or audio fre*uenc!
modulated signal over a 1M&' carrier5
The carrier fre*uenc! oscillator is cr!stal controlled using 1M&' cr!stal in its fundamental mode5 The tan6 circuit
comprises a shortwave oscillator coil which can .e tuned to 1M&' fre*uenc! with the help of 7- gang capacitor VC85
Transistor T9 :with identical tan6 circuit connected at its collector as in case of transistor T8; serves as a power
amplifier5 The +F output from oscillator stage is inductivel! coupled to the power amplifier stage5 The output from power
amplifier is routed via capacitor C< and inductor L< to a half"wave dipole using a 1$"ohm co"a=ial ca.le5 7- gang
capacitor VC< along with inductor L< forms an antenna tuning and matching networ6 .etween the output of power
amplifier stage and coa=ial transmission line for ma=imum power transfer5 Suita.le heatsin6 should .e used for
transistor T95
Tuning ad>ustments ma! .e accomplished using a ?"volt torch .ul.5 Connect the .ul. to the collector of transistor T8
first through a coupling capacitor and tune 7- gang VC8 for ma=imum .rilliance5 :,ote@ the .ul. would light according
to intensit! of +F energ!5; Same procedure ma! .e repeated for power amplifier stage and antenna tuning networ6 for
ensuring ma=imum power transfer5
For C2 operationA switch S8 is to .e 6ept on for .!passing the audio driver transformer and Morse 6e! is used for

It is illegal to operate this type of transmitter without valid licence. Those who have interested to obtain the licence please
come in contact with any ham radio operator in hisher viscinity....thanks
