'ere is the circuit of a medium#power AM transmitter that delivers 1&&#1%& m2 of radio fre3uenc" 4!F5 power0
At the heart of the circuit is a cr"stal oscillator0 A 1&M'( cr"stal is used to generate highl" sta,le carrier fre3uenc"0
Audio signal from the condenser mic is amplified ," the amplifier ,uilt around transistors T16 T7 and T80 The amplified
audio signal modulates the !F carrier generated ," the cr"stal oscillator ,uilt around transistor T90 'ere modulation is
done via the power suppl" line0 The amplitude#modulated 4AM5 signal is o,tained at the collector of oscillator transistor
