5 Watt FM Amplifier
5 Watt FM Amplifier
This design is a 2 stage amplifier that has about 17db of gain, suitable for an input of 50 to 100 MW. Its basically a
Veronica 5 watt vco transmitter, without the vco. The transistors are a 2N4427 and a MRF237. Output power is 2.5 to 5
watts, depending on input drive and dc voltage. At 13.7 vdc with 50 MW of drive, the output was 2.5 watts. The
maximum dc voltage recommended is about 15-16 volts.
The unit is constructed with copper clad board, a large piece is used as the construction surface and is mounted into a
case. Other board material is cut into small pads, then glued to the construction surface for part connections. A
heatsink is needed for the both transistors, a small "top hat" style will work for TR1 but TR2 requires a larger heatsink
thats attached to the case. This is made from aluminum L stock, a 3/8" hole and a slot is made for TR2 to fit snuggly in.
Up to 7-8 watts output is possible with this amp, but for continious duty only 5 watts maximum output is recommended.
A fan is required and it is mouted on the case lid, with holes drilled for ventilation. The chokes H1, H2 and H3 are 5 turns
of 30 awg wire on a ferite bead and choke H4 is a 330 ohm 1/2 watt resistor with 14 turns of 30 awg with a ferite bead
on each end. Ferite beads need to be of type 43 material. The coils L1, L2 and L3 are made of 18 awg tinned wire. A
1.5 amp 3ag fuse is part of the dc power cord assembly. I used BNC coax connectors for input and output, however
SO-239 or F type connectors would be fine too.
Tune up and use: In order to make the amplifier operate properly, it needs to be tuned. To start, set all the trimmer
capacitors to middle position, connect the rf out to a wattmeter/dummy antenna, apply power and drive from the
exciter then tune for maximum output. Limit your drive to 100 MW maximum. If you can measure the amplifier
transistor's current, then adjust for minimum current at maximum rf out. This unit has no swr protection and requires a
50 ohm antenna, do not operate the amplifier without a proper load.

Build your own LC Meter and start making your own coils and inductors. This LC Meter allows
to measure incredibly small inductances making it perfect tool for making all types of RF coils.
LC Meter can measure inductances starting from 10nH - 1000nH, 1uH - 1000uH, 1mH - 100mH
and capacitances from 0.1pF up to 900nF. The circuit includes an auto ranging and "Zero Out"
function to make sure the readings are as accurate as possible
