This a build of a well known FM transmitter called Veronica. Transmitter was built on two separate boards. The first board (pictured above) is the Veronica transmitter itself with output power of 600mW when powered by 12V voltage or 1W when powered by 16V voltage. The second board is an RF power amplifier that uses 2SC1971 transistor to amplify Veronica's output signal to around 7 Watts. Although transmitter can be powered with 9-16V voltage, it is recommended that both transmitter and amplifier is powered by 12V voltage as 600mW is an upper limit for driving 2SC1971 transistor.

I had been fascinated with the idea of making simple stereo encoder for building Stereo FM Transmitter. Not that stereo means much to me away from the computer. I use an FM broadcast transmitter to relay the output of my computers to FM radios in the kitchen, the bedroom, the driveway, and out in the garden. Under those circumstances, I find that mono is plenty, whether it is music or radio programs from over the internet, since I am primarily occupied with something else anyway. When on my hands and knees in the garden, all the way up to my elbows in planting a bush, the music really does not seem any more sweet when its stereo. But that did not stop me from being fascinated with the idea of making a stereo encoder. Stereo always seemed like a lot of circuitry and bother for the slight benefit that came with it. That is, until a few weeks ago.

High sensitivity TEA5711 receiver allows the reception of distant stations from over 150 miles (240 km) away. Good selectivity is obtained with narrow bandwidth ceramic filters. AFC automatic frequency control locks on stations for drift-free reception. Stereo separation which depends on signal strength is very apparent on strong signals. And with high quality headphones, the sound is rich with deep base and high treble, for hours of enjoyable stereo music.

Ever wondered how come you can just simply tune in to your favorite FM Radio Channel. Moreover, ever had the curiosity of making your own FM Station on a specific frequency? Well if the answer is Yes to any of those questions then you are at the right place!. We are going to look into making small FM Transmitter for Hobby Purposes with a really basic component guide and components that are readily available off the shelf.

This is my second encounter with LM3886. I was pleased with the sound this chip produced the first time, so I decided to make another amplifier with it. The schematic is based on the schematic in the datasheet of the chip with minor changes. I removed the time delay capacitor connected to MUTE pin, because it’s better to use separate DC protection schematic which has similar functionality. I made the output inductance L1 by winding 15 turns of enameled wire around the resistor R7. The diameter of the wire must be minimum 0.4mm. The whole was wrapped with heat shrink. I used 47uF/63V non polarized capacitor for C2. It can be regular electrolytic capacitor, but it’s better to use non-polarized or bipolar.
