That small circuit transmitter it is ideal for ready espionage for strip from radio Fm or receiver of VHF. Of course the recreational purpose also exists and the children will adore to have a transmitter that allows to speak for a radio FM placed at distant place and like this pretend the secret agent.

Powerful microtransmitter that can cover 3km range. To amplify the signal, a 2N3866A transistor is used that can provide up to 1W with gain > 10dB (24Volt). In our case the output power is about 100mW depending on the input power of 10mW and 9V battery power supply. The transistor Q1 must be mounted with a heatsink, the heatsink must have small dimensions (cylindrical) in order not to increase the parasitic capacitance. The trimmer R2 serves to adjust the bias of the transistor, start with the trimmer fully open and close by measuring the current absorbed by the 9V, in my case you get 100mW at the output with a current of 50mA not increase this value as you only increase the absorption by heating the transistor without increasing output power, because the input power is too low. Clearly the 9V battery will be able to provide 50mA only for a few hours, if necessary have greater autonomy should be used a larger battery, but it is no longer a bug but simply an FM transmitter.

This tiny 88-108Mhz FM transmitter bug measures just 10mm x 17mm in size and as you can see in the photos the biggest components are just the microphone and the battery. You can use a small microphone from an older cell phones, they are small in size and have an excellent sensitivity. For an effective power supply the 9V battery (Duracell) is excellent and allows several hours of battery life, but if you want to have a smaller size it is better to use 2 or 3 lithium cells like the 2032 used in PCs. The circuit works well from 3 to 12V, the maximum range is obtained with 12V and a piece of 40-60cm cable as an antenna.

In the mid 1970s large numbers of small FM transmitters, operating in the FM radio broadcast band (88-108 MHz) appeared on the market. It started with a self-build kit from the Danish manufacturer Jostykit that allowed everyone to build a small FM transmitter for a few Euros. Such transmitters generally consist of a single transistor oscillator with a simple resonance circuit, sometimes with an extra transistor that is used as audio pre-amplifier. The image shows a few examples that were available in European electronics shops in the mid 1970s. The transmitter shown here was built in the mid-1970s and measures just 1 x 2 cm. When properly built, it may have a range of several kilometers.
