In flash of inspiration i remembered my generator feed around 350 meter of overhead lines between house and shed and a good ground peg . signal booming in, interference largely swamped by signal and considerably more choice of content. ummm hmmmm must remember to disconnect before i start the generator again (seldom used)
Hi Richard Built the same Silicon Chip AM Transmitter, can't for the life of me to get it going properly. Did you use parts from Jaycar ? I've checked all the parts a number of times, all appear correct. If you have some tips I would appreciate a few pointers !! Cheers
Hi Roy, I purchased the PCB direct from "Silicon Chip", had it mailed to a relative in Melbourne, then he posted it to me in NZ, cheaper than "Silicon Chip" mailing it direct. I already had a few MC1496 Chip's as that was used in the Theremin and purchased what I didn't have from Jaycar. I don't recall any problems, I'm just looking at my notes, I did change the series resistor values on the input voltage divider from 10K to 1K5 and 10K to 1K and built my own inboard power supply. It does perform very well, so I hope you can work out what is wrong with yours.
