The radio station operates at a fixed frequency of one of the channels in the 27 MHz range with amplitude modulation, has quartz frequency stabilization. Provides a communication range with the same type of radio station up to 2 km in open areas and up to 500 m in the city.

The circuit diagram is shown in the figure. The receiving path is made on two microcircuits A1 (K174PS1) and A2 (K157XA2) according to the scheme with a minimum number of circuits. Switch S1 is shown in the "receive" position. The input signal from the antenna through the switch section S1.1 is fed to the input circuit L1C1 tuned to the frequency of the received channel. The communication coil L2 serves to match the high-resistance unbalanced output of this circuit with the symmetrical low-resistance input of the frequency converter of the A1 microcircuit. The local oscillator is also part of this microcircuit, and it allows using only a quartz resonator as a frequency-setting element without any additional heterodyne coils.

The intermediate frequency is allocated to the mixer load - resistor R1. The role of the selective element is entirely entrusted to the Q2 piezoceramic filter. As a result, the entire receiving path contains only one input circuit. This is very important for a small-sized radio station, since the most labor-intensive and overall element is an inductor with a tuning core. In addition, it is extremely easy to set up.

The IF amplifier, detector and AGC system are made on the A2 - K157XA2 microcircuit, included according to the standard scheme.

From the output of the receiving path, the low-frequency signal through the volume control R7 and the dividing circuit R9C14 enters the input of the ultrasonic frequency converter, made on the K174XA10 chip.

The UZCH input does not switch; when receiving, it receives a signal through R9, and when transmitting through R11 from an electret microphone, which does not receive power when received. And during transmission, power is not supplied to the receiving path (switch section S1.3).

When received from the UHF output, the signal through S1.2 is fed to the dynamic head B1.

During transmission, switch S1 is in the opposite position shown in the diagram. Section S1.3 disconnects power from the receiving path and supplies it to the transmitting path. The transmitter master oscillator is made on the transistor VT1. The oscillation frequency is stabilized by the resonator Q3. In the collector circuit of the transistor, the L3C22 circuit is tuned to the frequency of the resonator. Then, through the coupling coil L4, the RF voltage is supplied to the power amplifier on the transistor VT2. Amplitude modulation is carried out in the emitter circuit of this transistor using a low-frequency transformer T1, which, during transmission, receives a low-frequency signal from the output of the ultrasonic frequency converter on the A2 microcircuit. At the output of the transmitter, a U-shaped circuit C24L5C25 is turned on, followed by an extension coil L6 and an antenna W1.

For winding coils, plastic frames with a diameter of 5 mm are used with carbonyl iron trimmers from armored cores SB-12A. Coil L1 contains 10 watts, L2 is wound on L1, it contains 3 turns. Coil L3 contains 9 turns, and L4 is wound on top of it, it contains 5 turns. These coils are wound with PEV-0,31 wire. The L5 coil contains 5 turns of PEV-0,43 wire, the L6 coil contains 15 turns of PEV-0,31. Choke DL1 - ready, DPM 0,1 at 120 μH.

Quartz resonator Q1 at 27,12 MHz, 02 at 26,655 MHz. Piezoceramic filter at 465 kHz. Transformer T1 is an output transformer from the old Selga-405 receiver, it has a small-sized W-shaped core. Its winding 1 contains 300-500 turns of PEV 0,1, winding 2 - 50-100 turns of PEV0.2.

Antenna - telescopic from a radio receiver with a VHF band.

Electret microphone MKE-3. Switch S1 - P2K without fixation. Dynamic head 0.2GD-1, or another small-sized coil with a resistance of 6-10 ohms.

The power of the radio station is 0,25 W., the sensitivity of the receiver is 5 μV / m, the current consumption during transmission is not more than 120 mA, while receiving is not more than 18 mA. Other parameters were not measured.

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

Petgugu Global cat litter 15.04.2024

Taking care of pets can often be a challenge, especially when it comes to keeping your home clean. A new interesting solution from the Petgugu Global startup has been presented, which will make life easier for cat owners and help them keep their home perfectly clean and tidy. Startup Petgugu Global has unveiled a unique cat toilet that can automatically flush feces, keeping your home clean and fresh. This innovative device is equipped with various smart sensors that monitor your pet's toilet activity and activate to automatically clean after use. The device connects to the sewer system and ensures efficient waste removal without the need for intervention from the owner. Additionally, the toilet has a large flushable storage capacity, making it ideal for multi-cat households. The Petgugu cat litter bowl is designed for use with water-soluble litters and offers a range of additional ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>

Elephants in the mirror 08.03.2007

Elephants have joined humans, apes and dolphins: they too recognize themselves in the mirror. Experiments conducted with a specially made huge mirror at the Bronx Zoo in New York showed that elephants are able to recognize themselves in the mirror.

When the mirror was placed in the elephant house, the animals first tried to look behind it - were their brothers hiding there? Then they began to check whether the reflection exactly copies their actions. And then they even began to examine the contents of their mouths in the mirror. When they painted a white cross over their right eye, one of the three elephants began to look at this badge in the mirror, but the rest were not interested.
