The proposed antenna amplifier is designed to amplify the signals of broadcasting and television stations in the meter range.

  • Bandwidth, MHz, with signal attenuation at the edges of the range of 3 dB..........50...350
  • Self-noise level, dB .......... 3,5
  • Input impedance, Ohm..........75
  • Rated load resistance. Ohm.........75
  • Voltage gain with an input signal of 5 μV, dB, at a frequency of MHz: 230..........41

Schematic diagram of the antenna amplifier is shown in the figure. It is assembled on four transistors connected according to a common emitter circuit. A feature of the amplifier is the use of inductors as collector loads of transistors VT2-VT4, which reduced the blockage of the amplitude-frequency characteristic (AFC) of the amplifier at higher frequencies.

Zener diode VD1 type D814A. The amplifier remains operational when the supply voltage drops to 4 V. In this case, the gain in the entire frequency range decreases to 36 dB. To operate the amplifier at a low supply voltage, the D814A zener diode must be replaced with a KS139A or KS147A. The current drawn from the power supply will drop to 15 mA in this case.

The amplifier is mounted on four boards with dimensions of 25x40 mm made of double-sided foil fiberglass 2 mm thick. One side of the board is used as a screen. The boards are installed in rectangular recesses of the brass case and are separated from each other by shielding partitions soldered directly to the foil surface of the boards.

Coils L1, L2, L4 contain 2,5 each, and L3 - 4 turns of PEL 1,0 wire. The winding diameter of coils L1-L3 is 12, and L4 is 20 mm. Winding step - 8 mm.

The establishment of an antenna amplifier begins with the setting of the DC transistor modes in accordance with those indicated on its diagram. Then proceed to the adjustment of the frequency response. To do this, you can use the X1-19A, X1-1, or GKCH devices of any type.

The selected frequency range is set on the GKCH at the maximum swing band. A voltage of 5 μV is applied to the input of the amplifier (such a signal corresponds to an attenuation of 1 dB on the X19-50A device). Setting up the amplifier is reduced to selecting the locations of the taps from the coils L1-L4 until the required bandwidth is obtained. The frequency response can also be taken using a calibrated standard signal generator and a tube voltmeter, by shunting the latter with a 75 ohm resistor.

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. ... >>

Gamma-ray telescope in the Canary Islands 08.06.2004

A new gamma-ray telescope, designed by scientists from Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and Spain, went into operation on the island of Palma (Canary Islands).

The telescope registers gamma-ray fluxes from space not directly, but by Cherenkov radiation, which gamma particles generate in the upper atmosphere. A 234-square-meter swivel mirror made of carbon fiber and aluminum captures the flashes that occur at altitudes of 10-20 kilometers, when gamma rays strike air atoms and create charged particles rushing towards the Earth.

The rays of light reflected by the mirror are concentrated on a camera of 577 highly sensitive sensors. The computer, analyzing the data from the camera, calculates the trajectory of the initial beam of gamma rays. This will allow physicists to understand the nature of radiation sources. The telescope can look into the depths of the universe for eight billion light years.
