3-3.5 Watt FM Transmitter

This is the schematic for an FM transmitter with 3 to 3.5 W output
power that can be used between 90 and 110 MHz. Although the stability
isn’t so bad, a PLL can be used on this circuit.

This is a circuit that I’ve build a few years ago for a friend, who
used it in combination with the BLY88 amplifier to obtain 20 W output
power. From the notes that I made at the original schematic, it worked
fine with a SWR of 1 : 1.05 (quite normal at my place with my antenna).



This is the schematic of the 3W FM Transmitter
