Doh! I should have thought of that! I'll have a look.
...or the "Technical Topics" book by Pat Hawker.
Actually, thinking about that I may have a copy somewhere in my loft - I took the RAE many years ago but never did anything with it.
You might also try to make contact with your local Radio Club as one or more members will, I am sure, be happy to help. Theyb may also lend you suitable books from which you could copy designs.
I've been meaning to make contact with them for some time for many reasons, I know a couple of members quite well (I'll be playing guitar with one of them tonight!) but both are operators rather than into nitty-gritty electronics people. Other than that it is the usual question of finding spare time!
From what you say, I would say that a design for a Local Oscillator in a superhet receiver might be a good bet.
Exactly my thoughts. I have been looking around to see if anyone makes cheap superhet kit-built radios that I could modify, but couldn't find any. Then decided it was about time I stopped being scared of building RF circuits and had a go myself...
If you want to talk it over, open up yourself to Private Messages and I will, there, give you my telephone number and you can call me.
Many thanks. If I don't get anywhere with the above I'll take you up on that.
