The project I am following is from the 'Homebrew' column in Radcom ( april 2007) by Ed, EI9GQ.
Pictured below is the local oscillator which produces 116Mhz from a 38.6666 Mhz crystal.
This is the smaller Mk2 version.
|MK2 Local Oscillator|
The local oscillator is a common collector Colpitts crystal oscillator.This feeds a dual-gate Mosfet buffer amplifier (BF966).
Next stage is the pre-amp and receive down converter, this will allow RX only at this stage.
