schematic diagram is the circuit of VHF pre-amplifier for FM broadcasting (frequency 88MHz-108MHz, band II)
The circuit is working with two 2N3819 FET's in cascode configuration. The lower FET works in common source mode, while the upper FET, works in common gate, realising full high frequency gain. The bottom FET is adjustable allowing a peak for a particular station.
The FET 2N3819 is designed for RF amplifier and mixer applications operating up to 450MHz, and for analog switching requiring low capacitance.
- L1 4 turns of 18swg air spaced with a 1 cm diameter, the tap is one turn up from earth end...
- L2 4 turns of 18swg air spaced with 1 cm diameter. The coupling coil is 1 turn interwound from the supply end. Enamel coated wire must be used.
