Aerial Booster Circuit Diagram for Citizens Band Project
Aerial Booster Circuit Diagram for Citizens Band Project - This simple aerial booster circuit design might be an alternate or a hobby project for making such an aerial booster device for the Citizen Band (CB) radio.
Although modem communications equipment mostly operates efficiently on the higher frequency bands (which includes the 27MHz FM Citizens Rand), performance at these frequencies is not all one would desire in many cases, and there is room for improvement.
Aerial booster circuit sample design has preset tuning, although it could be easily modified to have a tuning control if desired.
However, the 27MHz aerial booster circuit is only some 390 kHz wide, and the bandwidth of the amplifier is just about sufficient to give very good results over the entire band if it is peaked at the centre of the band.
