In a previous post, I made one transistor FM Transmitter that is also very nice and easy to make. This is just another one,  two transistor FM transmitters. It has two stages. The first stage amplifies the audio signal, generating a carrier signal using an oscillating, and the second stage modulates the carrier signal with the amplified audio signal. The amplification is done by an amplifier, whereas the modulation and carrier signal generation is done by a variable frequency oscillator circuit. Frequency can be set at anywhere between the FM frequency range from 88MHz to 108MHz. The power of the FM signal from the oscillator is then amplified using a power amplifier to produce a low impedance output, matching that with the antenna.

PCB For circuit


  • The circuit can be powered from anything between 6 to 12V DC.
  • Noise can be eliminated with the use of the battery.
  • If you are going with a battery eliminator, then it must be well-filtered and regulated.
  • The antenna can be a 1m copper wire.
  • L1 can be constructed by making 4 turns of 1mm enameled copper wire on a 10mm diameter plastic former.
  • Most of the components required for this circuit can be taken from old circuits.
  • The range can be increased with a high antenna and power full battery.
  • A list of all components is also given on the circuit diagram.

Disadvantages of FM Transmitter Circuit

  • In the above FM Transmitter Circuit, there is a large wider channel needed.
  • With the Circuit, the transmitter as well as the receiver tends to become more difficult.
  • The received signal gets poor quality as there interference occurs in the medium.
  • The above circuit is not good enough for high-power FM transmitter circuit purposes.
