RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

micro UHF transmitter schematic diagram - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I need schematic diagram of micro UHF Long Distance transmitter (bug), frequency near 398Mhz-400Mhz, PLL-quarz controlled, distance near 300m or more, battery life about 5 days, Power: cell tablet CR2032(3V) x 1PCS or CR2450 (3V) Li. SMD design. Could someone help with schematic?
I even find some schematic:

but it requires a some improvement, i.e:

1) Only one AF stage should be enough for this

2) The problem with this setup is that it can't produce wideband FM,
usable at the RM radio band (75KHz swing).

3) The second problem is that to produce UHF signal with this method
you require a large number of multiplying stages which will need to be
aligned (tuned). Alignment can be very touchy mechanically and a fall
on the floor can de-tune the trimmers. It is not a very practical approach,
but it does work.

4) Another problem with a large number of amplifier stages is that
a intermediate signal can feed through to the output stage. This makes
the usual filtering with LPF unpossible (since signal is under the carrier
in frequency).

What I would like is to improve this schematic in view of the mentioned suggestions.
