4.1.3 Fully (not exactly 100%) Superheterodyne AM Receiver No.2
All the receivers we made with NE612 IC were tested in our lab, except the one from the previous project, since we didn't have ZN415 "with us". We found, however, a ZN414 IC, so we tested the receiver from Pic.4.5 with it. The receiver was working great, from the amateur's point of view. He played us for long time, until we didn't require the board to test one of the receivers from previous projects afterwards, when we regretfully had to disassemble it. * The diagram is very similar to that on Pic.4.4, so most of the things said about that receivers stands for this one, too.* DC voltage setting on pin 1 of ZN414 is done with the trimmer TP. Its slider is put in mid position, the receiver is tuned to some weaker station close to the upper bound of the bandwidth. While making the reproduction very quiet (slider of P as low as possible), the trimmer slider is moved until reaching optimum reception. After that the trimmer is disconnected, its resistance measured and the ordinary resistor of similar value is put into circuit. * The device operates nicely with the outside antenna made of a piece of wire measuring only half metres in length.* The reception would certainly become better if an input circuit would be added, which we spoke about in the previous project.* The receivers from pics. 4.4 and 4.5 can, with appropriate coils in the oscillator, accomplish the reception of AM stations from all the bandwidths from 70 kHz till 200 MHz.
