CONSTRUCTION OF MINI RADIO BROADCAST TRANSMITTER AND AUDIO CONSOLE USING FREQUENCY MODULATION FM WITH POWER RATING OF 1 WATT

ABSTRACT

The early transmitter for radio broadcasting is so big and bulky that they do occupy numerous spaces. The circuitries are mainly designed with valves, which are big in sizes.

With the advent of semiconductor materials such as transistors electronic equipment are now becoming miniaturized such that small transmitters are now becoming handy and compact.

In line with this we choose to design a complete radio broadcasting equipment tat is compact and existence of semiconductor materials.

The system units are of two categories namely: audio console for the processing and mixing of musicals is basically a condenser microphone.

The transmitter unit is where the center frequency is provided. All these were designed to be in compact and small manner. This project is aimed at serving a community using a small and compact radio broadcasting equipment with a power watt of 1 watt a community of 1 kilometer in radius should be covered comfortable and the audio production very clear unlike the common noisy FM microphone project.
