500kHz TX transverter schematic

This is the schematic of my 500kHz QRP TX transverter (from 28MHz). The next steps are (a) to add a couple of relays and RF sensing so that I can use it as a full RX/TX transverter and (b) changing the output stage to an FET such as an IRF510 to increase the output to 5-10W from the 700mW currently.

Hi Roger,

Does this circuit also produce a 136kHz signal?

I really enjoy your blog.

Cheers,

Yes, it should work equally well at 136kHz although the low pass filter values will need to be scaled down too. In the coming weeks I hope to do a test with it on 136kHz with a local station a few kilometres away.
