This FM radio kit is a monophonic, two-IC, FM (frequency modulation) receiver designed to receive FM signals in the 88-108MHz frequency range. It uses electronic auto-scan to search for FM stations. This scan system is done with two button switches – one switch scans up, the other resets to the start of the tuning position.
The unique design of this radio kit allows you to place the parts over the corresponding symbols in the schematic drawing on the surface of the printed circuit board. This technique maximizes the learning process, while keeping the chance of assembly error at a minimum.
To simplify troubleshooting the FM radio, it is constructed in two sections (Audio and RF). There are two IC’s, one for the audio section, the other for the RF. The RF IC is surface mounted (SM-IC), pre-installed on the high quality printed circuit board.
