This is a simple 27MHz FM-CB receiver circuit built with TCA440 for listening CB ( citizen’s band ) transmissions with FM (frequency modulation). The selection is made with ceramic filters. This 27 MHz receiver works with an intermediary frequency of 455 kHz. The input filter is 27 MF type, so we obtain an acceptable attenuation of the mirroring frequency.
CB 27MHz Receiver Circuit Schematic
Because the intermediary frequency filter is used without adapting transformer, the selection is at 40 dB. Because of the noise in the transmission pauses, the CB receiver circuit has a squelch circuit which reacts at 4.5 kHz domain noise.
