Veronica 1W FM Transmitter Circuit

Veronica 1W FM transmitter is easy to build and to operate in FM. Veronica is also known for frequency stability, clean fm signal and uses no integrated circuit.
You may want to check this another 1W FM transmitter circuit.
Veronica transmitter is equiped with a mini-mixer and so you may forget an external mixer. This consist from T1 transistor wich amplifies the microphone signal before it is combined with cd-player audio or pc signal. R1 and R2 are potentiometers ( variable resistors ) used to adjust the audio level.

The component between R8 and C21 represents the oscillator wich generates radio signal. D1 is a varicap diode ( like a variable capacitor or trimmer) controlled by audio signal. C12, C13 and L1 decides the frequency.
The Veronica oscillator is actually formed from 2 oscillators wich operates somewhere arround 50 MHz in antiphase and the 2 signals are combined to form 100MHz fm radio signal. This kind of circuit design is stabile and is amplified up to 1W by T4 2n4427
