SA612AN PDF Spec Sheet
This HF Mixer kit includes VXO circuit parts to be used with the 612 audio detector to receive 40 meter signals on 7030 KHz.
The balanced front end of the 612 mixer connects to a BN-43-2402 balun transformer for matching.
For a 50 ohm input, make the primary 2 turns and the secondary 12 turns center tapped at 6 turns. Use the 34 GA wire included in the kit.
The center tap is the mixer AGC control. See the LM386 amp kit for more info.
D1,D2 are input protection diodes; not required and not included in the kit.
L1 is used to lower the mixer's crystal freq. Using 14 turns of 27 GA wire on the black FT37-61 core will provide a tuning range of about 7026 to 7032 KHz.
More than 14 turns tend to stop the VXO from oscillating.
OUTPUT: Parts are included in the PCB bag for 2 different output circuits.
1. Single ended output; connect the 1000pF cap (labeled 102) from pin5 of U1 to pin2 of J3
2. Balanced tuned; Install C5 (note flat side physical polarity) and C6.
For 5068 KHz output, wind a 24 turn primary and a 5 turn secondary on a red T37-2 toroid and install on the PCB.
Use the 27 GA wire (red & green)
Note: Schematic show a 7 MHz output but 5 MHZ is correct.
