NoGa has completed a
publication that has 14 of it's best club projects. These projects include:
This publication is 117
pages of fun packed information with schematics, pictures, assembly instructions, tips and
errata. It is professionally produced in a bound manual that will lie flat
when you are building.

NoGa/Georgia Cracker 80 Transmitter
This project was originally a "use what you have" project. We
have had inquiries as to recommended values for some of the components that were not
specifically identified in the article. Here are our recommendations:
- Output Transistor - 2N3866, BFQ163, 2N3053, 2SC799 (or any similar).
- Zener Diode - 1N475A 39v originally but anything from 33-39 will do. ½ or 1 watt.
- Variable cap C3 - Anything from 200 pf to 400 pf will do.
- Keying transistor -A 2N4036 is shown (not clearly) and the 2N3906 and 2N4403 (or
similar) will work fine. This is just a keying circuit so not critical.
- Wire sizes - On transformer and filter inductor. Not critical but the article does
call for #26 on L1 and L2 (tuned by the variable cap c#) and #22 on L3. Other sizes in
this area will work with slightly different results.
