You are going to build an AM radio transmitter AND you will be shown how it works. When you finish your radio, it will look something like mine in the picture above.
I have attached the PDF file in the last step to this Inst'able for those without a pro membership.
Step 1: Parts and Prep (Small Stuff)
==These are the small components you will need==
- 555 timer chip
- NPN transistor
- two #103 capacitors (0.01 microfarads or 10,000 picofarads)
- #102 capacitor (0.001 microfarads or 1,000 picofarads)
- some short wires
- two 1 Kilohm resistors
- 10 Kilohm resistor
- 1/8 inch (3.5 millimeter) female audio jack (yours may have more or less than three
wires, but it must have at least two)
- 5 Kilohm potentiometer
==see next step for bigger components==
