FM Tuning Capacitor with AM FM Tuning Capacitor (15pf-40pf) with AM
In this circuit diagram we have mention about FM tuning side only.When we assemble the Tuning Capacitor, we must be careful to select correct  side of  tuning capacitor.Normally in the FM side of the tuner middle pin and other  pin capacitance will be nearly 15pF  to 40pF.
Middle pins: B and F, FM side:A,B, C  in this photo.

    If somebody wants sony doc pl ref following site

  2. kensou,sei says:

    it is ok just simple to adjust the design
    on the if it is copied

  3. Nichole says:

    The Diagram So Very Nice !
    thanks ! ! !

  4. ISHUZA says:

    I’m very interested with this design can I order the materials from your through western union money transfer and get them so that I may real experience it?
    please if ok let me know.

  5. radio jock says:

    is there any specification for IF transformer ?? shopkeeper doesn’t understand ORANGE color….

  6. Rajeen says:

    If you can’t find out IF Transformer, replace 10.7 two pin ceramic filter. Audio output will increase and tuning part become easy. Good Luck !

  7. Mina says:

    please if i need to suimulate this this circuit on orcad how could i find CXA1019s or FM Tuning Capacitor

  8. Sreerag says:

    Nice presentation!
    CXA1619BS is a powerful IC.
    please post am AM/MW reciever (only AM) diagram with bar antenna.

  9. shimizudani says:

    nice diagram…

    can you provide also the am/fm radio circuit??

  10. shimizudani says:

    can i ask what is a simulator program that you used in trying this circuit… i try using the tinycad but i don’t
    see some items listed…

  11. anonymous says:

    can i use red if transformer instead?what are other alternatives if orange if transformer is not available?

  12. fatmaa amen says:

    please i need the data sheet of cxa1019s whigh in the wirless alarm car circit which is

  13. amith says:

    very good performance

  14. Gobinathan says:

    Super presentation

  15. Alisa says:

    Hello, can any one tell me plz, how to identify diodes?

  16. n.saravanan says:

    hai i ask one doubt if cxa1619 is similar to cxa1019 please reply to me
    thanks and regards,

  18. Joe Perkins says:

    The discriminator transformer is of the “quadrature” type. In this application it is the same as the Xicon 42IF124 (approximately 4.5uH in parallel with a 51PF capacitor. The ceramic discriminator (LT10.7) will give greater volume and reduce adjustments but at slightly higher distortion.

  22. Basudev says:

    Can I Make FM Transmitter USING Sony CXA10198. Do You Know IC PIN Name Please Reply.

  23. Cxa1019 is no longer producted but you can find IT by China In `verygood quality`with thumb face at bottom. Now u can find 1238 n1619.Look at datasheet compare it n u Will never ask again. These for 10 years children. For your project should use transistor all, make IT very sensitive. Nggih mas.

  24. Sabyasachi maji says:

    If i will use same inductance (both 3.75 turns) and same pf (C5 and C6) what will be the problem ?

  25. Saeed Mahdavi asl says:

    Hi dear sir
    I have made the radio exactly according to your schematic but it has only the hiss sound. The only difference is using two 20 pf variable caps with two pins instead of one with three pins. Now what should i do to make it work?
