MW Ensemble . Electric Oscillations + Field Recordings, Set V – AM Modulation @ Radius Episode 61

A small circuit oscillator was built on a breadboard using a CMOS chip, resistors, and capacitors. A fraction of the signals generated by the oscillator were received by a radio and detected at discrete AM frequencies. Experiment 1: AM Modulation + Oscillations, I – frequency scan (Set V)  First, the radio was turned on and a radio broadcast could be heard.  After a few seconds the oscill... Read More »
