Some close-up pictures of the transmitter
The pictue above shows the doubler and power amp stage in it´s compartment.
This picture shows the finished 100mW transmitter with the PIC10F206 Microcontroller attached.
The red wire that goes between the to compartments, is the the 9.049MHz signal from the oscillator.
