I have designed an oscillator using 2n2222A which is generating stable oscillations at 100MHZ . Then later I designed a amplifer stage for this oscillator by using 2n2222A. but the output of this amplifer stage I am getting a frequency change of 4 MHZ that is 96MHZ...I am not able to understand why this is happening and why there is a change in frequency at the output of the amplifer stage.

To solve this problem I started looking at different issues like Impedance matching. I designed impedance matching which improved the output power of the amplifer but the frequency variations are still inchanged.

I assume it is a L-C oscillator, not crystal-controlled.

There are many possible explanations for this.

Insufficient buffering between the oscillator circuit and the amplifier circuit.

Feedback from amplifier (need better shielding, power supply decoupling, etc.)

Power supply regulation (if you have varactors or other voltage dependant capacitances in our L-C) changes with addition of amplifier

If you post the circuit here on the forum, you will probably get more suggestions.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
