Hello folks,

I am still working on my digital tube radio, and came across this setup in the schematic of a Sherwood 3000 radio:



Both tubes are limiter stages. The IF is 10.7MHz. I estimated the value of the inductor based on size and core.

What does the anode inductor do? The thing that really puzzles me is that it is tunable (I have the radio sitting next to me). There is a turnable ferrite slug in there. What could it possibly be tuned WITH?

Thanks,
Charl

Hi Charl
It is to resonate roughly at 10.7MHz with the combination of stray capacitance around the tube base plus the anode to suppressor capacitance of the EF89 first stage plus the input capacitance of the following stage. Note the latter will be magnified somewhat by Miller Effect

Since many of these values can only be approximately estimated, the inductor is usually adjustable

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 ...
