Vlf Metal Detector Oscillator Schematic

2019910this simple bfo metal detector requires only a few of components and an evenings workhe two oscillators are simple colpitts designs using bjt transistorshe reference oscillators frequency is approximately 370khz, slightly tunable with the help of a silicon varactor diodehe outputs of the two oscillators are fed to a mixer made with q3 and q4.
