So you're a guitar musician and you live in an apart-ment...what else needs to be said! You would love to plug
into your 100 watt Hi Watt (my favorite brand!) amplifier
and let it crank, but the neighbors probably wouldn't share
your enthusiasm! The PGA1 was designed to give you
hours of enjoyment playing your favorite electric guitar
while isolating your family, friends, and neighbors from your music and your passion. (I still use the original engineering prototype with my SG with P90’s!)
Whether you use an acoustic electric, electric, or bass guitar, the PGA1 gives you
an adjustable volume output to your favorite headphones. Unlike a lot of practice
amps, the PGA1 has a special bass boost to enhance bass guitar use. One practice amp for all your guitars! If you want to practice to your favorite music, the
PGA1 has a standard style audio input to play to your favorite music! Just plug in
your Walkman style CD player, MP3 player, or even the headphone output on your
mixer board and you'll hear both your music source and your guitar in your headphones!
The PGA1 uses a powerful LM386 power amplifier to provide one watt of power
to your headphones or even a small speaker! It gets even better...use the PGA1 as
a cheap and easy direct inserter box to match your guitar into an aux input of a
stereo receiver amplifier or PA amplifier! It sounds GREAT! A standard ¼" audio
input connector is used for your guitar input, matching your standard guitar
cables. A top mounted on/off/volume control adjusts the headphone output level
through the full range. The small belt clip pocket size device runs on a standard
9V battery (not included). A LED indicates power-on and relative battery condition. The attractive compact case measures 4. 5"H x 2.7"W x 1.1"D.

Digital Conrolled FM
✔ Rock stable PLL synthesized
✔ Front panel digital control and
display of all parameters!
✔ Professional metal case
✔ Super audio quality!
✔ 25m W and 1W models!
For nearly a decade we’ve been the leader in hobbyist FM radio transmitters.
When it became time for a new model, we started from the ground up! We told
our engineers we wanted a new technology transmitter that would provide
FM100 series quality without the advanced mixer features. They took it as a challenge and designed not one, but TWO transmitters!
The FM30 is designed using through-hole technology
and components and is available only as a do-it-yourself kit, with a 25m W output very similar to our FM25
series. Then the engineers redesigned their brand-new design using surface mount technology (SMT) for
a very special factory assembled and tested FM35WT
version, with 1W output for our export-only market!
Both are designed around an RF tight vinyl clad metal
enclosure for noise free and interference free operation. All settings are done through the front panel digital control and LCD display and they are stored in
non-volatile memory for future use. Both the FM30
and FM35WT operate on 13. 8 to 16VDC and include a 15VDC 110/220VAC plug
in power supply. The stylish black anodized aluminum case measures 5. 55"W x
6. 45"D x 1.5"H. and is a great match to your other equipment.
(Note: After assembly of this do-it-yourself hobby kit, the user is responsible for complying with all FCC rules & regulations within the US, or any regulations of their respective
governing body. FM35BWT is for export use and can only be shipped to locations outside the continental US or valid APO/FPO addresses or valid customs brokers for end
delivery outside the continental US.)

Passive Air Band
✔ Monitors the entire aircraft band without
✔ Passive design, can be used on aircraft, with
no local oscillator, it generates and creates
no possible interference!
✔ Great for air shows
✔ Patented circuit and design!
Written Up In Communications
For decades we have been known for our novel
and creative product designs. Well, check this one
out! An aircraft receiver that receives all nearby
traffic without any tuning. It gets better... there is
no local oscillator so it doesn't produce, and can't
produce, any interference associated with all
other receivers with an LO. That means you
can use it onboard aircraft as a passive device!
And what will you hear? The closest and
strongest traffic, mainly, the plane you're sitting
in! How unique is this? We have a patent on
it, and that says it all!
This broadband radio monitors transmissions
over the entire aircraft band of 118-136 MHz. The way it works is simple.
Strongest man wins! The strongest signal within the pass band of the radio will
be heard. And unlike the FM capture effect, multiple aircraft signals will be heard
simultaneously with the strongest one the loudest! And that means the aircraft
closest to you, and the towers closest to you! All without any tuning or looking
up frequencies! So, where would this come in handy?
1. At an air show! Just imagine listening to all the traffic as it happens
2. Onboard aircraft to listen to that aircraft and associated control towers
3. Private pilots to monitor ATIS and other field traffic during preflight
activities (saves Hobbs time!)
4. Commercial pilots to monitor ATIS and other field traffic as needed at
5. General aircraft monitoring enthusiasts
Wait, you can't use a radio receiver onboard aircraft because they contain a local
oscillator that could generate interfering signals! We have you covered on that
one. The ABM1 has no local oscillator, it doesn't, can't, and won't generate any
RF whatsoever! That's why our patent abstract is titled "Aircraft band radio receiver which does not radi-
SPECIFICATIONS ate interfering signals".
118 MHz to 136 MHz It doesn't get any plain-Patented Passive Detector er than that!

time in airports or onboard aircraft, the ABM1 is for you!
