Re: BITX Hacks : Improved audio

Mike Hoddy

Hi Randy - I took out C113 between Pin1 and Pin 8 of the LM386 and it reduces the overloading, not a lot but enough.  The problem with the LM386 is that its a good general purpose amp but its prone to overloading and its a bit noisy.  I've used them in other rigs and they work OK but I tend to drop the gain and feed an outboard AF amplifier?
