We define passive circuits as those that do not connect directly to a battery, AC supply, solar cell or similar power source. Amphtication devices such as discrete transistors or operutional IC ampli- fiers ure not used in passive circuits, As an example, the BC-CB DUPLEXER project prevents transmitted and received CB RF power from eniering your auto radio even though both use the same CB whip an- tenna, The duplexer is @ passive circuit, com- PASSIVE CIRCUIT PROJECTS posed entirely of resistive. capacitive ductive clements, that clectrically permits the .55 to 1.6 MHz AM signal to pays only to the AM radio, not to the CB set. Similar ly, «27.135 MHz CB signal (CHIS) picked up by the same antenna will be electronically routed directly 10 the CR set—hypasing compleicly the AM radio, So, passive circuits you find in this issue do net require way type of “gain” devices: they are, in addition. fairly simple projects that are used to improve the operation or make measurements of other ele equipment. How about you gettins active with a passive circuit today? Here's an easy way to measure an ampli fier's output power without trying to con. vert voltage to power measurements. Re sistor RI provides the load for your ampli- fier and should be rated at least twice the meximum amplifier power output: for ex- ample, if your amp puts out 26 watts, RL should be rated at least 50 watts. The meter scale must be hand calibrated, and will take some time and effort, but once done it's done for good. Remove the 4 ij Audio Wattmeter scale cover from meter ML and borrow an AC variable autotransformer, or ‘connect a 1000 Hz signal generator to the ampli fier output. Connect the output of the auto- transformer (or amplifier) to binding posts BP1 and BP2, and connect an AC volt. meter (VOM) across the binding posts. Set R2 to off—full counter-clockwise if correct- ly wired. Adjust the autotransformer (or amplifier) output until the AC meter indi- cates 20 V rms—the voltage for 50 watts
