The heart of the circuit is series-resonant circuit Ll-C2-C3 in the feedback loop of amplifiers T1 -T2. Transistor T2, which is connected as an emitter follower, serves as impedance converter, whereas T1, connected in a common base circuit, is a volt- age amplifier whose amplification is determined by the impedance of Ll in its col- lector circuit and the emitter current. The feedback loop runs from the collector of T1 via the junction of capacitive divider Cl -C2, source follower BS170 and the input impedance formed by R1 and C4. The whole is strongly reminiscent of a Colpitts circuit. The signal is also taken to the output terminal via C5. Of particular interest is the amplitude control by the current s...
