Another design is a broadband one, LC based no PLL, all broadband binocular ferrite cores except two trimmers in the final stage for 3.5W .
Even these can be removed. No tuning stage anywhere except in the oscillator. Reverse isolation is so high that 6 hours drift was 1KHz.
It outputs half a watt with no tune network in driver or final stage. It was developed in 2011.
A breeze to make as there are no air core coils except on in the oscillator stage.
