About Posting a Comment

Comments are moderated before they will appear on the website, this is a manual process and may take some time. Please be patient.

Author Name is a required field.

Email Address is optional, but without one I won't be able to contact you back. It is never shown or linked on the website. You can always just email me if you'd rather not post a public comment. I generally reply in-line with a comment rather than email you back, unless I want to discuss something in private or off topic. Please check back to see when I reply.

Website URL is optional, if supplied the Author Name will be hyperlinked to this URL.

You may use wikitext in the body, preview may be handy here. Don't worry if you can't figure them out, just give me a hint what you want linked to what and I'll do it during moderation. Wikitext is not BBcode!

Spammers: Please don't bother wasting your time scripting up posts to this form. Everything is moderated, your post will never be seen on the web even transiently, there is no way to even view it by its internal ID, it will never be indexed. I will simply delete your post in the moderation interface. If I'm your target audience you're really on the wrong track; I'll never click on a URL in your garbage. The post content is not emailed to me (and I don't use a Win32 mail client anyway), I view the posts in plain text in the moderation interface so no clever tricks of any kind will make anything you type be interpreted by anything other than me, a human. Just give up and go elsewhere please!

You can use a Ge diode if it is all you have, but the Si schottky 1N5711 will probably be more sensitive at higher frequencies.

With the biasing even a common 1N4148 or similar Si detector will work fairly well. The biasing might need to be tweaked for different diode types. The MPSA18 is a good choice for the transistor as it has quite a large current gain.
