Hello I have many IF-transformers (cans) taken out from transistor radios and CB but I do not know their resonating frequency.
I have access to a spectrum analyzer so I would like to make an HF oscillator to find their frequency.
I have tried different oscillators from the internet but I could not make anyone oscillate.

I've build this oscillator and it works perfect but I need to switch the positions of the 2 variables capacitors to have the 15p-280p grounded (I have some Hf signals coming from antenna) The problem is when I permute the two CVs, I dont have the same frequency range ?? What can I do without changing the circuit? Thanks

I need some help..Ive been trying to build a RF amplifier for 12MHZ .But ive had some problems driving power.
The basic oscillator is a colpitts one with crystal using a BJT 2N2222 .Output is taken from BJT colector.The bjt colector also has a choke tied to +Vcc.But I need to boost output power. Just 1 BJT isnt enough for getting 180Vpp and 20

You will be best off by using inductive coupling. Especially if everything is in a large metal box.
In the EU there are rules on unintentional radiation in the HF ISM bands. You can exceed these with just tens of watts of power.

It depends on the rate of charge you plan. Considering 0.1C (1/10 th of battery rated amperage), ie, 10A, you need a power supply capable of supplying 13.5V 10A. This is 135W of output power. You could use flyback or forward here, although at this power, you should look towards half-bridge or two-switch forward.
For half-bridge, you need a

Could anyone suggest a method of generating a stable 13.56 MHz sine wave? I have used a VCO in the past for a UHF application but I am trying to stay clear of using smt.
I've looked into the possibility of using a colpitts oscillator but have not built one in the past... Are they pretty stable?

Can this be done using a quartz crystal for better stability, or the crystal does not allow so much deviation?
Also are there any sources of such a schematic?

Yes, this reduces the Q of the inductor and also sets the impedance at higher frequencies as resistive.
In the old days of valve/tube power amplifiers it was common to put such a network (with higher inductance) in the plate leads of HF power amplifiers to reduce the probability of spurious oscillations at VHF.

The problem is tricky - he wants to have consumption about 3 microwatts .
So oscillator must be very efficient , that put restriction on using UHF, which is preferred for such communication - antenna lenght could be very small)
I think you can experiment with ferrite antennas on LF-HF band to keep power consumption low.

xorcise is right about the oscillator frequency for 50Hz output.
But I don't think the inverter will be running at 50Hz. That is the output frequency, which is really just a modulation for the HF signal.
I will try to dig up some schematics.

In the HF frequency range higher Q is a must for inductors as it represents less dissipative loss.
For the best results air core inductors are often silver plated, but also enamel covered copper wire will do the job as copper inductors has acceptable Q. Try to make your own 50nH inductor, see details

Many of the mobile chargers are based on HV oscillators which are without negative feedback and they only produce an AC wave which is HF and then a rectifier and then applying that to the mobile and then mobile will use it's supply IC to make it useable .
