Circuit: Graham Maynard

Repell those repugnent insects from your Garden this Summer with this insect repellant circuit.
Designed by Graham Maynard the circuitry consists of a phase locked loop (CMOS 4047) wired as a 22KHz
oscillator. The output is amplified by a pair of complimentary output transistors and drives a Motorola 3.25
inch Piezo. Current drain is around 120mA so an external power supply is recommended.
The piezo used was a standard 85mm square Motorola Horn, Maplin part number WF09K or WF55K. These are
rated +/-3dB to 28kHz.
