Veroboard isn't good for RF, for the same reasons as breadboards (although breadboards are far worse). If you remove all the unused pieces of track it may well be OK though, obviously it all depends on your exact layout (just as it would with a PCB).Spectacular Butter said:I know breadboards are not good for RF transmission. If i change the circuits to using veroboards, will it improve the performance?
If no, then what is the best way to test an RF receiver and transmitter?
How about posting all the details in the 'Electronics Projects' forum?.audioguru said:Hi Butter,
I just finished making a 3-transistor plus regulator FM transmitter with Veroboard and it works fine. I used a tight layout, proper RF bypassing and cut unused and extra-length tracks.
I agree with audioguru - 433MHz is rather high (UHF), are you actually wanting to build the 433MHz part, or simply use a ready built licence free module?.Spectacular Butter said:its 433 MHz. How do u guys effectively remove all the copper tracks?
In that case I don't see any problem, the 433MHz part isn't even connected to the board.Spectacular Butter said:
No I haven't, generally I try any make my layouts very repeatable, and easily copied from a picture - multiple components in a hole would detract from that.audioguru said:Hi Nigel,
With Veroboard, have you ever used very small wire to make jumpers so that you have 2 jumpers in one hole?
Because I used 22 guage wire I have always had a single jumper in a hole, requiring the strip to be longer when making a "T" connection.
