Hi Pampi, I looked some more at your past posts and see on page 2 that you gave some RF probe measurements of you VXO. Those all look good to me and are similar to what I have measured, so I think that your VXO is operating well. One thing to look at, is the the lm386-1 should not be run at over than 12VDC. What is your supply voltage? Here also is a list of DC voltages for my lm386. Note that some measurements may be different than your as I am using the datasheet's "AM Receiver" circuit. lm386-1 Pin Vdc 1 1.4 2 0.0 3 0.0 4 0.0 5 5.9 6 12.0 7 6.1 8 1.4 Also for reference, with the volume set midway, the receiver is consuming about 35mA of current. Hope this can help us figure out your receiver. 73, Mark.
