You might have the classiest and most expensive car among your friends, yes. You might even have polished and sleek interiors and an expensive and flashy pair of wheels, but without an equally amazing audio system, you might as well have brought a vintage car. The heart of every car’s audio system is its in dash receiver. It may be a radio, mp3, or DVD receiver, the point is that without music or sounds to bob your head to while cruising along the highway, no matter how expensive your car is, your driving experience would still end up bland and boring. In dash receivers come in different forms, specifications, and sizes. Some may just be for radio, other for both mp3 players and CD players, others for DVD players, and the more expensive ones even have built-in equalizers. With it, you can make any driving experience a party. Every car enthusiast knows the value of a good quality in dash receiver, and how it could really change the feel of your car.

The first thing to consider in buying one is the sound quality. Your receiver will be useless as crap if the sound it emits is resembles a pregnant dog howling during the night. Sound quality is in the top spot, as always. Of course, you would want to cruise along while listening to clear and booming 50 Cent, right? Second factor is the power factor. It is important that the in dash receiver you get have subwoofers. Third, a good receiver must have complete controls available for the convenience of the buyer. The type of receiver that you would eventually get would depend on your budget. The receivers with most function would probably price around $ 400 – $ 500. It may be a wee bit expensive especially if you are driving an economy car, so you might as well go with the ones ranged around $ 100 – $ 200. The more pricey ones have the function of CD, DVD, mp3, and Satellite receiving. The less expensive ones are simply for radio and cassette. While some stores would price their receivers as high as $ 1000 or more, claiming that they have the best quality, Indashreceivers.com offers the same specifications in lower prices. For as low as $ 100, you get the same specs without hurting your pocket. Plus, the receivers that they offer come in stylish designs that are flexible to the car that you own. They are up to date and trendy, for sure. They also offer a variety of brands that will surely make your shopping experience worthwhile. At a very considerable price, you will surely get a good quality and better priced receiver in Indashreceivers.com. They believe that your car deserves the best because your car carries the name and personality of the owner. Without sacrificing the functionality of the receivers and the convenience of the buyers, Indashreceivers.com has some of the best offers among the many online car electronics stores around.

Experiences of car enthusiasts tell us how receivers make driving more enjoyable for them. It is time to take their advice and buy a good in dash receiver now!

Peoples life is shrinking around office desks and monotony is seeping slowly in the lives. Holidays are must for any individual to remain sane in the fast lane life. But todays successful people also want to remain free of any bondage of relationships. That is why their life is lonely. But they even enjoy the status and freedom of being a singleton. And it applies to their way of holidaying too. Tourists for singles holidays are increasing day by day. And even UK single travellers are no anomaly.

The pattern of enjoying vacations is changing. Gone are the days when vacations used to be the medium to refresh and strengthen the relationships or friendship by spending time together. But now single traveller holidays are the new way to widen the social circle. Single traveller is the one who ventures out to explore the world on his or her own. They go on holidays for single and travel freely as a bird. People now pack backpacks and forget the world to discover a new world of single people on singles holidays. They share their unique experiences with each other.

Everybody has his or her own reason to travel. Some people go on tour for singles to meet new people and learn from their experiences. They want break from the boredom of some trying relationship or just want to see new and eager faces of other singletons that are on their own. The chance to meet interesting people increases on singles holidays abroad.

Holidays for solo are becoming preferred with both the single travellers and the companies. There are companies who specialise only in arranging tour for singles. Singletons want to explore the world uninterrupted and that is what companies try to provide for them on single holidays abroad. The exotic locations of East Asia, Caribbean islands are quite popular among UK single travellers. Some other popular holiday destinations are Greece, Las Vegas, Australia, Thailand and so on for singles holidays abroad.

Even the mention of going to altogether different country on single traveller holidays sends thrill and rush to the nerves. And todays people living in the fast lane always look for such adventure and excitement in their lives. The whole industry of holidays for solo is not only expanding it is changing or should we say developing every other year. It adapts itself according to the demands of the market. And the market is becoming young and more experimental. Single holiday abroad has not remained untouched. Single travellers ask for new and fresh to see and explore every time.

So holidays for single are an obligation for an individual to rejuvenate the senses and to get a brake the monotonous hum-drum of lives.

Basic designs

Crystal radio

Main article: Crystal radio receiver

A crystal set receiver consisting of a antenna, a variable inductor, a cat’s whisker, and a capacitor.

Advantages

Simple, easy to make. This is the classic design for a clandestine receiver in a POW camp.

Disadvantages

Insensitive, it needs a very strong RF signal to operate.

Poor selectivity, it often only has only one tuned circuit.

Direct amplification

Main article: directly amplifying receiver

The directly amplifying receiver contains the input radio frequency filter, the radio frequency amplifier (amplifying radio signal of the tuned station), the detector and the sound frequency amplifier. This design is simple and reliable, but much less sensitive than the superheterodyne (described below).

Reflectional

Main article: reflectional receiver

The reflectional receiver contains the single amplifier that amplifies first radio, and then (after detection) sound frequency. It is simpler, smaller and consumes less power, but it is also comparatively unstable.

Regenerative

Main article: Regenerative circuit

The Regenerative circuit has the advantage of being potentially very sensitive, it uses positive feedback to increase the gain of the stage. Many valved sets were made which used a single stage. However if misused it has the great potential to cause radio interference, if the set is adjusted wrongly (too much feedback used) then the detector stage will oscillate so causing the interference.

Regenerative Receiver Schematic

Tuned radio frequency

Main article: Tuned radio frequency receiver

the RF interference that the local oscillator can generate can be controlled with the use of a buffer stage between the LO and the Detector, and a buffer or RF amp stage between the LO and the antenna.

Direct conversion

Main article: Direct-conversion receiver

In the Direct conversion receiver the signals from the aerial pass through a band pass filter, and an amplifier before reaching a non-linear mixer where they are mixed with a signal from a local oscillator which is tuned to the carrier wave frequency of an AM or SSB transmitter. The output of this mixer is then passed through a low pass filter before an audio amplifier. This is then the output of the radio.

For CW morse the local oscillator is tuned to a frequency slightly different from that of the transmitter to make the received signal audible.

Advantages

Simpler than a superhet

Better tuning than a simple crystal set

Disadvantages

Less selective than a superhet with regard to strong in-band signals

A wider bandwidth than a good SSB communications radio, this is because no sideband filtering exists in this circuit.

Superheterodyne

Main article: Superheterodyne receiver

Here are two superheterodyne designs for AM and FM respectively. The FM design is a cheap design intended for a broadcast band household receiver.

A schematic of a superhet AM receiver. Note that the radio has a AGC loop.

For single conversion superheterodyne AM receivers designed for mediumwave and longwave the IF is commonly 455 kHz.

A schematic of a simple cheap superhet FM receiver. Note that the radio lacks a AGC loop, and that the IF amplifier has a very high gain and is driven into clipping.

For many single conversion superheterodyne receivers designed for band II FM (88 – 108 MHz) the IF is commonly 10.7 MHz. For TV sets the IF tends to be at 33 to 40 MHz.

FM vs. AM

To make a good AM receiver an automatic gain control loop is essential; this requires good design. To make a good FM receiver a large number of RF amps which are driven into limiting are required to create a receiver which can take advantage of the capture effect, one of the biggest advantages of FM. With valved (tube) systems it is more expensive to make active stages than it is to make the same number of stages with solid state parts, so for a valved superhet it is simpler to make an AM receiver with the automatic gain control loop while for a solid state receiver it is simpler to make an FM unit. Hence even while the idea of FM was known before World War II its use was rare because of the cost of valves – in the UK the government had a valve holder tax which encouraged radio receiver designers to use as few active stages as possible, – but when solid state parts became available FM started to gain favour.

Automatic gain control
