Bugs (Electronic) & Detectors







3 Transistor FM Radio Bug
3m 100 MHz small bug
Bug Detector (mini) - This project is a handy piece of TEST EQUIPMENT. You can never have enough assistance when designing FM bugs.  The first thing you need to know after putting a bug together is the fact it is transmitting.
This project gives you this indication. Once you know a bug is transmitting, you can work on getting the best output power and adjusting the frequency to a blank spot on the dial.

Crystal Locked FM Bug - Producing a crystal locked transmitter is a natural extension to our FM Bug series.  We have already produced a number of simple FM devices, (without the use of a crystal) and showed how the power and frequency depends on a number of factors including the voltage of the supply and the design of the stages.
Electronic Eavesdropping Devices Detector - Copyright of this circuit belongs to smart kit electronics. In this page we will use this circuit to discuss for improvements and we will introduce some changes based on original schematic.

FM Telephone Bug (Tony van Roon)
FM Telephone line Bug Transmitter (Aaron Cake)
FM Transmitter Bug - This small transmitter uses a hartley type oscillator. Normally the capacitor in the tank circuit would connect at the base of the transistor, but at VHF the base emitter capacitance of the transistor acts as a short circuit, so in effect, it still is.
High Power FM Microphone FM Bug - My FM Wireless Microphone has been a very popular project with beginners and experienced constructors alike. It has been used inside guitars and as the basis of a remote control system.
Infinity Bug - This project requires a high degree of soldering. It uses surface-mount resistors, capacitors transistors and diodes.  It can only be assembled on the PC board supplied…
Miniature FM Spy Mic - This spy mic works from single 1.5 volts AA type battery cell. It is highly sensitive and has a range of 300 meters. You can use any HF transistor with cut-off freq. >300 MHz for Q. Use electret mic.
Simple Phone Tap (Aaron Cake)
Surveillance Transmitter Detector - This circuit can be used to "sweep" an area or room and will indicate if a surveillance device is operative. The problem in making a suitable a detector is to get its sensitivity just right, Too much sensitivity and it will respond to radio broadcasts, too little, and nothing will be heard.
Telephone Listening Bug - Here is a simple transmitter that when connected to a phone line, will transmit anything on that line (except the dial tone) to any FM radio. The frequency can be tuned from 88 to about 94Mhz and the range is about 200 feet. It is extremely easy to build and is therefore a good, useful beginner project.
Three Transistor FM Radio Bug
Vibrating pocket bug detector
Wireless Telephone Bug - Here's a neat little project that will allow you to monitor your phone line as soon as your phone is off hook. You can use a regular FM broadcast band radio to monitor the conversation.
Wireless Telephone Eavesdropper Electronic Circuit - The IR transmitter connects to a telephone circuit, and transmits both sides of all telephone conversations to any line-of-sight location, within 40 feet. No power is taken from the central office, as long as all phones remain on-hook. The current flows through the phone and back to the central office.
