Figure 10. Micropower pencil receiver. Circuitry visible at top; assembly shown below.
The receiver in this repeater is shown in Figure 9.   Its performance is comparable to that of a standard communications receiver, normally about 12" x 12" x 3".   At a center frequency of 300 MHz it has a noise figure of 2.6 decibels in a bandwidth of 15 MHz-a figure not so unusual except that only one thousandth of a watt is required to operate it.
The impact of the availability of this type of electronic equipment is very significant. The operation of a repeater from a, candle, of receivers such as the above from single batteries, and almost as many other marvels as one cares to dream about are at hand.   The actual application of these possibilities is not so straightforward as it may at first seem; we bave not discussed the mechanical problems associated with microtechnology.   But these problems, though many and complex, are certainly not unsolvable. That solutions are possible is
