I want some advices about a radio transmistter,actually this radio trasmitter is more a location transmitter which transmits at about 512Hz.I want to know how could i design a transmiter and a receiver at this frequency,is it some ic that could do this or do i need to use some discret components ? With the receiver i want something like a device that show me when i am really close to the transmitter.It's called 512Hz sonde. Example: https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/remote-transmitter

Thank you !

    \$\begingroup\$ Why such a low frequency? An optimal antenna will be many kilometers long. In fact it would probably be easier to find the antenna and track it to the transmitter, than to build a matching directionally sensitive receiver for it. \$\endgroup\$ – jippie Sep 30 '15 at 18:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ok,i want to have a device which is equipped with a radio transmitter which will be "inserted" in sewage pipe and i want to locate with a radio receiver from surface.All i want to know is when i am really close to the device. @jippie i saw some devices that operate at this frequency, i don't have any claims about frequency just to pass through ground(4-5 meters). \$\endgroup\$ – Stefan Merfu Sep 30 '15 at 18:37

What i was looking is LFMC(Low-Frequency Magnet Transmitter).
