I am trying to build a FM receiver circuit with simplest elements, transistors, capacitors (an op-amp such as LM 741 would be fine too) for analysis purposes (not real-time radio). The circuit should be able to tune into FM station, and output frequecies close to that station. I don't need demodulation, I will do that seperately (the plan is I interface with the analog output through an Arduino, I want to capture the data, and code digital demodulation). What is the simplest circuit for this task?
I guess this request would fall under software-defined-radio, so I am trying to build a hobbyist's, simplest dongle.
