- BPF

- LPF+HPF=BPF
- What frequency range?
- How to implement? RL? RC? Do I need something more?

- Amplifier

- Do we need an amplifier? Is the incoming signal large enough?

- LPF:

- What frequency range?
- How to implement?

- Oscillator:

- Outputs a logic high and logic low. What is the best way to convert this to a co/sine wave (multiplex?)
- What value are we looking for?

- Frequency Range:

- FM is most likely too high to create
- AM radio (car stereo) is about right. Find a station you want to tune to. KFBK 1530?
- AM is allowed +- 5kHz
- 96kHz of bandwidth (due to what the audio card can sample)

- SI570 can create a number of frequencies
