This Unit was originally manufactured back in the 80s, and sold exclusive to Law Enforcement. It has an RF output of around 3 milliwatts RMS. It was built using surface mount with back to back boards the size of a postage stamp combined with a 3V button cell battery. The unit was used with an RF Repeater concealed in the trunk of an automobile nearby. It has also been manufactured using 1/10th size TTH components, on a drilled board (Standing Up). I have used various standard audio (Q1 and Q2) and RF Transistors (Q3, Q4 and Q5) over the years of the PN plastic type that worked well when I built it - thru the hole - so if you go that route, rather than surface mount - just experiment with different transistors. Most all will work.
