MORSE_CODE_OSCILLATOR
The circuit is built around a 555 oscillator (IC1) and an LM386 audio amplifier (IC2). The 555 circuit is an astable oscillator, with the chip output retriggering the circuit. When the key (S1) is pressed, it activates the circuit. The 555 oscillates at a frequency determined by R1, R2, and C1. Potentiometer R2 is used to adjust the tone frequency of the oscillator. Some of the output current of IC1 is coupled to IC2 via a 10-°F capacitor, C2, so that it will be sufficient to drive a loudspeaker. Because the circuit has no gain control, the volume depends on the size and wattage of the speaker.
