    Hi everyone!

    So we have a cheap baby monitor and the receiver has just went to crap over time; barely functions.

    I've been having a small interest in wanting to learn electronics; as someone who likes working with computers I don't even know how to use a breadboard.

    so, that said, I think the first project to learn electronics is by building a new wireless receiver. I've opened the one we own up before and it really doesn't look too complicated. A couple resistors here, some wires there.

    That said, would it be best to find an actual plan for a receiver or, does it make more sense to open the model I have up and draw schematics from that?

    I know the receiver should be picking up 49.8 MHz based on the manual that came with the receiver I have. but I don't have any tool to really confirm this.

    Reverse engineering is not as easy as you may think. Can you post a good photo?
