The proposal relates to an improved VCO cir- cuit operating, for example, in the ultra high fre- quency (UHF) band. Such VCOs are used in radios where certain operating parameters are required (e.g., maximum phase noise -124 dBc in 1 Hz, fre- quency offset 25 kHz, temperature +"C...+8O"C). Further, the VCO has to follow the trend to rninia- turization and cost reduction.
