The school teacher says build the DC circuit first. Once the bias is good add the AC components. So this is the goal.
I moved the lead back to the output and adjusted it for 1 volt. Now to see the input.
Is it enough? Well 1 stage = X10. 2 stages = X100. 3 stages = X1000. 4 stages = X10000. How much gain should you need in an amp?
I made this circuit with 3 stages and put an AF transformer on the output. When I shunted the input with a diode and attached an antenna I could hear my local radio station. It was actually to load and will need a volume control. So again this circuit repeated three or four times and find an AF source to attach.
Oh if you don't have any terminal strips just drive three pins in a board and hook it up.
