    i need to generate an ac signal of frequency 10Mhz ...also i need current sufficent enough to light up 2-3 60w bulbs, wat shud i do?
    colpitts oscillator seems to be an option..would sum1 care to elaborate about it. :)

    would the circuits provided in the link be able to sustain that amount of power (i mean the power sufficient dimly light up atleast a 60w bulb). i tried making a very trivial form of colpitts oscillator ,wen i connected it to a 8w bulb, the inductor got roasted to red. :(

    If you're not opposed to using high voltage, the most straightforward means is with a vacuum tube oscillator, using somethinig like an 811A.

    This one uses 3 811's but you can get by with just one. :)
