The 7805,7812, 7815,..... are surely very far from good enough
to use in any serious radio project. Fortunately, big capacitors
will remove all noise above 100 Hz or so if they are used properly.
I doubt better regulators will be good enough without RC filters
and therefore I am using simple old 7812 and 7912. The 470 microfarad 
capacitors take care of all the noise well enough to make the large 
noise from 7812 completely harmless.
