2019-11-26 My Radio As A Kid

from FB Comment Nov 26 I inherited old tube radios, I never had a boy’s radio, still don’t today. But I got a 2 transistor SupereX kit that I built. It was a crystal set with an earphone amplifier. Didn’t work very good because I lived a few miles from an AM transmitter and until

2019-01-15 2nd FM Microphone Kit Assembled

I ordered some other FM Microphone kits, and assembled one last week. This is a better one, labeled EEQKIT RF-02FM VER170525. It has three transistors, one of which is a microphone preamp and it should perform much better. The kit also has a jack that will allow you to plug in a stereo signal from

2019-01-08 99 Cent Wireless Microphone Kit Assembly

2018-01-08 also FB group Building Transistor Radios Before the Xmas holidays I ordered a few of these at 99 cents apiece, and they gave a delivery date of late Jan to early Feb, so I was pleasantly surprised to get them early. There are many of these single transistor microphones around, either as schematics or

2018-12-17 Radio Shack P-Box Kits

from FB group Building Transistor Radios 2018-12-17 Seems that what you’re saying is these P-box kits were very slow sellers, so they ended up as overstock at the surplus store. What I find odd is that I used to buy parts from RS but I can’t remember ever seeing these kits in the store. I

2018-10-05 Air Band Radio Kit HMOOABRA_4.3 Part 1

Will also post to FB. I ordered this air band radio kit from China a few weeks ago and received it a few days ago. Yesterday I spent most of the day assembling it. I’m an experienced kit builder and believe me, it was difficult. The kit came with a single sheet of paper, on

2018-09-11 Vectronics Aircraft Radio Kit

I got the Vectronics VEC-131K aircraft band radio kit in the mail yesterday and warmed up the soldering iron to assemble it. It came at a decent price, so some of my complaints seem to be cost cutting measures. It comes with a decent assembly instruction manual, but some of the pages including the schematic

2018-05-13 My First Transistor Radio

From FB group Vintage Transistor Radios OMG, that was so long ago, I could never sort out which one. See, I was born with a soldering iron in my hand, and I fixed so many radios, I could never remember which one was one that I had. Most of the electronics I was given were
