Hi Friend! Thanks for showing up. This is my second homemade
radio page. The first is my homemade crystal set page. I got so excited about this homebrew project, I decided to make
some tube sets too.
I would like to tell you a little about my background. My interest in radio
goes back to around 1955 when I was 5 years old. My dad used to repair radios
before I was around. Luckily he got into something that actually paid real
money. Luckily too, he kept all the old radio stuff. I started soldering and
fiddling before I was 10 years old. My dad had earned his Amateur Radio
license, and I tagged along. I learned a lot.
For the next 25 years, I put together many projects, tube and semiconductor.
I earned my Novice ham ticket in 1965. This only accelerated the building.
I was a nerd before it was popular. I just sat in my cellar and played
with my Weller as someone once said.
I built quite a few crystal radios, but never any regenerative radios. These
pages will describe the regen sets that I am working on. I do these pages
in near real-time. If I am waiting for parts to come on or the shellac to
dry, I pop into the computer room and type a few lines of code.
73, Dave - N2DS
