Hi Dave,

I've attached a couple of pix of my latest build. This radio is a single-tuned set using a Tuggle style tuner and an untuned but variable-coupling detector coil. The variocoupler first saw service as part of my LowFER antenna coupling unit.

It's a pretty good performer for such a simple set, and having variable coupling sure is handy in the evening when some greater selectivity is nice. On its own, the set is a joy to use for casual listening.

I'd appreciate it if you would add it to your page of visitors sets which I found very interesting to browse through.
