Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Build a crystal detector, build headphones, build capacitors...and all and everything else you need to create a functioning radio.

Chapters include the gallows headphone, the tin can headphone, the boom detector, the paper tube condenser, practical variable condensers, the roofing metal condenser, the crank coil, thoughts on simple tuners, thoughts on antennas and grounds, and much more.

Pete built, wrote, illustrated, and published this remarkable how-to book. It's wall-to-wall how-to, experiments, photographs, diagrams, and hints and tips. There are more ideas here than you'll have time to explore.

You have to see Pete's beautiful crank coil, his remarkable homebuilt detector, his incredible paper capacitors, his variable condenser....and yes! You CAN build this stuff. A must-have book for anyone who builds radios of any description, old or new
