Tube AM Broadcast Transmitter Kit with plug-in Medium Wave coils

If you ever wondered how those early radio and wireless transmitters from the 1930's worked, then why not build your very own. Now your Vintage AM radio can play some OTR (Old Time Radio) programs as it did when it was new. With your CD, MP3, iPod, iPhone, or crytal microphone. This two tube transmitter becomes a miniature AM broadcasting station.

The set runs off 27 to 74 volts HT (3 or more PP3 batteries) and 1.4 volts for the filaments (1 D Cell). At 27 volts HT it is safe to build and use, even if you are not familiar with tube circuits, no nasty high voltages, it is a great way to learn a new hobby! If you want more power, then up the HT voltage, 36 to 45 volts (4 or 5 PP3 batteries) will provide a strong signal for around the house. Ideal to send AM broadcast signals to your Vintage Radio collection from MP3 player or similar.
