Product Information

Two Tube + IC Regenerative Receiver (Kit)

Based on original 1930's designs, with a modern twist, using Varactor tuning,  Plug-In Coils and a solid state 2 watt amplifier.

If you ever wondered how those early radio and wireless receivers from the 1930's worked, then why not build your very own.

The whole set runs off two 9 volt batteries, and one 1.5 volt battery, so is absolutely safe to build and use, no nasty high voltages, it is a great way to learn a new hobby!
