Crystal Set Information The wonder of a crystal radio crosses generations, as that is exactly how many radio buffs began their interest in communications. To build a working radio, on the first try, and be able to listen to stations hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles away is a thrill that can not be easily duplicated
Crystal Sets An early design of circuit is shown. Far from ideal, it still provided reception within a few miles of the transmitter providing the aerial was long enough
Vectronics Crystal Radio Set Kit Crystal Radio Set Kit VEC-121K $19.95 Relive the experience of early radio pioneers
PV Scientific Crystal Radio Kit Page Limited Edition Kit. For constructing a superior-quality, directly coupled set with wave-trap rejection tuning and a beautiful steel galena cat's whisker detector. Includes a pair of first-rate Brandes headphones, 1920's vintage, which work better for the purpose than anything made today. Contains brass variable capacitors, fine-machined binding posts, original dials and knobs, and other original parts guaranteed to make a crystal set that works extremely well and looks beautiful. $150.
0077.html Some folks have asked me how to get started with classroom projects
building crystal radios to teach about energy, electricity, chemistry, earth science, communications, the history of technology, and such. You may remember that the 'magic' of crystal radios is that they use no battery, no AC outlet, no solar cell - NO VISIBLE MEANS OF POWER AT ALL. That's right - totally powerless radio listening! Free tunes for life!
Crystal Radio I have received a number of emails regarding schematics for crystal radios. After about the third email, I figured that I may as well put one on my page. So here it is. The circuit is very simple with only 5 parts, but performs very nicely when used with the right size antenna.
DIY: Crystal Set Radio You can buy complete crystal set kits from a number of venders, but I say, "Don't do it!" Not only is building your own crystal set fun for the whole family, but it's easy to do and can be done for $30-40 (or less depending on what you can find in your junk box). Why, you can have your set up and running in less time than it takes to program your VCR!

KC6WDK's Multiband Dipole Antenna Illustrated above is KC6WDK's simple multiband dipole antenna for 80 and 40 meter operation. The 40 meter section also permits use on 15 meters. The sections are separated by 2' at the far ends of the 40 meter elements. The antenna is made from scrap lengths of insulated wire with the ends twisted together. The 50-ohm RG-58 coax is coiled at the feed point to form a broadband choke balun which prevents antenna currents from flowing back into the transmission line.

EASY HAM BAND RCVR CW RECEIVER FOR 80 AND 40 METERS Cost estimate: $20-$30 This amazingly sensitive and dependable "Simplest Ham Receiver" is capable of receiving CW (Morse Code) signals. It is crystal controlled and thus very stable and immune to drift and hand-capacitance detuning. With my version of this receiver I have QSO'd 7 states with QRP power and monitored CW stations coast-to-coast using a dipole antenna just 12 feet off the ground
http://www.intio.or.jp/jf10zl/hiketu.htm (secrets of Handmade) A secret of how to make communication equipment.
After you make some kits , you will want to make FM transceiver or SSB transmitter. Then you learn the circuit of the magazine. You will collect the parts of it. But you will not be able to collect the same number of the transistor or coil. Then you must arrange some part of the article.

Or you may change the band of the transmitter from 14MHz to 21MHz because of your antenna or your license. I will explain you some points you must care to make a plan of the radio equipment.You must care about " power lebel ", " frequency planning " and " impedance matching". More at site with pictures too.




Learning Morse Code from Tutor Boxes Tutor boxes are ingenious devices which generate Morse code characters and play them over built-in speakers. Tiny internal computers can even generate entire Morse code messages! The boxes allow the student to start simple with small groups of characters and eventually work up to complete, meaningful messages, similar to what you would hear on the ham bands. The boxes have many options, usually including the choice of speed and whether or not to use Farnsworth compression.

Ham Radio Codes "Q" SIGNALS Given below are a number of "Q" signals whose meanings most often need to be expressed with brevity and clearness in amateur work. These are very helpful in CW or VOICE communications to save time and during noisy or busy traffic. ("Q" abbreviations take the form of questions only when each is sent followed by a question mark.) Most of the information listed below was taken from "The Radio Amateur's Handbook 1976". This is a nice chart of the Q codes and RST meanings.

Learning Morse Code Painlessly, by Bill Weinhardt W9PPG LEARNING THE CODE by W9PPG, Bill Weinhardt . With the advent of the "no code" technician license, why even learn the code? Some who achieve this license will not, but if you desire privileges on the HF bands, you must learn the learn the code and pass a test at 5 words per minute. Doing this will earn the "novice" class license privileges on the HF bands.

CW is my favorite mode, and cannot be beat for weak signal communications. No other mode can even come close. I have spent many hours chasing after DX on both SSB and CW on the HF bands. When comparing the success rate of CW vs. SSB, there is no question about it. The number of completed QSO's on CW is way ahead of SSB, or any of the other modes.

QRP, use low power output.

The Columbus QRP Club New Kit! CQrp Mrx-40 . Mini 40 Meter Receiver. The Overview: CQrp is VERY pleased to announce our first kit effort. We call it the CQrp Mrx-40. It was originally designed with the Micronaut transmitter in mind. The thought was to make a companion receiver to the Micronaut. This was accomplished, but in the process, we were able to come up with a very nice receiver for many applications.
Hide's QRP Home Page JA9MAT (Hidehiko KOMACHI) Hello OMs!Here is the Page for Hams interested in The Low Power Communications ,says "QRP". My name is Hidehiko Komachi, born in 1957, and I live in Toyama-prefecture where is about 400km northwest of Tokyo. I started Ham Radio in 1975 ( 1st class licensed ) and I have been on the air by 5watts maximum power in all bands. I started QRP because I was very surprised when I heard the QRPp 50mW Signal of JH1HTK, Mr.Masuzawa who is the President of JA-QRP Club. And because I had no enough money to buy a expensive Transceiver, I must make my own Rigs and Antenna. First I made a simple 40m Transmitter and RF1-IF2-AF2 Single Super Heterodyne RX from old TV and MW-RADIO Set. Nowadays I have no enough time to enjoy Home-Brewing so I enjoy making the QRP Kits from Heath, Mizuho, Nor Cal, Small Wonder Lab, G-QRP etc.... 
QRP: Bry's HAM PAGES by AF4K The challenge of -=QRP=- is to operate and/or build CW (Morse Code) or voice (AM & SSB) radio transmitters (& simple receivers) for the amateur bands using a bare minimum of components, money and construction skill; equipment that is useful for radio amateurs looking for some diversion beyond their regular pursuits. Note that you need a license to transmit with this equipment!

Wound on a 3 foot length of PVC pipe, the long loopstick antenna was an experiment to try to improve AM radio reception without using a long wire or ground. It works fairly well and greatly improved reception of a weak station 130 miles away. A longer rod antenna will probably work better if space allows. The number of turns of wire needed for the loopstick can be worked out from the single layer, air core inductance formula:

NONSTANDARD EXPERIMENTS IN INTRODUCTORY PHYSICS LABORATORY (p4) Introduction The measurements of sound velocity in metals are usually done for thin rods. They can also be performed for thin pipes of any constant cross-sectional shape. Rods are better, of course, because they can acquire more sound energy for the same size and result in long duration of the sound wave. etc
Hobby Electronics: Operational Amplifier Basics----Page 2 A very simple application of operational amplifiers is as a comparator. A comparator acts as an on/off switch. The figure below shows the common 741 op amp IC configured as a comparator. If there is no difference between the reference voltage and the input (or monitored) voltage, the output of this circuit will be zero. However, if the input voltage rises or falls below the reference voltage, the op amp will immediately produce a full output signal.

Electronic Schematics Schematics, This is a collection of circuits, mostly for the electronics hobbyist. Most of these schematics are in ASCII text, when possible, so that users of text based web viewers will be able to read them. I don't claim to be the world's greatest ASCII artist, so just e-mail if you can't figure out what I was trying to draw.

Pulsar FM Radio Pages WHO ARE WE? Welcome to the Pulsar FM Radio renewed internet pages. We are an alliance of two little stations in the Western part of the Netherlands. Both these stations use the name Pulsar FM. We are not some kind of musicstation and we are anything but commercial. We are just two little radio pioneers getting satisfaction by building our own equipment and by making DX-connections.
This page has a neat Applet for an index, worth a visit just to check that out.

SM5GNN Glowbugs page How did they do it in the past? Ham radio archeology? Glowbugs is a movement among hams devoted to research on, construction and operation of radio gear from anno dazumal. Typical rigs, but not limited to, are one tube transmitters, crystal controlled or self excited, and regenerative receivers using only a couple of tubes. Most operations are on the 80 and 40 meter bands, usually CW.
The Magic Of Amateur Radio Web Site Earning an Amateur Radio License is a very special achievement.
There are over a half a million people in the world who are called Amateur Radio Operators, or hams. Amateur Radio serve the public as a All Voluntary, non-commercial, communication service.Amateur Radio Operators have earned a very special privilege by being able to communicate directly with each another by way of radio, without regard to geographic barriers.

AB0CW's Vintage Communications Gear, Homebrew, and Longwave Page Welcome to the homepage of AB0CW, Mark B. Dittmar, in Westminster, Colorado. I have been an amateur radio operator for about 20 years. I first got my novice license back in 1977 with the call WD8PCE. I kept this call until about two years ago at which time I upgraded to advanced, KI0EC, and then extra, AB0CW. My interests with amateur radio have always revolved around operating, maintaining, and restoring vintage gear, aka "boatanchors", as well as building homebrew qrp equipment. I operate 95% HF CW. Other radio-related interests include PART 15 longwave communications and antique broadcast band receivers, so I have sections on these too; check them out ! On these pages you will find a bunch of photos of my gear, along with shematics/design info of some of my homebrew stuff, and various commentary/ramblings.
Homebrew About 50 links, I did not count them.
