A 5763 Crystal Power Oscillator For the Neophyte Regen


I've just added a new page to my main website, 'The VE7SL Radio Notebook' that describes the recent construction and operating adventures with the small companion transmitter built to pair with my NEOPHYTE REGEN. I may have worked several of you with the pair already and if so, many thanks. I hope to work the rest of you soon!

    Nice article and planning to build this. Have most of the parts except the 6U8A, However, the parts list for L1 just says 22 AWS enameled wire and refers the details to the text. I could not find the details of L1, i.e., what diameter form and how many turns.

    I recall from the early 70s that my Heathkit Sixer had a 6U8 osc/tripler followed by a 5763 PA stage, delivering about 10W AM for local nets. Its regen receiver design left a lot to be desired though. Were those the good old days?

    KV4XU Robert if you go to my web page article describing the receiver, clicking on the last photo of the regen (the one showing it with a big tuning knob) will bring up a pdf of the original magazine article showing all of the coil details. I didn’t follow them exactly, choosing to wind coils for the BCB and others to cover up to 20MHz. I used the bases from old tubes for coil forms as well as adding an adjustable 1-turn link for antenna coupling.
