I've just added a new page to my website, The VE7SL Radio Notebook, that describes my NEOPHYTE 1 regenerative receiver spring construction project. The new page can be found here.
Like most simple regens, its performance far exceeds its simple circuit expectations. My listening adventures with it continue during The Radio Board's annual Homebrew DX Contest which runs from July 11 - 24th. You may want to give it a try, after of course, you've checked-out my new web page!
Nice little project idea for our shut in time. Brings back memories of my young
life with radio. Thanks! Bruce (K9ICP)
This is real Ham radio ! Super neat job—-I built a similar Regen in 1958 using a 6N7 double triode & was 6 feet of the deck with joy when the 1st signal came thru on the headphones ! Looking at this one, I might just build it & see how it performs–they normally give you some excellent results compared to all the complex new stuff on the Ham market. Lets see some more of simple homebrewing stuff like this–its rare !
