1943 Station

From VE3LYX

Not long ago I found a 1943 ARRL handbook at a antique sale. It had a breadboard transmitter and a regen receiver design. I built them both for a vintage period correct station but built both on actual breadboards. I have had this station on the air successfully and have been operating it everyday. It is crystal controlled and CW only. I hang around 3561khz. if you hear me came back. Any mode I will deal with it.
