10-16-02 - I hoped to have the schematic
on line but computer problems seem to be following me. Last month
it was the computer and the hard drive. This month, and today to
be exact, my old-reliable PaperPort scanner has decided to stop
working. I saw a newer model at Sams Club the other day for under
$50., so I guess I'll drop by tomorrow and pick it up......
10-24-02 update - I now have the new
scanner running. Bargains aren't always bargains. It needed new
driver software to properly work with the USB port on my computer.
It took a while to figure everything out, but wow is it fast! Much
faster than the old Parallel port before. My other projects should
be completed much faster now.
If you have early QST magazines, this article is in the January
1949 on page 48. The basic circuit is still popular with collectors
today, it's a 6L6 oscillator driving an 807.
The radio in the photos below was built from that QST article.
My friend and fellow collector Pete Grave, an SWL from Pennsylvania,
found this at a Hamfest and thought it would be a good subject for
the Old Radio column.
