TECSUN 2P3 AM TRANSISTOR RADIO KIT
Since it's approaching Xmas time, I thought it might be an idea to repost this little gem which is a nice stocking filler.
bought me a little transistor radio kit for my birthday and I was really chuffed with it. It's the sort of gift I would have treasured when I was a child, but back then all I got was a couple of tin cans and a piece of string 😂
Back in the 60's I was a little
obsessed with transistor radios and I still have a great fondness for them when I see them on the internet. There were some fantastic designs (I'm talking aesthetics now) and I'd love to collect some of them, but the price of them is just plain ridiculous!
The most awkward bit of the whole project was installing the ferrite bar and soldering those (6) TINY antenna wires to the PCB. After I'd finished the job, I used a hot-glue gun to stop the coils sliding up and down the bar.
