"The Little Sweetheart" Receiver

Wow, what a beautiful piece of work! And a fascinating story behind it, with hints of wartime romance... Thanks to Mike AA1TJ whose very eclectic reading (Czech tech mags!) led us to this. Thanks also the Crypto Museum. Here is the link:

  1. I love these little clandestine radios - ingenious solutions in a neat little package.

    Would love to see some kits based on the Sweetheart & the other radios like the postwar German FE-8 Receiver and the FS-7 Transmitter.
