I've been building shelves for my wife. So I end up with all these nice pieces of pine, just the right size for the base of a breadboard receiver and a very sturdy cabinet to surround it. Then I find in the junk box two nice variable caps and this old pill bottle coil (with tickler!) that I wound in 1998; I figure they will resonate from around 5 - 15 MHz. Then Jeff Murray, K1NSS does that poster about Dave Richards, AA7EE (scroll down) in which he mentions the virtues of a National Velvet Vernier reduction drive -- I have one of those too. And then there is the copper-clad board (from AL7RV/W8NSA) that would be perfect for the front panel. You see where this is going, right? My friends, I am once again on the road to shortwave regeneration. It will have an Armstrong detector with throttle cap.
