The latest addition is the Ford Direct Conversion Receiver - especially suited for novice constructors - it has a very detailed manual that you can download.
The Culm CW transceiver (80m version below) is going well! For the higher bands, up to 20m, use with the improved Sim-mix kit to avoid the limitations of crystals.

There is a wide range of designs, with something for most radio interests and construction abilities. These kits are for people interested in analogue radio! You can start with a small project or build your own complete station. The circuitry is what I concentrate on with the aim of maximising 'performance' for whatever you decide to spend. Most of the kits can be easily adapted to add facilities, because of the simple mechanics and the wide range of accessories. All kits are built in stages with testing as you progress so that, with the extensive instructions, you should develop a good understanding of how the project works and thus succeed first time! When combined with low cost mechanics, these kits provide excellent value for money and most will satisfy the practical examination aspects of obtaining your licence. Choose from:-
I will also be contributing regularly to Hot Iron which is now being compiled by Peter Thornton G6NGR. It is sent by e mail to those who have specifically asked to be included on the distribution list; it contains mildly technical articles (with very little maths), kit design ideas or outline information, questions, builders kit experiences, general electronic news, etc on semi-technical subjects, with advance notice for new kits - so why not tell Peter email@example.com your e address now!
I hope so! If not please tell me what's missing - I am always delighted to have suggestions for new kits. Any comments or questions are very welcome to me, Tim Walford G3PCJ, at the address below or via e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org This site was last updated on Nov 12th 2018.
