Latest News

The Rockwell (below) is the latest in a long line of my TRFs and Regens receivers that get a little bit better with every new design! It has two general coverage bands which can be any pair of MW or around 160, and around 80 or 40m! Just right for those new to electronic construction whether individually or as part of a Radio Club led group. Details here!

The Halse and Hatch are also now available! Picture of the 20m TCVR below. Together they form a nominal 5W Single Sideband phone transceiver for any one of the 20, 40 or 80m bands, with an emphasis on ease of construction. Details here!

The latest addition is the Axe 1.5W double sideband phone transmitter for any single band 20 - 80m.


Don't forget that readers of Hot Iron get advance warning of new developments!

The Kit Designs

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 also publish the quarterly newsletter Hot Iron which 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 me your e address now! I am always delighted to have material for it and suggestions for topics that might to be covered.
