Hello, and welcome to my homebrew radio pages!

A little history is in order .. Some of my earliest memories are of tinkering with electronics:
#6 ignition batteries, door bells, electromagnets, Mr. Wizard, Boy Scout manuals, pinball machine parts, anything that did something when power was applied :-)

But one of the coolest projects ever was that of making my own radios, winding coils, shellacing wood orange-crate board bases, etc.

Now that I've taken a break from my recent musical endeavors, I've returned to some of these cherished projects.

These pages show some of my recent construction projects.

Hope you find them interesting and informative!
