This radio kit will cover the AM radio band along with the SW radio band. Power for this receiver is 1.5 V DC for the filaments and 45V DC for the plate current. A D cell and five 9V transistor batteries wired in series will work to power this radio. A 2000 ohm headset or an audio amplifier is required. Requires two T-1T4_DF91 tubes (not included).

This was a fun kit to build... a couple of notes to really make this kit sing... you need a long wire... like 75 to 100 feet to hear the short wave bands. Also, these are battery tubes... so don't expect that orange glow... you can see it if you strain your eyes in a dark room, but don't expect that glow to double as a night light. I did add a couple of improvements to make tuning easier: I added a Philmore vernier dial to the tuning capacitor to reduce the speed of tuning - these can be very expensive - almost half the cost of the radio, but we'll worth it! I will also be replacing the 50 ohm regen control pot with a 10-turn 100 ohm potentiometer. Also kind of expensive, but it makes tuning a lot easier. Another thing about battery tubes... you don't have to wait for them to warm up... they started working instantly like transistors.

The wooden chassis and front plate are very poor quality. They are no where near rectangular and the cut is extremely rough. As for the construction, it is not too difficult and goes together rather easily. I was disappointed with the sensitivity of the completed product. I built a similar two tube (also 1t4's) radio when I was about 10 or 12 years old that had much better sensitivity. This was to be a nostalgic return to my childhood, but found it quite disappointing.

Fine kit but there is missing an alligator clip.
