Remember hunching over your regenerative receiver for hours with a pair of phones pressing uncomfortably against your ears?
You could hear just about anything that fancy superhets could hear. Sure, you had to play around with the regeneration control just right and have a steady hand to tune but you could hear me. Don’t you wish you could relive some of this fun and excitement of your youth – share some of it with your kids and grandkids? Well, you can – with the MFJ-8100K World Band Shortwave Radio Kit.
Spend a fun evening with your child or grandchild and help him put his simple kit together. When the two of you finish, watch him glow with excitement as he tunes the world bands – just like you did – and remember for life. It might even inspire him into a career in electronics. This baby performs. An RF stage really picks up the weak ones and it goes into regeneration smoothly without pops or dead spots. Stations all over the world will come in loud and clear with a 10 ft wire antenna.
