It works *very* well, thanks
So far, I've only wound coils for 80 & 40m. It took a bit of
re-winding to get the 40m coil to target where I had
wanted them. (The 80m coils worked as described in the text.)
Most of the RF between the converter & oscillator coil are
mounted "above deck", supposedly so that one can receive
up to 60 Mc. (or, 60Hz
I could not locate the original Miller permeability IF coils .. the
IF transformers that I've used are capacitively tuned, but seem to
And, the BFO coil was scavenged out of an old Hammarlund
receiver, intended for 455kHz. I selected a few different capacitors
for the BFO and placed the coil into and abandoned IF can,
previously for IF.
This receiver's IF is at 1600kHz.
I can tune in SBB & CW very nicely.
The radio is intended to go down into the 75-154kHz range too.
But, I'll need to get around to winding more coils!
