AM Radio Kit and Training Course
Training course is divided into 5 lessons; Audio Amplifier, Detector, IF Amplifier, Oscillator, and AM Mixer. Integrated circuit technology now included. "Superheterodyne" designed to receive standard AM (amplitude modulation) broadcast frequencies. Includes radio mounting stand.
The IC Version uses 1 IC, 3 transistors, and 1 diode while the transistor version uses 7 transistors and 2 diodes (no IC).
Both kits include an assembly, lesson and theory of operation manual. The actual assembly is broken into simple sections. Each section should be completely tested before moving on. This reduces difficult troubleshooting associated with many similar kits. Both include practical hi-tech blue PC boards with the schematic printed on the surface. The manuals are easy to understand, no previous knowledge of electronics is necessary. A special molded plastic base provides the necessary support to use the radio in any location, displaying the work achievement of the student.
Both versions require one 9V battery (not included)
