    BTW, I"m on a regen receiver kick for the last couple years. Gathering parts to build a Doerle two tube "Signal Gripper". Design is from a Hugo Gernsback publication with six or seven models.

    Yahoo has an active Regen forum. "Regenerative Receiver Group". Professor Arnie Coro
    CO2KK, from Radio Havana, posts frequently and contributes designs.

    Bruce W1UJR, has an original Signal Gripper:

    both post awsome info... will keep me busy for a few mins lol

    the two-er looks sweet... as does the 6k7 rg... ill have to open the s22r up and see whats left in for parts. al tubes are there. so might get 6sk7 and the audio tube out of it.. mmmmmm voltageeeeee lol weeeeeee.... tho the canteen uses 25 volts min. so might try that one with 2 batterys...

    maybe turn the s22r into a rregen.. things to make you go mmmmm

    "Emergency Preparedness on a Budget" would be a better title.

    will bein that the s22r is a death trap. even if rebuilt. i think ill use it for the case and VC and dial... it still has smooth dial gear train. cap truns nice n smooth..

    iam not sure if there is a way to get the 25Z5 to a safe place. to be used in the canteen RG. sure would be cool to..

    if there is a safe way to use this 25Z5 be cool to know. from the schematic. it shows ac in to 2 points. 1 to ballast. other to the 25z5.
    ballast is the warmers. 25z5 is radio side.
