    This weekend and next are the right times to dust off (or build!) a self excited oscillator for the Antique Wireless Association's 1929 Bruce Kelley QSO Party.

    Here is a link to information on building a 1929 transmitter:

    and operating the BK:

    Only need a few parts and these transmitters are loads of fun to build. If you've already built one, please post some pics! Here are some examples:

    2 months ago I'd never heard of the BK29 QSO party. But when I did I drank the koolaid and came up with this. So far CT, VA and NH on 160 with abt 4 watts from 2 Eveready Raytheon 227's and some long wires in the air. So turn off your computers and try some real radio this weekend. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
