    On Ham Nation, we have started a terrific new CONTINUING series called, "The Pine Board Project". We will be building a vacuum tube AM transmitter. Power supply, microphone pre amp, transmitter and tuner each built on 5 x 5 inch pine board.


    Warm up your soldering irons!

    Now we are talkin! I'm ready. Already have one and several CW only too. Real radios glow in the dark and are made from trees. Hopefully a carbon mic too. (Ok probably a Heil) Sorry. I got carried away in the excitment.

    I love Bob and what he has done for ham radio. I also love this project. However, Bob is going to get someone hurt with this project. Dangerously high voltages out in the open are an accident waiting to happen for the unexperienced builder of tube gear. I just hope he spends enough time disclosing and disclaiming the risks. We dont need anymore SK's !

    We are HAMs not CBers. We are supposed to understand electricity. Just like our XYLs know don't touch the burner on the electric stove. And it does not have to have exposed wiring anyway. That is why God invented insulation.
    My 1943 breadboard station you would have to hunt for a place to get a zapp. I am waiting because I want to see the preamp and modulator circuit to see if I can work it into my 6l6EH breadboard rig.
    I also want to see this balsa wood set from KL7AJ. We need a wooden tube radio photo page!
