Old Homebrew Crystal Radio
This is an old homebrewed crystal radio that works great. I bought
it and fixed a couple of loose connections and picked up several
stations loud and clear. It looks like all the parts are 1920's
vintage and was probably made around that time, judging on the
parts, construction and dust. I will include a newly made galena
crystal plus the original one, and a diode attached on the back of
the panel to bypass the catwhisker crystal. All you need is antenna
and ground wires and some high impedance headphones. $69
Heathkit CR1 Crystal Radio #3
This Heathkit CR-1 Crystal Radio has one unfortunate chip in a
corner someone tried to repair, and a scratch on the faceplate,
neither of which affect the function of the radio. Also there is a
little patch of tape residue on the top surface. It works fine, and
the internal parts appear untouched. $89SOLD
Miller Model 595 High Fidelity AM tuner crystal radio
The Miller 595 High Fidelity Tuner is actually a dual tuned circuit
crystal radio praised as the most selective crystal radio ever made.
This is made possible by the dual tuned bandpass circuit and the
vernier gear reduction tuning drive mechanism. This set is in good
working condition, and the cosmetic condition is good or better with
some minor scratches on top and fading on the faceplate. Tested and
working and I can pick up 10 or so stations here with a 15 foot
indoor wire antenna. The original output cord can plug into an
amplifier or you can hook up high impedance headphones. $125

breadboard type plaque, has a 2 circuit loose coupled circuit, with
a diode, variable capacitor with dial knob, and Fahnstock clips for
the antenna, ground and headphone connections. Complete with Cannon
Alnico 1000 ohm high impedance single sided headphones. Just hook up
antenna and ground and it picks up loads of AM stations here.
One Tube Shortwave Regenerative Radio Kit with Submini Tube.
This is a kit of parts to make a one tube regenerative shortwave
radio based on a 6418 subminiature tube. It includes all the parts
needed to make the radio as shown above, with vintage National
porcelain tuning condenser new old stock in original box, Johnson
trimmer capacitor, ferrite toroid coil core, breadboard, and all
necessary electronic components, hardware, wire, and a pair of
Newcomb high impedance headphones. There is a set of detailed
instructions, plus schematic and diagrammatic sketches to aid
construction. I have enough parts for 4 sets right now, may be some
variation in the knobs available. $49SOLD OUT
Inquire if interested and I should be able to put together
the parts for another kit but am out of the variable capacitors now,
can provide the submini 6418 tubes for $2.50 each, also have some
other submini tubes that would work.
Below is a photo of a completed set, using slightly different parts.
The frequency range as tested was 5.5-9 MHz, but the coil can be
modified to other frequencies.
