WWII-Era Battery Powered Radio Receirver

These free plans are for a flashlight-battery radio receiver.

These simple designs are very popular with beginners beause the sets combine excellent performance with low cost. This latest set in the series is a 2-unit, 2-band receiver which is so easy to build that it makes an ideal "first set" for anyone who wants to try his hand at radio.

Despite its simplicity, the set is capable of excellent performance. With a good antenna and ground, it will pull in just about all the stations that can be picked up on the usual home radio.

And, it covers the normal band plus the 160 meter and 80 meter amatuer bands, and includes police and aircraft bands!
