Adventure Radio

I was reminded by Les G3VQO of my Adventure Radio web pages. These date from long before SOTA and may make interesting reading to some here.



In reply to G3CWI:

Hi Richard,

I saw your pages already about one year ago. I remember the explanation how the radio waves work without the cat in between :wink:

My story started in 1982 (I was young) with 4 W home made transmitter and direct conversion receiver. The antenna was a dipole on 80 m. At this time I had three crystals to choose the operation frequency. The CW key was straight and not a good one. I was building also a QRP transceiver with VFO from the ARRL book Solid State Design for the Radio Amateur, but had too many activities and did not finish it. Now I read that the same book was also inspiration for the KX1.
