An interesting circuit appeared in the April 1961 edition of CQ Magazine; "The RXT-2," by W6MMC. This was a 40m regenerodyne receiver using three Philco transistors and one Raytheon CK-768.

Click to enlarge"The Virgin" A DC 40M Receiver by KK9JEF
My first HF receiver project is complete.
It’s not fancy. It’s rock-bound with no ability to QSY. It only has a single RF gain control up front. It’s direct conversion, so it hears all signals on both sides of its frequency.

Click to enlarge12BH7 single Direct conversion receiver by JF1OZL
I picked up many valves on the broken TV-sets on the street about 30 years ago. I got many 12BH7A on them. In these days (in the end of 1990's) I made a radio to receive 7MHz SSB and CW signal with these valves stocked.

I made a 7MHz band monitor scope. It exchanges all existing signals of that timing of 7MHz-band to viewer image like a hill on the oscilloscope.

Click to enlarge7MHz receiver by JF1OZL
One day on the second hand shop on my town, I found the FM tuner sold only with 10 dollars. That tuner was old type. The frequency display of it was not digital but made by a needle and a thread. I bout it and made SSB rcvr.

Click to enlarge7MHz Receiver by G3PTO
I decided to build this receiver, having become totally disatisfied with the TS120 receivers performance on 7Mhz.

V7MHz SSB to MW-AM convertor by JF1OZL
These days, they have hybrid-radio's named Mini-compo in every home. With this machine, you can hear 7MHz SSB signal by the MW-radio of mini-compo. Because MW-radio has no BFO, it cannot demodulate the ssb signal.

Click to enlarge7R1015BB “All PNP on Breadboard” Receiver by JH5ESM
A direct conversion receiver for 7MHz only made of single kind of general purpose PNP transistor is presented. No other semiconductor devices (even diodes!) are used. The circuit is built on a solderless breadboard so that it is easy to build, repair and modify it.

Click to enlarge7R3357 "Fujimino40", an AGC-less Superhet Receiver for 7MHz CW by JH5ESM
Once upon a time, there was an FM IF subsystem IC called MC3357. The IF section of MC/NJM3357 consists of five stage cascaded differential amplifiers and thus it works as an IF limiter. The objective of this page is to propose a CW receiver featuring AGC-less IF section.

Click to enlargeA regenerative receiver for the 40 m band by LA3ZA
I've had a lot of fun with the modified WBR (Wheatstone Bridge Regenerative) receiver which I built Manhattan-style some years ago. The design builds on the receiver described by Daniel Wissell, N1BYT in QST August 2001. Although it doesn't match a good superheterodyne, you get more performance per component than in any other receiver!

Klik voor vergrotingA Simple but Very Sensitive Regen Receiver for 40 Meters by KE3IJ
Here's a schematic of my version of the trusty old Regen radio. The heart of it is Q2, where I use a common JFET (Field Effect Transistor), an MPF102, in a modified Armstrong "tickler coil" design where I supply feedback from the "bottom"-- the Source of the JFET -- rather than the usual top -- the Drain of the FET. Works just as well either way.

Click to enlargeAustin's Regenerative Receiver by AA5TB
Back in 2002 my then 7 year old son Austin wanted me to help him build a radio. At that time I helped him build a cigar box crystal radio set. He enjoyed that radio but since then he has taken a liking to CW ...
