An unwanted AM car radio plus three transistors is your key to hours of listening enjoyment with this simple receiver.

Covering 3.5 to 7.5 megahertz in four bands, it allows reception of radio amateurs, short wave broadcasters, time signals and much more.

It's sensitive, stable and simple to build.
