Double "D" Radio — (a.k.a. #42)

#42 Crystal Set

Font Decrease Font Increase

I am taking a new direction with this radio. I have been a fan of the Crystal Radio Society's newsletter. Besides the newsletter the Crystal Queen offers a moderated forum. That means it is a clean place to discuss crystal sets and to meet some fantastic people.

So I won't be discussing this radio here, but invite you to read all about it in an upcoming newsletter. I will tell you that the Double D Radio is much like my #41 set. This one uses smaller litz, and other parts that are easily obtained. The circuit is much the same with the coil dimensions being different.

I hope you understand my feelings about giving this set as an offering to the Crystal Queen. If you aren't already a subscriber, please support the effort and Queendom. If you have questions about this radio, you are more than welcome to e-mail me.

73 and good crystal DX. Dave - N2DS
