Default Re: Radio Project books 147/148 (Peter Haddock)

Making Transistor Radios was my introduction as a 9 year old to electronic construction back in 1971. This book was chosen for me by some classmates from the mobile school library as they knew I liked playing with radios, bulbs and batteries but up until then I never realised that you could actually make your own electronic devices.

I pestered my parents for some components and in the end my uncle gave me a whole box full of components and useful stuff which allowed me to build some of the circuits from that book. I still have some of bits from that box 50 years later.
