WX9DX: I have built and installed these Ten Tec BFO kits in lots of AM
only radios. Even into CB radios so they could hear sideband. The other
cool thing they make a neat kit for people learning electronics to get used
to soldering and alignment etc. Lots of cool theory for them to learn in
building this kit.

dani grg: hello ...wow.. nice... please send me circuit diagram..
Glaiza Heyrosa: hi friend, can u send a bfo circuit diagram. reply. tks.
sparkdetect: I built one of these...I had to re-tune the ferrite slug often as I tuned
across a ham band, and worse, the drift was unacceptable; I had to
constantly adjust the tuning knob. Would be nice if they brought out a new
kit with better stability.
timeanagain: Are special tools needed for this kit build? Could a beginner build it? I
passed the Novice license exam about 25 years ago, but never got started in
Ham radio. Would love to practice receiving morse code again. I can't seem
to find and inexpensive radio with BFO on it. Any suggestions for that
Radionut R: How does it hook up to the radio? Unclear BUT looks like fun!!!
Marco Hofschneider: What about the zillions or older radios out there that use an IF of 460
khz, like the vintage Grundigs for example?
F4EPU: Nice realisation! 73s David F4EPU
Chris Freitas: Wow! That receiver brings back fond memories. Aside from an old Sears
multiband I got from a friend, the RadioShack DX-397 was my very first
shortwave radio. On my 15th birthday, my Dad and a family friend took me to
my hometown's RadioShack and picked it up for $40. I loved that radio.
Unfortunately, it wasn't able to pick up many stations over the years, but
it was great when it worked. My dad still has that radio along with a
Grundig Mini World 300 that I gave him 3 years ago.
Wander Lucio Gomes: Amigo. Qual é o Transistor utilizado nesse circuito?
A Ebel: How do you connect this to a short wave boombox? By the antenna input? Or
do I have to go inside the connect it IF AM output connection?
timeanagain: Thanks for the info. Ordered the kit and will give it a go.

NG9D: For great CW practice I think the TenTec T1056 Receiver Kit would be ideal.
I am making one now for 40m -- in my opinion, 40 m is one of the most
reliable bands for CW/Morse code reception. I have made T1056 boards for 20
and 160m, and they both work great! A 25W soldering iron, diagonal cutters,
small screwdriver and needle nose pliers are about the only tools needed to
build the receiver kit. Practicing CW on a radio you made yourself is a lot
of fun! 73 de NG9D . .

NG9D: Vielen Dank Radio macht Spaß 73 de Lynn NG9D
leiderwanwer reises: ei amigo vc me mandaria esse esquema OFB te agradeço ficou muito bom
Shortwave68: Very interesting video! Good job! Greetings from Germany!!
A Ebel: I got this kit, but cannot get it demodulate SSB signals, because the
transistor that came with the kit went missing. I used a PN2222A NPN
transistor and it's oscillating, but it's tuning narrow. Do I need to use
the required transistor called the 2N4124? The radio I am using is the
S450DLX with a 455 kHz output jack.
NG9D: OH2FFY DE NG9D Hi Greg, I had to *edit* that part to keep my video
"politically correct" ;-) 73 Lynn NG9D . .
NG9D: Amigo. O transístor usado neste circuito é NPN TT25054 (substituto para
MPS6514). 73 Lynn NG9D
