Are you looking for an EDUCATIONAL project for your son or daughter, grandchild, girl or boy scout, or wayward kid in the neighborhood?-or even something for youself?
Introducing the ElmerRadio! Crystal Radio Kit-a simple AM BCB (540-1710 KHz) crystal receiver that gives remarkably high performance in many areas with a simple indoor antenna (an outdoor antenna will give better results). Based on a much beloved classic design from the 50's, your kit includes everthing you need to get started but earphones (an inexpensive set of stereo earbuds work just fine), an antenna (an indoor or outdoor antenna is required), and a few simple tools. Even lead-free solder is included.
You get a kit made from top quality parts-no junk! The laminated front panel is nicely printed in a nostalgic color scheme. Even a nice blue enclosure box is included.
Most of all you get a great learning experience as you build your kit. A well illustrated, 12 page full color step-by-step manual comes with your kit. It includes soldering instructions and detailed assembly drawings. A glossary and "Guided Tour of Your ElmerRadio" gives you a swift and simple introduction to radio theory. The section on "How Radio Works" will be particularly helpful to curious beginners. Tips on selecting earphones and setting up an antenna and ground system are there. Plus a gallery of photos of the "insides" of an assembled radio is included to help you along if you have a problem.
Your family and friends will be impressed. You get to show them a high quality radio that really works and get to brag about your accomplishment.
YOU COULD SPEND ALMOST AS MUCH FOR A CD, OR MUCH MORE FOR A VIDEO GAME FILLED WITH VIOLENCE AND MAYHEM. THE ELMERRADIO IS A GREAT BARGAIN-GOOD FOR YOU AND YOUR KIDS!
