Old band FM to new band FM ? Not sure how one would try this as the old band FM (45 MHz) may not exist.

Here is an old ARF link to building one of these.

Here is a picture of a tubeless converter built by some on ARF many years ago. Not mine, but a link to it.

The idea is to convert your early, up to 1942 FM radio to receive the new FM band. :lol:
