Hi Folks, I've built the Ramsey AM25 transmitter & Zenith transmitter form around the 1935, they're not bad but much better could be done with any out breaking any Laws.

Any idea's on what kits are out there that would do a great job? The best of all ways!


Thank You Tony

What kind of range do you get with it and which frequency are you using?

There are lots of simple homebrew transmitter ideas and discussions in the Homebrew forum.

Fifties, the transmitter you just linked is for 11.7 mHz, not AM BCB.

On the AM BCB transmitter linked to in your first reply, I like how the harmonics of the 655 kHz fundamental which might be broadcasting into the SW bands are listed as a "feature." :roll:

Regardless, thanks for posting it. From ebay's "related items," I picked an "agile" broadcaster for $24 that works from 530 to 1609. We'll see how "harmonical" this one is when I have it built. :)
