This year, at the 2014 Dayton Hamvention, I had the pleasure of meeting a number of SWLing Post readers–truly a highlight for me at the convention.
One of the readers I met was Mike Gualtieri (KB3TKG). Mike and I had a great conversation about pirate radio, ham radio and shortwave listening.
I also learned that, one year ago, Mike started MakeRF: a blog devoted to making radios and accessories. He has already documented several savvy projects:
- An LM386 Powered Crystal Radio in an Altoids Smalls Tin
- A Mighty Simple Shortwave Transmitter
- So You Want to Be a Shortwave Pirate
I encourage you to bookmark MakeRF and even give one of these simple projects a go. Many thanks, Mike!
Thanks for the shoutout Thomas! I enjoyed chatting at Dayton. Hope to see you there next year!
