Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Franz Miller, who writes:
“I’ve pasted a link below to the webpage at Conrad in Germany for yet another Franzis radio kit; no idea how good it is, but it looks neato-retro to me. Covers longwave, medium, shortwave VHF, & UHF, allegedly. Price on Conrad’s website is around 69 Euros.”
I truly appreciate the reminder, too, that I have a previous model Franzis kit somewhere in storage that I need to unearth and build! I assume this new Franzis model also has a cardboard chassis.
Update–Tomas adds the following comment:
Here is a link to the Franzis site where there are several pictures and also a two minute video demonstrating the kit.
Of course, for SW it only supports the 41-meter band.
