New Franzis shortwave radio kit


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.

Spread the radio love

    One of my readers noticed they will not ship to US or Canada?
    If this is true, that is very unfortunate.
    There is a growing thirst for nostalgic radios, especially kits…
    I would hope they would reconsider offering kits to both, since there are many who want them & would gladly pay shipping to get one!
    Afterall, success is driven by sales. Selling more kits is good, for success & for the pocketbook, to make more kits!?!

      Hehe, now you know how it is for many people in Europe trying to buy from American companies or sellers 🙂

      However, you can buy directly from Franzis instead of, they do ship worldwide and accept credit cards. You just have to brush up your german or use google translate.
