Video: Stephen’s Poldhu Radio Kit


Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Stephen Cooper, who recently shared a video on the SWLing chatroom:

I’m a sucker for cute radio kits, so I purchased one of these from the UK-based seller on eBay as well. There are two kit packages: one with the receiver only, another with the receiver, amplifier and speaker. Shipping is free–even to the US–and pricing is fair (19 – 25 GBP or roughly $30-38 US)

Readers: if you haven’t checked out the SWLing chat room, I would encourage you to do so! There’s almost always someone there and, many evenings, readers share reception reports in real time. Click here to check out the chat room.

Want to chat? Check out the new SWLing Post Chat Room!

ChatRoomSWLing Post reader, CJ, recently offered to host a chat room here on our site––quite a generous offering. I’d thought about implementing a radio-themed chat room in the past, but had to be realistic about it, as my schedule simply doesn’t allow for much chat room time. Still, I like the idea of real-time conversations.

With well over 2,000 daily unique visitors to the SWLing Post alone, there is certainly a strong community that may also appreciate the chance to chat with each other in real time. To that end, I have just published a new chat room page with CJ’s code. You’ll find the page in the tabs on the SWLing Post banner above, or by clicking here:


Let me know what you think, and if you enjoy having a chat room. In the beginning there may be very little activity, but if the chat room is truly engaging for our readers, we’ll continue to offer it!
