The Authentic Radiomann Kit. Recreate your very own German radio set, complete with vacuum tubes, coils, antenna, capacitors and other super geeky electri-wiz stuff. Receives Medium and Shortwave broadcasts, but don’t hold out too much hope for KTVW 94.7 The Wave, will ya? $119.95.
Unlike other kits, the Radiomann allows hobbyists to assemble an updated version of the original and conduct over 30 educational radio experiments (including Morse Code reception, feedback manipulation, and seeking overseas transmissions) not typically available to radio novices who’ve grown up “online.” The set includes the tube, coils, antenna, headphones, capacitor, dials, transformer, and precision controls for volume, antenna connection and placement, feedback, frequency, intentional interference, capacitor tuning, and more.
