Not a radio but radio related and if you want 'lash-up', this one is true "A" grade 'lash'
I kept my first ever attempt at home construction about 5 years ago, I called it the "Franken-mitter" the reason will become clear once you've seen the photo, beware its not for the faint hearted . Despite its hideous appearance It worked and still does, Its a low powered A.M. transmitter based on a TL702 with a BC548 as an amp. I dread to think of all the harmonics its kicking out, though I've never scoped it as at the astime I didn't know how to use one. As you can see from the photo, quite an abomination but I couldn't quite bring myself to destroy the poor creature so it sits dribbling in the corner of the workshop. My next project four years later and one I was quite pleased with was the crusty function gen
, a much better outcome.
