This is the same as Elenco Model # AM-550K (available here), but substitutes tansistors instead of the IC.
The unique design of this kits allows you to place the parts over its corresponding symbol in the schematic drawing on the surface of the printed circuit board during assembly. This technique maximizes the learning process while keeping the chances for an assembly error at a minimum.
Kit includes an assembly, lesson and theory of operation manual. The actual assembly is broken into simple sections. Each section should be completely tested before moving on. This reduces difficult troubleshooting associated with many similar kits. Includes practical hi-tech blue PC board with the schematic printed on the surface. The manuals are easy to understand, no previous knowledge of electronics is necessary. A special molded plastic base provides the necessary support to use the radio in any location, displaying the work achievement of the student.
Training course divided into 5 lessons: Audio Amplifier, Detector, IF Amplifier, Oscillator and Mixer - integrated circuit technology now included. "Superheterodyne" designed to receive standard AM (amplitude modulation) broadcast frequencies. Includes radio mounting stand.
Requires 1 9V Battery
