What better way to enjoy shortwave listening than with a receiver you have built yourself. Introduced in 2003, the KRC-2 has proved a very popular kit. Referred to in the USA as a “Regenerode”. Unlike most regenerative receivers the regeneration setting is not affected by receiver tuning or antenna coupling. The regenerative receiver operates at 10.7Mhz  and tuning is accomplished in the mixer/oscillator that precedes it. This board comes pre-constructed in the fully assembled case. Taking the stress out of the build. The case surround is ready for you to paint in a colour of your choice. The regenerative receiver is assembled on a single printed circuit board. The receiver has only one transistor ( 2N3904 ) and one integrated circuit ( LM386 ). Bringing the project within the capabilities of most constructors. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to view videos of the receiver working.
