II put my Radio Shack transmitter module away up in the rafters, and I just connected my 8 track player amplifier output to the speaker in my collector tomb stone radio, that way I will have no problem meeting the part 15 rules and regulations- Thats the way I did it years ago so that’s the way I will end up doing it, put the tape player in a bo…[Read more]
Looks like I might as well go back to the days of my Lafayette AM broadcaster, you had to wrap the antenna wire from the broadcaster around the radio in order to get the signal. That should be safe to use that… Too bad the goofs who come out of Cuba or the islands some place who move to Florida think they can just go on the air to get their…[Read more]
I am going to try to improve the audio response of the TH 5- I know that in the past someone had posted instructions on how to do this, along with some photos and I think showing the caps that need to be changed on the TH 5 board. I have seen a few things on this but none have been very clear for example one post said to change these values…[Read more]
Need some information on how to change my logo when I post. I went into “members” and changed my picture there, it comes up each and every time I check my “profile” but when I make my posts it still shows the old “RADIO JOE” in red, logo… not sure what if I need to do something to make it show up on my posts or not.. Like I said it a…[Read more]
I listened to the improved IAM radio transmitter audio on the web link, sounded bit muffled to me, I don’t know, could been the bass boost they incorporated- I use an equalizer to kick up the bottom end on my TH transmitters, but most of the time I go back to the standard response the TH 5 gives me.
There is nothing I have built, tried, or us…[Read more]
I have two long wire ten foot antennas in the attic for two different AM broadcast band transmitters. I have one long wire ten foot antenna mounted outside of the house. Al l antennas are horizontal antennas.
The outside antenna is made from 12 gauge stranded wire and is only about 8 feet off the ground, maybe 9 in one part.…[Read more]
I thought the review was good, the person did a nice job of letting people know how things went. I thought the audio quality was good! the hum he talks about thats normal, I have it here on all my AM transmtters, has to do with house wiring and the rf mixing with line current in the house wiring. I might have t add this transmitter to my…[Read more]
Has anyone built the Vectronics VEC 1290 K AM transmitter?
This Vectronics VEC 1290 kit a simple low cost LC no PLL transmitter and looks good. I am Just wondering how stable it is as far as holding frequency and also audio quality. I checked the schematic and there is not much out of the norm for small transmitters like this, and it has to be…[Read more]
All you need to do to tune with out the auto tune feature is select on the back the external antenna setting.
After doing that connect to the external antenna connector (F59) center pin a short lead going into a loading coil
For a fast loading coil, what works good is a ferrite loop stick antenna (adjustable) the kind found in crystal…[Read more]
All is interesting! I had an uncle who gave me a old radio I think it was from a DeSoto, I connected it up to a storage battery in my parents basement at the time, I was about 14 years old. I remember the songs I heard on it, that was in 1960.
Like the rest of you, I learned a lot from that radio. I don’t have it anymore, not sure what I ever did…[Read more]

But normally all your locations show up in the search box and you have to look to see where you store…[Read more]
I can relate to the posts as far as older radio sound, now people walk around looking at a smart phone and they think that’s something. When i was 17 I had my car, the car radio had a 6X9 speaker in the dash, sounded like a jukebox and it was AM only too,…that radio was my connection to the world, and my best friend on top of it. Kids today w…[Read more]
Well, far as materials, and how I went about it, that setup was built up as I went along and added equipment, so it was a build as you go process. If I had a choice I would put it in some kind of cabinet that you could get at the back of, right now if you have a bad connection on the bottom some place you have to almost pull all the stuff out …[Read more]
