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]

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.

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]

The car stereos have USB…[Read more]
I see there were some typo errors,the spell checker does not always correct as a person might think it will so I re did the response, sorry for the extra post.
The board comes assembled. I then took the board and modified the audio input by removing two resistors on both the left and right channel which were in originally there to attenuate the…[Read more]
The board comes assembled. I then took the board and modified the audio input by removing two resistors on both the left and right channel which were in originally there to attenuate the audio signal; I do this to give the input more audio gain.
I install EMI filters on both audio inputs and also on the power + and – sides so no EMI will reinter…[Read more]
