Model 1056 single band direct conversion receiver kit. This is your best buy, by far, in a ham band direct conversion receiver kit. It has better audio and filtering than the others, and we supply all of the parts and instructions to let you build it for (or change it to) ANY band of your choice. There are only minor coil and capacitor differences in the simple RF input and oscillator sections of a basic direct-conversion receiver. We give you ALL parts needed to build for your choice of 160, 80, 75, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12 or 10 meters! Try out your own multi-band switching ideas. An ideal receiver for use with a homebrew QRP transmitter! MUTE function included for use with your transmitter. Building skill level: Beginner to intermediate. Must be able to solder, read instructions, and use small hand tools.

  1. Great little receiver!

    Posted by Michael Brown KU4UV on 29th Nov 2012

    I really like this receiver kit. I built my receiver for the 40 meter band, and it performs really well. I would recommend this kit to anyone who has intermediate kit building skills. It took a total of maybe 2-3 hours of casual building to complete the kit. The instructions are really clear and precise. I plan on using my 1056 with a QRP transmitter. All I need to do is get my kit mounted into a case. This is really one of the best values going right now as far as amateur radio receiver kits in this price range. I only wish Ten-Tec would come out with more great kits like this. I like the kit so well that I will probably build another one this winter and construct it for the 80 or 160 meter band. Please see my video review of the 1056 by visiting the following link.

    I was really surprised by the performance of the 1056. I am using it as a receiver with my one tube homebrew 3 watt xmtr. It is very stable and the band pass works very well.


  3. Great little reciever kit!

    Posted by Ron Hering on 19th Mar 2012

    This was my first sw kit, went together easily and quickly. I tried most of the bands and finally set it for 40 meters. I have picked up calls from Oregon and Minesota with just a 40 foot wire, from Tulsa OK. Not too bad.


  4. GRADE A + IN KITS

    Posted by PAUL PEDRAZA on 20th Jan 2012

    OVER THE 12 YEARS I'VE BUILT ALL THE BANDS AND PUT THEM IN DIFFERENT CASES . SENSITIVITY IS ALSO RANKS AND IS EXCELLENT ONCE THE UNIT IS TUNED. THESE UNITS SHOULD ALSO BE PUT IN OTHER OUTLETS LIKE RADIO SHACK IN THE KIT SECTION. TEN TEC IS ONE THE TOP KIT BUILDERS THAT KEEPS UP A TRADITION FROM YESTERYEAR.
    I WISH THAT I HAD OF HAD THESE KITS WHEN I GREW UP IN THE 70'S AND 80'S. I GUESS I'M JUST MAKING UP FOR ALL THAT LOST TIME AND HAVING FUN. CHECK OUT YOUTUBE. PP5CW'S CLIPS


  5. Nice DC Receiver Kit

    Posted by NG9D on 9th Dec 2011

    The T1056 is a nice receiver project that is economical, fun and easy to build. You can see how well the little DC receiver plays here:

  6. Great Value - Excellent Performance for a DC Receiver

    Posted by Bob Woish on 2nd Dec 2011

    I like mine. I have used the included parts to change bands, but I find this works best on 40 meters. I have a youtube video online if you want to see it in action. The frequency is quite stable for an analog tuned DC rx, so much so that I have listened in on SSB QSOs for an hour without any need for retuning. I have made a handful of QRP CW contacts using it too. The sound quality is great and the bandwidth control is a plus. I had sworn off DC receivers, but tried this one because of the band versatility. I'm glad I tried one more, this one actually works as they all say they can, but the others are frankly toys. This one is a practical, usable radio. Oh and as a first kit, this would be the way to go. Wish this had been available when I was young and the hobby budget was thin! A lot of fun for the $$$. 73, WB3T.
