What value for money. I bought this kit for my grandson as an introduction to shortwave radio. Assembly is straightforward and the step by step instructions are simple enough for the novice to follow although you do need to have some experience soldering. Like all regen receivers tuning takes some practice but once mastered you will be amazed at the performance of this simple receiver when connected to just 30 foot of wire (and its much more fun). The instructions contain useful tips on how to add RF Gain and fine tuning controls. Once done this little radio gives expensive sets a good run for their money.
If you are starting out in radio construction then this is a great first kit. At less than $40 you wont find anything better on the market at this price.
