Re: Consolidated Murania Mods


Using the wire that comes with the kit I reduced mine to 52 turns and the dial seems to be accurate, at least at with the local 1400 kHz station. Fwiw my AADE meter measured ~210uH. 

I changed Q1 to a BC550C and it works ok, the “beta” on my transistor tester was 483 for the BC550C and 212 for the 2N3904. It might have been a little bit louder but it was certainly not striking (the body of the BC550 has to be turned 180 degrees to get the leads right).
