Can't be that much wrong with it. . .
A Very very low output signal generator with a single NPN transistor.
Does it have 3 volts across the collector resistor?

Maybe you are expecting way to much from it? It probably can
easily be loaded down enough to shut it off. RF will be very weak
coming off of the 3906.

I picked one these up at a hamfest last
year.  Noting that it didn't
work, I set it on the shelf and didn't
look back until yesterday.

Digging into it, I found the 3904 was
dead so replaced it with one that
checked good on my M-cubes tester. 
But no joy.  I've gone over
everything I could think of including
solder joints and correct parts in
the correct places, but and conquer
this little beast. (I have other
names for it also :o)

So just sitting here listening to
Waylon Jennings and scratching my
head.  Anyone have any ideas, or have
one of these that actually works?

I love this radio stuff.
Back to the bench, Winter is too
valuable to waste.
