I like the tube stuff, but then again, I grew up with making Heathkits, which I still operate (SB-220) and are still on the air!  I just bought a very nice Heathkit Two (2-meter AM QRP) with mic and xtal, for $10.00; the tubes and xtal are worth more than that!  Bring on the tube kit twins! 73, KO8S, Karl

Good afternoon all I have a question and hope someone in the club can help. I was watching Ham Nation last night and in Bob Heils segment he was demonstrating his new Ameco AC1  transmitter kit. As part of the segment he showed a web page that shower a receiver kit to match the AC1 transmitter. The model # appears to be RX1. I can’t find any info on it and wonder if anyone out there has information. The price for the AC1 is over 200.00 so it is a little expensive, but I think it would be cool to operate a vintage tube station  that I built. I have built a lot of regen solid state receivers and have looked at low voltage tube regen designs. The one I think I’ll build uses a 12BA6 in a Hartley circuit with regen control by a pot in the screen. Maybe a good kit idea for the group with a matching tube xmitter. Anyway any thoughts?
