See if you can get in touch with Dave Cripe, NM0S.

His email is NM0S@...

He designed this little bugger, I bet he can get you kick started.

It might be best to email him direct.
Be patient, he is pretty busy.

I ran the troubleshooting voltages in the Assembly Manual.  The battery voltage iws 8.434v.  The following voltages are in list order:
Looks like the voltages on the collectors of Q1 and Q3 are high.  I have gone through the soldering on the regenerative circuit and touched up each one.  Still no regeneration.  I replaced D1, but don't have (or can't find) 1N914 diodes.  Haven't pulled and tested them yet.
Any suggestions?

OK, got the little amp installed and working.  After replacing all the transistors, I hooked up my signal injector to the antenna end and got a tone out of the speaker.  However, I do not have any regeneration, so I hooked it up to my antenna.  Still no joy.  Absolotutely no regeneration.  I have the batteries out being recharged so I can get some voltage measurements.  I would appreciate it if one of you more knowedgable members would give me a list of tests to carry out to see what the problem is.  BTW, I removed, checked for good, and replaced the coil, so I'm comfortable it is ok.  The voltage changes on the regen pot when turned, so the pot is ok.  Where do I start looking now?  Dale
