Nice thread! Motivating.
Our local club build of v4 ubitx delayed a host of projects - so just getting back. It was nifty to hang out with more than 2 dozen builders, many who had never built a rig before. Of course the v4 needs a lot of care - mods for spurs etc. Mine has a nifty AGC made from an LED and a photoresistor that works amazing (and makes light!).
Just a couple days ago replaced a volume pot on a cheap reproduction AM/FM radio. Why do I mention this? A lot of disassembly to get to it. Board with a few cheap parts on it buried inside -- wow the sound of a big speaker in a wood cabinet - this thing sounds great (the original pot was always bad).
Built a QCX+ and companion PA for 80m -- very nice rig and the new version is easier with larger part spacing.
Put up the short 250+ foot Beverage that just fits in my yard - at times it is amazing, and often gentler on the ears.
Turned on my WBR regen for 40m - this thing is amazing even though it does not look like much. I can copy CW signals well enough to QSO with it. One of a few regens homebrewed -- maybe someday I can graduate to superhets - I have a HYCAS and a few other modules sitting on a breadboard -- and I need to finish assembly of the now-obsolete PHSNA that is mostly assembled.
I am fixing a variable voltage power supply built from QST nearly 40 years ago - it never would reach above 9 volts so maybe a bad lm317 we will see.
Have some stuff gathered for a tube Tx to 'replace' the xtal controlled tuna-tin+mosfet I used with my first receiver.
enjoy your efforts.
