Re: Regenerative receiver thoughts
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I was reading the tale of a ham in the late 20's (I think) who traveled from Florida to the Rockies and was operating a Regen Receiver. The tale is in Ade Weiss's book "A history of QRP" under the title "The Pacos River" neat tale and real interesting that he was using "separates". As I said the Regen receiver and a simple transmitter.
Now somewhere I got some circuits for Regen receivers hmmm, gonna have to dig and see what I can come up with. This is a real interesting thread.
As an aside, in the UK in the 60's and 70's Regen receivers were almost banned by the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications because they said that the radiation from the antenna of such a receiver was detrimental to reception of the broadcast stations of the day. They were never actually banned but if interference was reported and a local ham happened to have a Regen set then that got the blame automatically.
Lets keep this going and it'll be interesting to see where it leads.
