GM Guys, This might be a good receiver for your build. Dave has a regen design that was published in Oct 95 73 Magazine, and FAR has a board for it. See info below, and the 73 article here. http://archive.org/stream/73-magazine-1995-10/10_October_1995#page/n27/mode/2up
HIGH PERFORMANCE REGEN ARMSTRONG S/W RECEIVER BY CRIPE
Customer Comment: I built the Armstrong Update regenerative receiver from Dave Cripe's article. As promised, the 1496 detector produced uncommonly smooth regeneration control and his use of a 324 op amp as both an audio filter and a push-pull gives adequate, clean audio. Like other regenerative circuits, this one is sensitive to its surroundings and benefits from good shielding and layout after the board is working. The Far Circuits board worked the first time but care should be used to avoid control wires crossing each other as they leave it.
GL and have fun.
Real radios weigh less than a pound.
I love this radio stuff !
