Re: Kid's Telegraph Sounder Kit

This does not need a kit only two keys a battery, wire, and two buzzers and/or LED lights - very simply to make at most a few resistors for the LED lights if you're using a 12V battery (or wall wart)  Or nothing else if you can find 3V buzzers. Oh yes, for a 3V system you'll need two, 2-AA battery holders. Then of course a platform for the key, battery holder, and battery.

- We could make a buzzer using a 555 timer, a few caps & resistors, and a small speaker instead of buying one. It all depends on how simple, few parts, you want to make it.

From here you can get as complex as you want. Or instance instead of wire between the two CW platforms you could use a single fiber optic cable and two splitters to get light coming in to go one way and for light going out to get into the fiber.

Or, oh-man perhaps a very simple CW transmitter/receiver? This would need a kit and make it µQRP? Anyone game to design this one?

I have a scout set circ. 1960. It is plastic rather than wood. You have sounder mode, buzzer mode and and flashlight bulb mode. Made to work with keys wired to each other up to about 50 ft apart. Still works on d cells. Though funky, the keys work well enough that they could be used on the air. Just take the battery out and hook the rig to the clips. Big dis advantage is that the key contact gap is rather wide and non- adjustable

Thanks Thomas,

 

The kit that I remember was a lot like the one in John-KK4ITX's email however I remember it being in shape of a cube - just a framework. Think it needed a D battery. Came with a cheap wood key.  It came in pieces and you had to put it together. Probably a blessing - I remember using it for days, drove both parent crazy with the clacks from wood hitting wood.

 

Isn’t it great having the memories of Christmas presents that taught us something while having fun?

I remember the sets and may have had one. You connected them together with a pair of wires and could communicate back and forth. 
I checked eBay under Kids telegraph sets and came up with a bunch of them. It was a trip down memory lane.
Thanks for the memories so to speak.

so I'm not the only night owl...

Please forgive my frustration.
I was looking at that page, when your e-mail was sent.  Thank you very much.  Tomorrow, we'll see if that old soldering iron still has what it takes.  Then to rework my antenna, it's been so long, since I touched a key.  73s

I never was able to get it going and have it on the back burned ATM. I did make VK3YE's bread board design and have it working on 80 and 40 M. However, that too has an issue with the BD139 getting overly hot and going QRT. This is with a 12V supply. I removed the old transistor, added a 100uh inductor, and changed out the supply to a 9v and it works again. 
However, with the 12v supply I was able to hear my signal on 40M this afternoon. But since moving to the lower power source, I now am not able to hear myself on the "local" SDRs (UT, AZ, CA).

This is good stuff to keep the brain active for sure, 73's.

Everyone needs to take those trips now and again, and here's a great way
to do it:   https://christmas.musetechnical.com/

Depending on your age you should be able to find a "wishbook" you
remember and the pages are searchable if you're impatient. Otherwise you
can just head for the toy section and flip through page by page just
like we did in the old days.    When you get to the science kits, the
name "Remco" will appear frequently and I wore out more than one of
them.   While they were always a bit more "sizzle" than "steak" they
were the introduction for many of us to the world of crystal radios and
morse code (even if sent from a blinker or buzzer!).
