We will NOT be meeting in person at the Senior Center until further notice.
PART member Andy (KB1OIQ) will give a talk about a 1920s radio receiver architecture called a “regenerative receiver”.  Andy built one of these from scratch based on a simple schematic.  He used old parts obtained from NearFEST and other flea markets.  The radio receives the AM Broadcast Band and shortwave frequencies up to 10 MHz.  It additionally receives sideband and CW.  Like all regenerative receivers of the day, it requires 3 hands to tune.
The Nano-VNA presentation originally scheduled has been re-scheduled for the January 18 meeting.
See you Tuesday!
George K1IG
President, PART of Westford
