    I have found some radio receivers I made from EPE magazines back in the 1990s. They all still work apart from the 80 metre receiver from EPE in 1990, I think. This is not available from the publishers any more. The only info I have is the PCB number 920006. This may not mean it is from 1992!

    The radio has a varicap tuner and MCL SBL-1 mixer. I need a copy of the magazine, the article or circuit diagram. Have tried county library, eBay etc. but without success.
    If anyone has made this or can help out, I would be very grateful.
    Thanks

    In reference to this request, I also bought Elektor and ETI mags as well. Could PCB code 920006 be from one of these?

    Can you not post a pic of the gadget?
    Someone may recognise it then.

    Hello,

    As studiot said, post a picture of the PCB.
    There may be some brand related marks on it, that can be recognized by some of our members.
    Also the way a PCB is created tells something about the publisher.

    I actually meant a pic of the radio which might be easier to identify than the pcb.

    As a matter of interest EPE did not exist until 1992, so please check you magazines, dates and any other data that might help.

    I still have some old issues of PW and PE. I guess what you are looking for is not in any of those?

    OK, tracked it down to Elektor, Jan 1992. PCB code number search on their webpage. I had thought from EPE.

    Do you mean this article -?

    It is a 20m receiver not an 80m one - read the first paragraph.

    A PM with an email addy that can receive jpegs gets you a scan of the article (6 pages)
