The Cub Scouts Ozark Trails Pack 83 pack leader asked me to

help with the crystal radio project. I was very interested to

help because crystal radio is how I got started with radio and



The boys each wound their own coil on a PCV pipe form, then

connected it to a 1N34A germanium diode for a detector, a

crystal earphone to listen with, and an antenna wire we ran

outside, and a ground wire inside the building. It worked!

The volume level was very low, but we could hear the local

AM radio station KTTR (1490 kHz).
