Peebles Originals Visitors Pages Section

Hello fellow radio builders and bystanders. For years I have built my radios and shown them off in various venues, including this website. Now I am offering you the chance to show off what you have built. I do have a few suggestions to make this page interesting to us all.

All the pictures and text sent must be original, produced by you. They should not appear elsewhere on the web, if possible. (It gives the meaning to Peebles Originals.) If you have a schematic drawing, that would be outstanding.

Pictures need not be cropped or otherwise adjusted as my webmaster will take care of that. The pictures should be clear and sharp.

Please don't write anything for this section until you have sent in the pictures with a short description of your project. It will be up to me and my webmaster to make the decision for inclusion in this section.

If English isn't your primary language, don't worry. My webmaster said he would fix the grammar or spelling errors.

Students are especially encouraged to participate. If you wish, the webmaster will add your e-mail address (encrypted to prevent spamming) so you may receive comments directly. If you have a website, a link can be added in your presentation.

My e-mail is at the top of my order page. Ok, now on to your projects!

Kent Carmichael's Radio Sculpture

Starting at the bottom there is one variable 250 pF capacitor and a 24 pin rotary dial to individually pick an array of 7 coils. A six pole double throw switch is used to isolate IC chips.
