Haynes FM Retro Radio Electronic Kit
• Create a fun retro radio and listen to your favourite FM music stations
• There’s no need to solder the components, as they all plug into the breadboard
• Learn how an FM radio works
• Create with 18 parts
• Fun for ages 14+
• Requires a single 9V battery (not included Order Code A97UT)What can I do with this kit?
Build your own FM radio complete with tuning and volume knobs. Listen to your favourite FM station with a built-in speaker, and enjoy the retro look of the box – which doubles as an enclosure to protect your kit. With 18 parts, this is a fun kit to assemble and learn about how circuits are made.
What can I learn with this kit?
This retro radio kit shows you how each part of the circuit works individually and a part of the whole, and comes with an instruction manual that helps you with both. The circuit uses an aerial to capture a sound or channel from the radio waves that surround us, and then boosts the strength of the signal. Once it is boosted, it translates the audio into an electronic signal that the speaker can then use to produce a sound.
How easy is it to assemble?
This is a great kit for those looking for a practical introduction to electronics. No soldering is involved, as all of the components just slot into the breadboard. This is great for those just starting, as you can move the components around without having to desolder them. All you need to get this project running is a radio signal and a 9V (PP3) battery (not included Order Code L46AL)
