Do you know the English word for "UKW- Pendelempfänger"?
There was no answer to my question in this thread. No chance
for a good...... Google translation!

Hi Joe

UKW = UltraKurzWellen = 30 MHz - 300 MHz ( related to = FM 87,5 MHz - 108,0 MHz )

Fortunately danes are forced, to learn both english and german language in school, so after what i've learned, the translation should be something like:

kurzwellen = ( kortbølge ) ( shortwave )
pendel/oszillieren/schwingung = ( pendulende/oscillerende/svingende ) ( pendulum/oscillating )
empfänger = ( modtager ) ( receiver )

Danke und viele grüße nachbar :up:

...nur mehr "FM- oscillating receiver".

oszillieren ( oscillating ) = pendel ( pendulum )

All of a sudden Ohm's law sounds simple?? German to English, not so simple. But the translation makes sense.

Hi all,

a technical discussion in DIY in English is on the
one hand, very exciting, but it shows me too, where my limit in specific vocabulary is.

Thank you

Joe

You won´t find such a simple circuit with outstanding performance running a single tube.

Cheers!

That circuit is downright sexy! :wizard:

But... can anyone see why this wouldn't be popular without say, an RF amp before it? Hint: The answer is in the L.O. frequency 8-)

Cheers!

Though I believe the "literal" translation (Pendelempfänger) has been given, I believe what was in fact being referenced is "superhetrodyne".


Yeah, I know... A little late in the conversation....... so what else is new ;)

Hi Patrick!

Welcome to this wonderful forum, with plenty of nice people!

I did this radio some time ago, it really surprised me! So small and simple and good performance!
