Hop Hays' Modified Bandpass Set
Hop put together his set using a plexiglass chassis that he built. He uses verniers on each of the variable capacitors.One dial is a CD; another was salvaged from a harddrive.
The station seup during the DX contest.
A closer picture of the crystal set.
Two of the rare Fair Radio silver plated caps are in use here!
The phones are Dave Clark elements in shooter muffs.
The set performed poorly with the "old" components, but performed great with the "current" or "new" components.Wire size and toroid selection are critical.
