Homebrew is an amateur radio slang term for home-built, noncommercial radio equipment. Some items can be home-brewed at similar or lower cost than purchased equivalents. In the early years of amateur radio, long before factory-built gear was easily available, hams built their own transmitting and receiving equipment, known as homebrewing. Homebrewing was often encouraged by amateur radio publications. Today, only a minority of hams own and operate completely homebrew or kit-built amateur stations.

Author's note: I originally began this "how-to" around or so.

I've finally gotten a nice little digital camera that's allowed me to start adding pictures to the webpage to spruce it up a little I take pictures with my Iphone now, like the rest of the world. But the photos are not as nice as the digital camera 's Hope you find them helpful in building your own versions of the simple radio circuits here!
