AM Radio Converted to Air Traffic

Post by Gre » Mon, 01 Sep 2003 06:57:44

When I was a kid, I converted a pocket AM radio to listen to Air
Traffic broadcasts. I can no longer find the electronics magazine that
showed how to do that conversion. Does anyone know of a website which
explains how? I remember a coil had to be opened a little, but I don't
recall the exact details. TIA

Budget Electronics...1982.
Convert your am/fm pocket radio into an aircraft scanner.
Check your e-mail, I'll try and send the 3 jpg;s.   Let me know if you
receive them.

interesting, any chance of posting them to enable others to download them.

I sure would like to see them myself and have a go
