Making a Transistor Radio is a book written by George C. Dobbs, with illustrations by B. H Robinson, and published by Wills and Hepworth Ltd. This wonderful book is to introduce a novice beginner into the world of radio engineering and begins from simple steps. Most radio engineers today will remember seeing this book at their local lending library and making the radio when they were young, and if they did not, then they will want to make it today to relive their youth.
The book begins with building a simple crystal receiver set, and then additional transistor stages are included to build a one-transistor radio, two-transistor radio and finally a three-transistor radio capable of driving a loudspeaker. This complete introductory book explains the basic principles of radio engineering including what regeneration is and how it operates. Back when I was a young whippersnapper, I found it most helpful to understand.
