You have my interest - because I'm currently smashed (my wife won a freebie at Strada in Hitchin, and they were very generous with the plonk). Which book?

It was The Newnes Short Wave Manual, by F. J. Camm (brother of the more famous Sidney wot designed the 'Awker 'Urricane).

Don't give away the ending

Not really a page turner as it happens.

But I was contemplating making a valve TRF wireless as a demonstrator, in a fit of insanity...
Of course! How silly of me not to guess! :)

Zeity, on a slightly related note. I am very sad because I have moved into a building with very poor am reception, and I am unable to listen to the worldservice.

Is an external am antenna the only solution?

Though I think it's broadcast on the web too...

It is indeed: BBC World Service (http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/)

Though it must be said, that it doesn't have the wonderful redolence of hot valves and fading over that medium....

Depends on your computer and connection.

That's just gotta stay.

I couldn't delete the picture of a motherboard with a valve on it. :D
