Well, at least noise came out of the speaker today. :)
This is the radio I'm building in my Advanced Circuit Analysis class. I thought I'd post a picture showing its progress from time to time so y'all can see what I'm doing.
We're building the AM side first, then we'll build the FM part. What we've done so far is solder in the battery bracket, the ON/OFF volume knob, the FM/AM switch, the speaker, the earphone jack and assorted resistors, capacitors, an integrated circuit and a couple of jumper wires.
Pretty dang cool if you ask me.
