April 28, 2010 B-17 Radio Work Day
Carroll and I also spent some time today performing an alignment on the various stages of the BC-348 Receiver. Carroll thinks we may have greatly increased the receiver sensitivity with this simple alignment. Can't wait to hook the antenna up again and test it out.
We're planning to have this reciever running at the special event station for the public to listen to.
We've also been given the okay by the museum to assess the condition of another BC-348 receiver that is currently on static display. The museum has had the reciever for about 10 years and has no idea of it's history or current condition. We'll fix that! We hope to get our first look inside the radio next week.
What a fun project.
