    6m AM Sixbox

    If you are after ideas for a cross town natter box, you may get some ideas
    from my Sixbox. This is not a DX transceiver, but is useful for chatting locally with friends. If you are making several as a winter project, you
    may want to do a PCB, although I did not bother.

    The photo shows one of our grandchildren some years ago. It shows him in my workshop some time ago. He is now a teenager and is not at all interested
    in amateur radio.
