Warranty and Support Information


Support for the kit is by email at wn5y@yahoo.com. Return emails will be prompt except for times that I am traveling.

Please Note: The warnings, cautions, and instructions discussed in the instruction manual cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur.

It must be understood by the builder/operator that common sense and caution are factors which cannot be built into this product, but must be supplied by the builder/operator.

Build the kit with SAFETY in mind and click here to read the Safety Precautions for the kit.


This kit is sold with a 90 day limited warranty. Any defective parts returned during the warranty period will be replaced free of charge. Replacement parts are warranted for the remaining portion of the original warranty period.

Personal Note

This receiver has been made to be as easy as possible to build, diagnose, and align as I could conceive.

If you are unsure of your ability to build this kit, try building the B & E Receiver Kit first. This kit is an expanded version of the B & E kit, using the same superheterodyne theory. A thorough study of the Beginner's and Experimenter's Kit will help you prepare to build and understand this kit.

Soldering errors will account for 99% of the problems with this kit, so please be careful with your soldering.

I have a great list of soldering tutorials on my links page, please check them out if you have not done much soldering.

If you are a beginner, try and find an Elmer (a helping friend in Ham Radio language) to help you build the kit.

Don't hesitate to email with any comments. Your comments help improve the receiver and the instructions.
