A scratch build Wilderness radio SW-20

This is an amazing build of a favourite of mine, the Wilderness radio SW-20. It shows just how neat and effective ‘ugly’ construction can be. In my opinion it is far from ugly!

I would love another but they are no longer available. Maybe this is what I should do over the winter – build one!

It is interesting that he started with the case and cut the copper clad board to size. It seems like a very ordered way of working.

I had one of these radios a few years back and made many contacts on it. I did some mods but cannot remember what the function of the extra knob on the left side.
