There has been some messages about making a rig using only home made
components. It would be interesting to know more about what people found and
used to make simple gear during WW2 in prisoner of war camps. I read an article
by someone who had been through this unfortunate experience and had employed an
ordinary light bulb with an 'anode' of foil on the outside. It worked as a
(very inefficient) diode, and was used, if my memory serves me correctly, in a
receiver. Anyone like to try it? But hang on, can we qrpers even consider using
a 60 watt bulb for this - might be classed as QRO!

Have fun
