Default Practical Wireless? Transistor Circuits book.

Back in the early to mid 1960s one of the electronics magazines, probably Practical Wireless, but maybe PE included as a freebie a small booklet about 4 inches by 5 inches containing several circuits using the then comparitively new transistors.

One of the circuits in the book was a reflex receiver using a ferrite rod aerial and an AF117 transistor. I built this receiver and it worked very well. Alas the receiver was thrown out some years ago.

As a nostalgia trip I'd like to build another of these receivers and do a better job.

Does anyone have a copy of the book they could scan the circuit from for me please?

Presented free with the June 1966 issue of PW here's the reflex circuit. Apologies for the poor edges I had used sellotape to stick it back together.

This booklet was the second in a series of three on Valve circuits, Transistor circuits and Testing Transistor and Valve circuits. I have all three and can scan them if anyone is interested

Thanks Keith. I knew someone would come up trumps. June 1996 then. I'd have been 15 then and this was the first transistor circuit I built from scratch.

I hope I'll be starting a new thread in Home Brew Equipment when I've built the circuit.
