Default Re: More Chinese AM radio kits

What a shame so many of these very affordable Chinese radios don't work, or take fairly detailed electronics knowledge to get going.

They should be an ideal source of encouragement to young electronics enthusiasts. But how many keen youngsters have become disillusioned, disappointed and put off the whole electronics field, because they or some well-meaning friend bought something that turns out to be complete c**p. It was possibly excusable in the early days of transistors, but not in 2018 for goodness sake.

It doesn't exactly inspire confidence does it?
