Group Description

Construction articles for the Deltahet communications receivers, based on the Wadley Loop, were described by Australian amateur Ian Pogson, VK2AZN, in Radio Television and Hobbies and Electronics Australia magazines in the 1960s and 1970s.

These receivers were excellent performers and there were many built all over the world. Although the technology has been well and truly surpassed with phase-locked loops, DDS and SDR, there is still considerable interest in building, resurrecting, or even finishing off receivers that are discovered in dumpers, tips or received as gifts.

This group is provided as a resource for those game enough to consider embarking on such a project to provide parts sourcing or even complete or near complete receivers that may be looking for a more welcoming home.

PDF scans of various articles are available from the Files section under VK3CKC/Valve or VK3CKC/Solid State as appropriate. They have been reproduced by arrangement with SILICON CHIP PUBLICATIONS PTY LTD. Files are a bit large for the moment and may be replaced with smaller versions at a later date to save space.

Hopefully this group will result in the re-birth of a whole rush of Deltahets.
