I built my first razor blade radio in first grade... my mom almost had a heart attack! It was trash bound. She promptly replaced it with THIS "safer" crystal radio, with a good ground and a wire running from the house to the barn as an antenna. SO, this is the total of my crystal radio experience...
I picked up quite a bit with it, hey it was fun! I'm sure it's not the pinnacle of crystal radio design... LOL The current batch of ultralight radios are about as low as I care to go. I'll stick with my PL-380! (for now) That said, to each their own! If there is a "super" crystal radio design out there I might try it too.

Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.
