Group Description

In 1954 an article in Short Wave Magazine in Britain described to readers how they could make their own transistors. This idea has been revived in recent years, thanks to the books of Pete Friedrich (The Voice Of the Crystal and Instruments Of Amplification. On 11th March 2010 Practical Wireless under the editorship of Rob Mannion, G3XFD published an article entitled "Making Home Brew Transistors in the 1950s" by Bill Jarvis, GM8APX, Mr Jarvis was a pupil at Stowe School in the 50s and his physics master John Osborne G3HMO was and is (he is happily still alive) a very practical man....as you will see if you read the article.

This group is intended to aid would be transistor manufacturers at home, as a place to post problems, and, hopefully, solutions. There is a library of interesting articles and links to sites of interest
