One of the Johnny's had one in stock when I first started back as a BAR. It was faded and dusty.

Here's a quick project update:

1. The coils are finished.
2. The Modulator Section was tested on a breadboard and is working.

Next steps are to build out the RF Section.

Please see the Build Log for a more technical discussion of this project.

I’m not an electronics guy, but I really, really appreciate what you are attempting to do and I wholeheartedly hope you succeed. It can be hard enough sometimes to get some of these vintage rocketry items ‘up and running’ even when you have all the original parts on hand. But to basically recreate the entire product is quite an undertaking.

Keep us posted on how it comes out!
