J-Walker Loose Coupler Crystal Radio – Kit


The Galena Century Radio (GCR) J-Walker Loose Coupler Crystal Radio – Kit builds to a fully functional Loose Coupler Radio.  The J-Walker has three 10 Point Rotary Switches that connect to 20 Taps on the Primary Coil and 10 Taps on the Secondary Coil.  The Secondary Coil slides on Brass Rails for full motion in relation to the Primary Coil.  Brass Binding Posts are used as the contact points for the Phones, Aerial, Earth, and Germanium Diode.  A specially designed Brass Crystal Detector provides a reliable and attractive contact point between the Cat’s Whisker and Galena Crystal.  The J-Walker is enclosed in either an American Walnut, Tropical Walnut, or Hard Maple box that measures 9 3/4″W x 7 3/4″D x 8 3/4″H.  The J-Walker comes completely disassembled awaiting your preferences for fit and finish.  The Builder should have some confidence in their basic carpentry (fitting, gluing, clamping, and sanding wood) and soldering skills.
