To teach students basic radio theory and history, and basic fabrication techniques for electric circuits.
During the workshop the students build a high quality Short Wave receiver. They learn to mount electrical components on a metal chassis. They will identify, mount, and solder electronic components to a printed circuit board then wire the circuit board to the controls. Finally they will learn how to operate the radio, and calibrate the frequency dial.
