Subject: Radio Tranceiver Kit

Post:

Tappers,

Do any of you have a source for a radio transceiver kit--as in the kind
that has to be assembled from parts. I'm looking for something that could
be built by high school students and then used as a walkie-talkie,
although I'm not necessarily going for high power/long range. It should
come with good literature that gives detailed, step-by-step instructions
(I assume it would have to be "aligned," although with modern IC
chip-based systems, perhaps this is not necessary.) Ideally, the manual
would also explain how it works, so as to be a valid learning experience,
and not just an exercise in soldering--although I suppose I could provide
this info independently. I really do not care what portion of the radio
band (electromagnetic spectrum) is used, or whether I might technically
be violating FCC regulations.

Best wishes,
