A Potpourri of Audio Amplifiers  By N1HFX

“I intentionally avoided the use of IC amplifiers to provide a real learning experience for audio amplifier design. Although many IC amplifiers provide excellent performance at low cost, we need to learn the basics first. I will address IC audio amplifiers in a future article.”

RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics

Some things you can find there -CB & Ham radios, Walkie-talkie (GMRS/FRS) radios and Shortwave & multiband radios.

RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics

The company was started as Radio Shack in 1921 in Boston, Massachusetts, by two brothers, Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, who wanted to provide equipment for the cutting-edge field of amateur, or ham radio.

RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics

Theodore and Milton Deutschmann opened a one-store retail and mail-order operation in the heart of downtown Boston. They chose the name, “Radio Shack,” which was a term for the small, wooden structure that housed a ship’s radio equipment. The Deutschmanns thought the name was appropriate for a store that would supply the needs of radio officers aboard ships, as well as “ham” radio operators.

Nixie Thermostat – A heating and cooling thermostat employing technologies spanning fourty years from the unique Nixie tube display, circa 1960’s, to a PIC 18F microcontroller, circa 2006.

A High-Powered Power Backup Inverter

A High-Powered Power Backup Inverter – The working prototype of the 2 KVA inverter is complete. Fed from an array of lead-acid cells totalling 600 Ah (at 12 Volts), it easily drives real-world loads such as single-phase motors. The inverter has been tested and found to operate at an efficiency of between 71% and 82% driving a variety of both inductive and resistive loads

Dual Polarity Power Supply
Two versions of a dual polarity power supply with printed circuit board artwork. The supplies are built around the popular LM317 & 337 complementary voltage regulators which offer very high ripple rejection as well as short-circuit and thermal protection.
