1924 Crosley 52SD with Brandes high impedance headphones. Original cabinet. Ran a 50 foot outdoor antenna and a very good ground for this radio. It's pretty sensitive and fun to listen to. Takes some tweaking while listening but isn't it fun to be interactive with your radio. This is my first regen. It won't be my last, this thing is a hoot. Simple yet very effective.

Power is supplied to the filaments by 4-1.5v aa cells. The "B" power is 5-9v batteries wired together for the 45v side and a homemade ac/dc converter for the 90v side.

    I think that this is gorgeous as a design object!
