My modest loop for 50Mhz, at 8m, just for have fun, hand rotor
Sometimes for low band, , I use 42m of horizontal Long Wire (not in picture)
The capacitors come from radio TSF DUCRETET of 1932, They were perfectly cleaned and tested at high voltage.

Some information on my hobbies
I listening the old world on a radio of 20's, she works very well, even today
I collect old radio TSF, manufactured by company DUCRETET, become DUCRETET Thomson (USA) in 1936
Fast repairing of old TSF (BCL)
Other exemple of complete restoration to the inside & outside of one old BCL DUCRETET of 1926
Power supply in bad state
Checking of all elements : Tubes, resistors, capacitors, electric transformers, various short-circuits
checking of high frequency block & oscillating circuits
checking of electric transformers (voltage, short-circuit), & checking of the valve tube & ballast resistor
Cheking of tubes with METRIX checker
Replacement high voltage capacitors, but I leave the old capacitors to keep original aspect
verification of cabling, all is OK :-))
replacement of tunning scale, very damaged with time
Restoration of the woodwork and front paint
*** 1 week later ***
My BCL with his original loudspeaker
Below, my power supply home made, for the radio battery 20's.
She gives the voltage necessary for my old radio
Some rare tubes of my collection TSF
I make it again, with to tubes of type NOVAL, for saved the rare originals.
