I am looking for others interested in working through Ronald Quan's book "Build Your Own Transistor Radios" (Amazon Link below).

I am using LTSpice to model Quan's circuits and KiCad pcb layout software to implement Quan's circuits as pcbs. I have made one board myself (toner transfer) and had one done by a pcb fabrication house.

I'd like to better understand Quan's circuits. He has a wealth of practical experience. His book is written for people who know somewhat more than circuit basics. I am an EE who did not do any circuit design and building in my jobs.

An ongoing discussion with a group would be welcome.

I just looked at a review. That is a great book, although I do not want to spend the money and already know most of the concepts there. For AM work I have had much fun with the TA7642, which can work up into the short wave bands and support a nice direct conversion receiver. I am designing and building out a TDA7012 fm radio for a childrens build it project and can send you my results including circuit board files if you are interested.
