Foxhole radios

Foxhole radios fold together my interests in radio transmitters and receivers, DIY electronics and finding gems in junk.

They are a crude crystal radio developed during WWII, used for entertainment and scraped from parts: a paperclip for the tuner, a razor blade for the crystal diode, and a safety pin and pencil for the cat’s whisker.

Much like the foxes that slip in and out of the back streets of Brunswick Melbourne, as each radio is made it is installed around the suburb for public discovery and play.
