I haven't made one of these in awhile. 
I used an old coil form from a 1920s TRF , and old post marked "aerial " and some misc components that are modern .
This is just a trial run to verify operation before cosmetics.
The box to the left is a LM 386 chip and power supply I use for audio to check operation before any more work . It will have its own chip eventually.
The coil is 5 winds primary ( antenna) and 9 turns secondary on a 4 inch. 
Here it is pulling in WWCR sign on   Also heard WTWW playing music on 5085 , it seems to have pretty good spacing.
Dx machines they are not, but fun to build.
I am on new radio restriction, so work was after hrs on the down low

At 2216 UTC , Tater Patch apparent on 1630  after not being heard here for a few days. Playing White Stripes Seven Nation Army.
Reception is poor so far tonight
0200 UTC + no signal

Also heard parts of a unid TIS on 1630 a few days ago with only KCJJ in the background. The only clues were " Call West Virginia 511" , some other refs to I -79 or I 76 and followed by a YL that definitely had the WVA trademark accent.
I searched the TIS list , didnt find anything for WVA on 1630 and gave up, but it would have been nice to id.

At 0200 UT  id as WPEX Blackstone Va with live DJ into Boston/ more than a feeling.

Indoor DX380 on internal ferrite with rolling 30 second fades but quite strong on peaks - some of the best audio/signal from them ive heard minus the fades

WPTX Lexington Park MD  with a great all water path signal into Va Beach tonight, listening on a Hallicrafters S38 using what's left of the HF antenna at 0210 UTC playing the Carpenters Superstar , later into Gordon Lightfoot / Rainy day people and Bread/ Aubrey.
Some great old tunes esp nice to hear Bread over the air, who really never got full recognition during a time when a lot of rock was coming out -for their all but forgotten musically brilliant catalog of timeless , often sad, songs of unrequited love.

In my opinion.
