Let's learn about a couple of the primary electronic components - the inductor and the capacitor - by building a working radio from scratch.

We'll get really simple and just use tin foil and wire for this. The only component we'll need to use is a simple diode.

I think you'll have fun watching this one as codefoster does a bit of wood work, a bit of electronics, and a bit of explanation about some fundamental electrical principles.
