How about some suggestions for a grid dipper adequate for amateur use. There
appears to be limited choices.

The Millens are still around in the flea markets as is the Boonton that is
ever more sensitive. The TTer who supplied the circuit for the MFJ indicates
it has greater sensitivity. I plan to try it. How can anyone say it doesn't
work without trying it? k7gco
