 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
