A tuning coil
You can wind one by hand, but in this project we use a muchsmaller coil with a ferrite rod inside, from our catalog

An MK484-1 AM Radio Integrated Circuit
This is the heart of the radio. We carry it in our catalog
A tuning capacitor
We use a variable capacitor, from 0 to 160 picofarads. We haveit in our catalog
A 100,000 ohm resistor
This resistor will have four colored bands on it. The colors will be brown, black, yellow, and gold.
A 1,000 ohm resistor
This resistor will also have four colored bands on it. The colorswill be brown, black, red, and gold.
A 0.01 microfarad capacitor
This capacitor will be marked something like ".01M" or "103".
Two 0.1 microfarad capacitors
These capacitors will be marked something like ".1M" or "104".
A 1.5 volt battery(optional) A 1.5 volt battery holder
