There’s a lot that goes into making a nice crystal radio set, so this is going to have to be broken down into two parts. The first part is the actual making of a functional radio, and the second part is making the whole arrangement look nice. In this part, I’m actually going to tell you more than just how to make a crystal radio, but I’m also going to explain how and why they work.
These are awesome science experiments and great DIY projects for the kids to do on a rainy day. Heck, this project is awesome for any adult to do also. It’s amazing how you can pick up radio stations with nothing more than a few wires and NO batteries.
