i had the DIY transistor radio with earpiece

I had "built" it myself, so I was allowed to take it to boarding school and listen to  it in the dorm.

Our school allowed us to rig a 150ft copper wire so we could build crystal radios. Just good teachers.

As an aside, I became an engineer because my Physics master was a rampant Communist.  Let me explain:  He worked for Shell and got sacked for Communist agitation so he became a teacher, and he taught Physics the way he preached communism  :D

He even looked like Lenin  8)

These days the parents have to pay for tablets which run an app which simulates two tins and a piece of string, and which cost hundreds of thousands to develop and still doesn't work properly.
