The 2023 Club Competition will be a construction competition using type 5676 miniature valves provided for entrants.

Club Vice President, Ray Creighton, will provide for free:

Applicants must attempt to construct any electronic device using one or more of the supplied valves. If more than four valves are required they can be purchased from Ray Creighton at $5.00 each. There is lots of information on line about uses for 5676 valves/tubes.

Judging will take place at the July 30th meeting at Ferny Districts Amateur Fishing Club.

Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place getters, plus Certificates of Participation for all other entries.

Peter Gofton has confirmed the RF front end of the typical application circuit provided (below) works. He has also constructed a two valve VTVM using these valves. So the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Conditions. The only condition is that recipients of the kits must present their attempt at the judging. Ray is not providing the valves for free for members to simply store them.

Good luck!
