Re: Build your own SSB?
First, you go to the beach and get some silicon sand. You'll need this to make your own quart crystals. Then of course you'll need to walk the local RR tracks and try picking up loose coal among the ballast rocks, you'll need the coal to melt the quartz. Oh, and start looking for copper ore or copper scrap, it makes the best wire.
Or as Kate Hudson said in Almost Famous, "No, really?!"
But if you really think there's any reason to make your own SSB, you might want to start with the library and the FCC, who'll tell you what you have to do to submit it for certification.
