This is a thread to post about your first electronics projects. I started quite young and my first project was an astable flip-flop using AC128 transistors and 2 light bulbs (I didnt get to use LED's for quite a few years) Then the astable was modified, with one of the bulbs replaced with a small speaker and some component values changed to increase the frequency. Then I made a crude "keyboard" with 8 notes to make an organ with variable resistors attached to each "key" to tune them. The next big project was a radio, all thanks to the Ladybird series of books. I managed to find some pics of the books online with some of the projects.
