Hey, I'm having a problem building the AM Transformer. Before i built the transformer i connecte dall the parts using alligator clips and it worked. Now when i soldierd everything the sound doesnt want to be sent. I cant really identy the problem but i think its with the transformer. I think the oscilliltor is working because 1000 AM starts being all scrty and my TV also starts getting a bad picture when i turn it on so i think the oscillator is working. My wiring on the Transformer is opposte from yours. I think thats where the problem might be. I double checked your wiring and your blue is my green and my green is your blue. I connected them correctly, but the red and white may have been connected wrong. I think that if the other colors are opposite these might be opposite also. I hope you understand what i said and i hope you can help
