As a light of a distant star, I happened to obtain a Soviet era radio kit today, a so called “радиоконструктор”. Oh sweet memories of the childhood 😉 Anyway, this bestia is from approximately 1973-74. Might be, some details are missing or extra (from another kit), but the majority of pieces, according to the BOM, are intact. One can obtain more information about these Sovied era kits from here and there. These numbers 4.720.000 РЭ on each page of the instruction denote a particular military manufacturer, a so called “number factory”, but considering that the Soviet tradition was to militarize all meaningful technology factories, the fact gives of no extra value. Considering the name of the kit – Kiev – it very likely came from an Ukrainean location.
