I get a few emails each week asking for a recommendation, and it's hard to go wrong with one (or both!) of these time honored gems. Each inexpensive transmitter kit is simple to assemble and comes with an excellent assembly manual that will help you learn about the technology while putting together a set up that will provide hours of fun.
VEC-1290K Kit, AM Radio Transmitter with Antenna Tuner

Delivers good modulation depth and linearity. Features a professional quality epoxy PC board, with solder mask and silkscreened parts legend to make assembly a breeze!"

The assembly manual is linked from the product page, and you can read a review here and another review here.
