Dilshan Jayakody published a new build, a VHF Aircraft radio communications receiver:

This is simple radio receiver project which is capable to receive aviation radio voice signals which are transmit between 118MHz to 138MHz in AM (A3E). We got initial idea of this project by reading Sverre Holm’s (LA3ZA) article about “cheap VHF receiver project”. Like LA3ZA’s original article this project is also based on Samsung’s KA22429 FM radio receiver IC.
KA22429 is low voltage FM radio receiver system developed by Samsung for portable radio receivers and as described by Holm’s it can push into VHF region by changing few values in its original circuit. In this project we redesign the schematic and PCB with some of those changes and now it can directly tune into aviation band with minimum number of adjustments.

All files are available on Dilshan’s elect.wikispaces.
