On top - a 60s or 70s vintage transistor AM radio - no vacuum tubes! Below, Baofeng UV-5R dual band UHF/VHF ham radio. Amazon got in chit for selling these to any casual outhouse stubfart... for $23.00/ea. You need a ham license to broadcast on those frequencies, and I guess the airwaves filled up with idiot kids playing with them, and angry fathers telling them to stop it, and angry mothers telling them all to shut it!!!😆👍
The Baofeng also does all the emergency channels and weather networks too. I’d suspect it does AM/FM too? If I had one a those, the first thing I’d do is call Quartermain down the street!
Filthie: “Come in, Victor Quartermain!!! Hey, fag - what’s the difference between a GHz and a MHz?”
Quartermain:“Aw jeez. I dunno...what?”
Filthie: “A GHz hurts more than a MHz!!!! HAR HAR HAR! HAR HAR HAR!”
RCMP Dispatch:“THIS IS THE POLICE! THIS CHANNEL IS FOR EMERGENCY USE ONLY! CLEAR THIS CHANNEL AT ONCE OR FACE PROSECUTION TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!”
Quartermain: “Knock Knock...”
RCMP/Filthie: “Who’s there...?”

How are you CM? Surviving the lock down...?Delete
What I want is a receiver that covers the cell phone frequencies. Cordless phone, too.ReplyDelete
They have them, Jack, but I think the cops and FBI are the only guys that can listen in on cell phones and even then, they need a warrant to do it.Delete
Like a lot of this electronics stuff though... building one on your own is probably possible and even easy... if you want to put in the time to learn it.
