  1. Ok, she can be the MacGyver for the day. But damn! How did we miss the posting about the Bluetooth Startrek Communicator!??! http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2009/11/star_trek_bluetooth_communicator.html

  2. _._ _._. _.... _. _ .__.

    That’s the best demo I’ve seen of how a directional antenna works. So where to I purchase the light bulb receiver kit 😉

  3. wow this is great. I hope ham radio gets another fresh start in the US. it is a dying hobby thanks in part to archaic FCC regulations (e.g a ban on encryption, discussions on the air restricted to hobby related)

    If you listen to local 2meter repeaters recently they are either dead or have dull “on-the-way-to-from-work” traffic. hope that changes.
