    The video that is supposed to show how to make the telegraph says that it has been disabled when you click on the link. Disappointing!

    Would be great to see the video but it is not working

    Pls fix your video.It isn't loading

    video is broken. please fix

    very easy and simple project

    I'm a teacher, and wanting to make this, but where do I get a buzzer? I went to the local hardware store, and they were so very unhelpful.

    Take a look at allectronics.com. They have buzzers, beepers, and transducers starting at $.75. A 9 volt buzzer goes for $1.25. Take a look at my Instructable about a communications activity/game - it shows you something you can do with a pair of Morse Code buzzers, etc.
