<p>Thank you very much for help me to make a listening device from a walkie talkie Thanks a lot <a href="http://radiosguru.com/" rel="nofollow">LinhTramN</a> for inform me about your site . Really it is very helpful.</p>
What's the paper clip for ?
Well you can listen in but until the battery dies i would give it a larger battery to let it last longer
And lets not forget that when batteries run low the dam walkie-talke lets out a beep ,indicating low battery.now your screwed.
Awesome, thats a really good techneak, whats the paperclip for
will electrical tape work instead of masking tape but<em><strong> GREAT </strong></em>Instructable and sweet pictures!&nbsp;=)
Or you can buy 2 cheap&nbsp;tracfones, call one, hide the other one and then you can listen from miles and miles away.&nbsp; Just hope you dont hit a bad service area.&nbsp; :)
Many radios have a built-in voice activated transmit option.<br />
You needed nine steps to say "tape a paperclip to a walkie-talkie and leave in another room"?
Yeah,Its pathetic right?
am I going to have to flag this as "not nice"? because it doesn't really sound like a compliment.
*a very well deserved facepalm*
I agree. I died a little inside.
It's a complicated process :P
hiya, am not a professional HAM radio operator, but one thing i learned with working with radios...if you keep the PTT Push to Talk) depressed for a long time, you could end up burning up your Finals.. am not sure if this goes the same for Family Radio System (FRS)..thanks!!
ive tried it and i got caught i hid the walkie talkie under a chair and for some reason my two older brothers saw them and made a blag private convo where they said they where going to do a hit on someone so i ran down and said your not gunna do a hit on anyone without me and they said to me you F***ing idiot we sussed it out we saw you walkie talkie under the chair and now im grounded for 3 months my my mum and step dad for ease dropping
Now if they were going to do a hit, the ending would be different...for some.
lol that sucks...srry man.
What does the paperclip do?
do you have the seven autorization from the author of the picture to use them?
No,They never do,They just rip the pictures off.
wow that mad over pictures?!?! lol...sad
What do you mean?
oops i just pressed it.
goto dollar tree and buy a 1$ (duh) listening device and get a long extender audio cable and tada you are done
This was in one of the evil genius books but the design also incorporated a sensitive audio preamp.
Cool, I'd like an ible on how to do this with cell phones and connect it to the computer via USB with bare wires, like in burn notice!
Nice quick idea. You could also solder a jumper on the PTT button and put a pre-amp to the mic to help pick up the lower voices.
use the vox feature and the walkie talkie should auto send by voice instead of having to hold down the talk button
