Here is an obfuscated ultraminimalized Monolith for you.
It is enlightening and harmless, except to the devil, who really hates it, because I'm letting you have it (for "free").
You're curious. So Make it, if you have tools.
Step 1: GET PARTS
-a PIC12C508 or 509 or anything compatible or be able to translate to what you have.
-an assembler and burner for your PIC
-a 78L05 voltage regulator which looks like a small transistor
-a dead 9 volt battery to rip the plus and minus terminals out of
-a new alkaline 9 volts battery
-some 20-ish gauge wire...
-a really stupid antenna which may be made out of the wire and hangers and aluminum foil,
so pretend to pretend you don't know a thing about making an antenna and make something that looks like one.
-A shortwave radio. A guitar amp will also be interesting, but definitely find the radio first.
-The CODE i am giving you to put in the PIC.
sorry this was too easy to make so I show the parts all together. You don't need the blue ship light.
If you don't have the right PIC, recoding just involves choosing different registers and a different port.
