I have written this Instructable, so that you can see how to construct the above from wood scraps Instead of Cardboard (funnily enough, Card is my usual I'ble medium... go and look at my other I'bles, It does also tie in with my I'ble for treating burns with aloe vera) It is also here to explain a little better how things go together, as i found that just watching the video on :johnnyrockstah
's link was a little confusing
So, please as i said go and check the original video after checking this I'ble out, and I hope it answers some of the questions raised. For those who are interested this I'ble should cover the practical part of the Scout Associations Communicators badge:
Alternative B - Communication codes
Send and receive a short message by Morse code or Semaphore at a rate of five words per minute.
When sending and receiving a message, demonstrate that you know the appropriate procedure.
Know the International Phonetic Alphabet and define at least eight international Q code signals.
Construct a simple Morse code oscillator and send a short message.
I want to make perfectly clear that I got my Idea from www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-A-Homemade-Electric-Telegraph!/
this Instructable... It is VERY clever, I made one myself after watching the video, and decided to fill a badge requirement of my Scouts to get them to make one in wood. So please go have a look at the original I'ble as :johnnyrockstah
is brilliant... really... just brilliant! Due to me using :johnnyrockstah
's idea I'm not going to explain how i made the battery box (which is also from :johnnyrockstah
) If you want to see how its made please go and have a look at the link.
