I am re-inventing myself as an inventor, after too many years as a mechanic! I enjoy learning from Tesla disc Turbines, magnetic motors, and Crystal Quantum Radios. "All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up." - Picasso

    Spooky Tesla Spirit Radio

    Looks like fun... My main advice? Try it!The reflector may make the device more sensitive in certain ranges of fields. Cheers, Rick

    Spooky Tesla Spirit Radio

    With Spooky, each range of receiving (audio, magnetic, RF, etc.) requires a specific circuit setup in order to tune the effect properly. It is finicky, and because of the broad spectrum, there are lots of background noises to try to tune out. Whereas in modern high-performance electronics, the noise is tuned out by complex circuits with special expensive parts, and the narrow frequency of interest is fine-tuned in with other expensive parts for optimum Q signal.

    Most excellent...thank-you for sharing!

    Thanks for your example of the Spooky Radio! It is hard to replicate the Mac for audio like this, I'd recommend getting an old Mac from someone who gives it away, (find a local Mac users group) and use it just for this. There are older versions of the Audio Hijack software available.
