I was recently given a copy of an old radio show called The Shadow. I enjoyed listening to the program, and could not help but wonder if there are any new radio shows being broadcasted. I found a few shows that air in the UK, but I could not find any in the US. Does anyone know if there is a station that still has radio shows?

Nanotube Radio: Supplementary materialsK. Jensen, J. Weldon, H. Garcia, and A. ZettlDepartment of Physics, University of California at BerkeleyCenter of Integrated Nanomechanical Systems, University of California at BerkeleyMaterials Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National LaboratoryBerkeley, CA 94720, U.S.A.We have constructed a fully functional, fully integrated radio receiver, orders-of-magnitude smaller than any previous radio, from a single carbon nanotube. The single nanotube serves, at once, as all major components of a radio: antenna, tuner, amplifier, and demodulator. Moreover, the antenna and tuner are implemented in a radically different manner than traditional radios, receiving signals via high frequency mechanical vibrations of the nanotube rather than through traditional electrical means. We have already used the nanotube radio to receive and play music from FM radio transmissions such as Layla by Eric Clapton (Derek and the Dominos) and the Beach Boy's Good Vibrations. The nanotube radio's extremely small size could enable radical new applications such as radio controlled devices small enough to exist in the human bloodstream, or simply smaller, cheaper, and more efficient wireless devices such as cellular phones....This is the site of the original article

I am going to be taking an amateur radio course early next year (foundation level). I have been doing a little research into the subject and I am baffled by the terminology / acronyms. I'm sure I'll learn all that when the time comes. At the moment I am interested in cheap kits / second-hand gear and instructions on how to make a small, portable aerial for 2m (144MHz) operation for www.sota.org.uk. Any other information is gladly accepted. What is CQ, SSB, CW, QSL? etc.
Question by DELETED_zoltzerino | last reply
I would like to mod a handheld radio (or even a analogue tv but radio would be better) to get to listen to higher frequencies than normally available. I'd Like to hit the 1420Mhz mark approximately but with little electrical engineering or architecture experience, I'm not certain how? Which might make a TV easier to get there as UHF covers that right? (still safer to play with a battery powered radio than a 240V powered one) I figured there is someone out there with the ability to figure out what components need changing? The variable resistor that tunes it perhaps? If you'd rather post an instructable I'll follow that or just tell me what needs replacing with what? Any Ideas?? Thanks

I have scoured the internet in search of directions, how to guides, or schematics for an amateur radio (ham radio). However, I can't find anything of the sort. All I can find is pages of "hams" showing off their equipment or pages linking to the same thing. Does anybody have a good simple schematic for a ham radio receiver or transmitter. If not, does anybody know where I can find one?

I love baseball. I want to watch the World Series on TV, but I don't want to listen to the TV announcers. I want to listen to the radio broadcast instead.* Problem is, the "live" TV arrives 1-2 seconds after the radio. Which means I hear about the deep flyball to left before I see it. And that takes the fun out of watching the game. So, I'm wondering if I can add an adjustable delay to the sound from my radio, to sync up with the picture. I can sacrifice a boom box or other radio for this if nec. Or some other solution? (I can record both and sync 'em up later using video editing software, but that's not practical). * for baseball fans: it's the choice between the Buck/McCarver team (perfectly boring & perfectly obnoxious) and Jon Miller/Joe Morgan radio team (passionate and fun).

I am training in information to get into HAM radio... however, what kind of equipment is used? I looked up "HAM RADIO STARTER KIT" and differnet like phrases to see what I would be looking at... but simply cannot find anything. I assume its because your not supposed to purchase any of the stuff unless your licenced. I want to get in but I don't know where to start... and if after I start if I can afford it. Where can I learn the stuff thats on the test? I don't want to BUY a book, I have never seen any topic that didn't have soo little stuff under google. I mean I have been looking under "Amature Radio" and "HAM Radio" and getting certified and everyone wants to sell a book.

Question by kloenikole36
Are there any ideas out there for building an FM antenna booster that can be used with the usual whip antenna that comes built into most radios these days. Most of the radios are made in such a way that it is difficult to get at the internal wiring, so the booster would have to be an external unit.

I've been thinking about making a FPV RC (first person view) plane and I was wondering about using Xbee and Ardunio. I was thinking have an Arduino on the ground and another one in the plane each one with an Xbee. I want to have joysticks, buttons and switches on the ground to control at least 4 servos, one or two ESC's and possibly other things (like LED's and retractable landing gear) in the plane and also have a camera and some sensors (altitude, battery level, ECT) in the plane sending video and data back to earth where it can be displayed. I am quite new to electronics and I just want to know if what I said is possible, if there is an easier/cheaper way, how one might go about doing it and if that's even how you use an Xbee. Thanks for any help, it will be greatly appreciated
Question by monty324 | last reply
Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and couldn't quite find the answer to my question. I have a cheapo AM/FM clock radio and thought it would be a fun Sunday afternoon project to turn it into just a radio. I don't need the clock/alarm function anymore (I use my phone) and my dog likes to have some noise around when I'm not home (TV is an option, but I hate leaving the screen on all day). Currently, the radio only turns on when the clock is triggered by the set alarm time...and it only plays for a max of 60 minutes. Should be easy, right? I opened the clock and couldn't quite figure out what I'm looking at...

Question by boiken | last reply
I am building a floating radio to take on a float trip. I do not know much about power usage. I was going to use a car or deep well battery for power. I was wanting to run (4)-6X9 speakers, a amp, a 10" sub, and possibly some LED lights that would beat with the music that could be shut off during the day. Is this to much drain on the battery? The float lasts all day and I was concerned about draining the battery before the trip was over. I was told by the local Marine shop that once I start adding amps andor subs the power would drain much quicker. Any suggestions on stereo, speaker, sub, amp, size or the number of things I could run would be appreciated.

In New York City, a Radio Shack exploded this morning. Well, to be more accurate, the sidewalk right in front of it exploded. A manhole explosion led to a transformer catching fire which led to 100 people being evacuated. So far, it looks like nobody was hurt, which is pretty amazing. But still, a "manhole explosion"? They just explode now? I thought that only happened in Die Hard. Link

I want to receive some sort of satellite signal with a radio and then use the data I receive to control a pneumatic system to replicate a heart beating. I have been talking around with some people who know a bit about radios and the such but haven't gotten much conclusive help. I would like to build as much of this as I can myself, the entire radio and everything, though I only have about a month to do it. A DIY radio kit paired with an Arduino might be the answer due to time restraints. What i've learned so far is that I probably want it to be a tunable AM radio. Whether or not I should build that myself from scratch, build a DIY kit, or just purchase one, I am not sure. How to then interface that into a system to then control a pneumatic system, I have no idea other than the obvious arduino. Lastly, I don't need any special signal from the satellite. I really just need to receive a voltage from the radio. Though, hooking into a satellite with an onboard atomic clock so that i can then display the time as well would be great. I am going to keep doing research, though if anyone here can lend a helping hand I would be very appreciative!

I have a set of walkie-talkie radios that I keep stored in their charging base, the base is unplugged and the wire is coiled, there are no headsets attached to the radios, and they are always off, they are motorola 23-mile range radios, this information might be relevant, but here's where it gets weird. For two days one of them would emit a constant hum for about 2 minutes, then stop, then it would start again about 30 seconds later. The hum got slightly louder as you got closer, but seemed to be coming from everywhere, making it very hard to track down, . Remember, there was no power to either radio, and the power switches were off. Does anyone know how on earth this might have occured?Because this might make a fun prank if I can figure out how it happened
