Ball revealed in this interview that the strangest thing to ever happen to her was after she had some dental work completed and after placing lead fillings in her teeth, she started hearing radio stations in her head. She explained coming home one night from the studio and as she passed one area, she heard what she thought was morse code or a "tapping". She stated that "As I backed up it got stronger. The next morning, I reported it to the authorities and upon investigation, they found a Japanese radio transmitter that had been buried and was actively transmitting codes back to the Japanese.
Aren't your teeth plastic geezer? I doubt you can pick anything up on falses.
Various materials can be used in a cat's whisker radio, but the antenna has to be tens of meters long.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat%27s-whisker_detector
Your distortions are in a metal enclosure, which is connected to ground (via the jacks). I had already the pleasure to listen to Radio Moscow, when I tried out my distortion+ clone without enclosure.
If you don't fancy a heavy metal case for your project there is paint with conductive (carbon/metal) particles which can be sprayed onto the inside of plastic cases to screen out radio frequency interference.
Karen, I just hope Geezer is telling the tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth!
Hi! I'm new here. I hope you don't mind if I butt in from time to time.Anyway, I think I better ruminate on that one for a bit.
