    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

i don't own any radios. i only own a telivion with an antenna. it just so happened the other evening that i overheard a commercial with reverberation. i thought it had a cool effect.

i'd rather not study the abstract approach to noise generation and things of that sort but i'm curious to know if there is any possible way to create reverberation from my television through the use of some device?

any help is greatly appreciated. thanks.

When applied to television audio, the term is transmogrification, not reverberation. It can be done on older televisions utilising isotropic antennae, but not on flat screens, digital receivers, or televisions connected to cable or satellite, unless you use an external device. But on a standard, analogue picture tube television, it's pretty simple, if you have the right tools.

1. The television must remained plugged into an AC power source during the procedure, and the power on.

2. Remove the back cover from the television.

3. Clip the yellow wire running from the power transformer to the audio amplification board.

4. Remove the cover from the power transformer and locate the rectabular excrusion.

5. Using a #3 ambihelical hexnut wrench, loosen the middle hexnut from the trichotometric indicator by one-quarter to one-third of a clockwise turn. No more and no less.

Here's a diagram so you don't make any mistakes:



It always works. If it does not work, then either you failed to follow the directions to the letter, or else your antenna is not isotropic. Good luck!

I tried that. When I turned it on my dog's hair fell out.

Set up a large fan just in front of where the sets speakers blowing towards the set. May not get the exact effect you want but it should sound somewhat like a Dalek.

You don't have to ground it as long as the wheel uses steel bearings.

Exactly! It's all about having the right tools and not rushing it! I saw a guy try it with a T6 star driver once and it blew his right arm off! Remember, you MUST loosen clockwise!

And for pity sake, GROUND IT first!
Ooops! Sorry, I forgot to mention that! But as long as you stand in a tub full of water while you're doing it, you should be okay.

Using an Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator works best. Then there should be an earth shattering kaboom. Either that or you'll start getting free Pay Per View.

I once had a TV antenna that howled when the wind hit it just right. It took a while but I figured out what the ghost of dead Santa stuck in the chimney was all about.

Great Lakes, you just have to know where to find the illustrations.
