• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Very clever use of a photoresistor with an antenna, congratulations!

Thanks for nice feedback, fellow.

I invite anyone who like to build or modify antenna according to this idea to let me know.

The first winter with this is still to come. I'm keen to 'hear' the sunrise and sunset with this.

JUKKA, read your report and admit you have a great idea and it's cheap in price! Who would have thought of such a really good way to make that type of antenna directional at night and omni during the daylight hours.
Great work and thanks for sharing with us...

Ok, thanks for nice reply, ol' man!

As the dammit winter arrives, i'm about to combine that with another idea of mine: Trigger-a-wideband-MW-recording-if-good-condix-on-160m-digital-modes-observerd.
