  1. I just retired out here. Curious if anyone else is out here in the wilderness...
  2. Those of you wishing to contribute to Dystonaut #8 please send your submission to me by July 16th. Thank you!
  3. The battery that came with it was deader than Marley, and not planning any imminent Christmas Visitations. It was also an original Bell System Battery, and remains in my phreak collection. By all accounts, the 45V batterys are hard to come by, and most techs modify their kick meters to run off a bunch of 9Vs in series.
  4. I'm working on a new issue. http://ticom-tech.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-cyberpunk-techncial-journal-issue.html
  5. I used mine as an actual phone. Was great for picking up crosstalk on phone lines, and hearing all the weird stuff that happens on the line when your phone is "hung up."
  6. I've been thinning out the Electronic Toy collection, and put a few things up on Ebay that some of you might be interested in. Among them are some pieces of vintage Bell System test equipment. http://www.ebay.com/sch/tomf_ct/m.html -Tom

  9. 1/4 wave ground plane antennas work really well for their intended frequency of use, and they're cheap to build - just some wire and a connector. You can also improve the performance of a lot of antennas by putting a 1/4" ground plane under them. Those of you who remember the old G-Net web site from the l0pht, their colinear performance was greatly enhanced with a ground plane under it.

  11. Like I said in my last 2600 article, fuck the geriatric cranktards. Plenty to do on the ham bands that doesn't involve them.
  12. Just make sure everything goes to "11". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrVCjnRdB_k
  13. Just released Issue #1 of Basement Techie Magazine
