Re: Odd Commercial Products.........

Wow! I just saw a Bell & Howell Disk Lights commercial, and they say these revolutionary devices utilize "solar conversion technology" and "energy storage containers". Does anyone know about these revolutionary technologies? ;) :) :D /sarcasm off/ CeaSaR Around the 25 second mark: https://youtu.be/...

Re: Antenna Cable Routing.........

Earlier in this thread I complained about a cheap wall wart. When I opened it up, I found one of the 4 input rectified diodes with one leg not ever soldered to the board. it didn't fall out, it was far from the hole and clean.

Re: Any integrated circuit that works as the old tone decoder but for RF ?

Hmmm.......

Your trying too make your own home brewed "Bug Detector" huh. :?
Or are you trying to make a "WIFI HOT SPOT Detector".
Well, there are plenty of differing schematic's out there.

Antenna Cable Routing.........

Okay, I need an opinion on this Satellite/Antenna wiring diagram. DSS3.bmp I'm planning on putting a Signal Spliter on the cable going to the #1 Wall Jack, instead of just going to the #4 Wall Jack and connecting the TV too it. The reason I'm thinking of doing it this way, is because the TV I want t...

Re: Technology Backfire?

Have you looked at this video?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc2FiELAbZo

Draining the battery.

This may not be the same as what your seeing, but it's worth a shot to pull the relay and check if its shorted.
