      There's an idea. I don't think the ferret would like it much though.
      I don't have ferrets, but I have cats, perhaps I can try it with one of them? Stay tuned! (My cats are looking at me, not amused).

      Very cool! Thanks for the video.

At TCF, Corey entered the program into his system, and we put a random old AA5 radio I'd bought at the flea market area for a few bucks next to it, and it worked there too. We just set the radio next to the computer, with it's cover off, and had lovely RF noise/music playing loud and clear.

      Here's an idea. Get 2 Altairs to play dueling banjos (or Altairs).
