So, I got really curious with Nikola Tesla's ideas of making the world a better place by building towers that could use "cosmic" energy and somehow transmit it to people for free. Then came Thomas Moray years later looking into Tesla's work and made his own device that worked and was verified by eye witness engineers and Congressman. My question is where would I start to experiment/Diy at home to expire these things for myself. Any schematics and details would be much appreciated for an Electrical engineer hopeful.
>>912127 From what I've read Tesla was basically tinkering along the likes of solar power. It's just that it all sounds weird and mystique when you read about it in the words and terminology of his time. So buy a solar panel and there you have a free radiant energy to experiment with at home.
Also, have to move in a couple months. I'll finally have a place with a yard. I'll finally have room to do some HF work. I'm thinking either a Kenwood TS-2000 or an ICOM IC-7100. Sure, a few tradeoffs between the two, but any opinions from those who have used both?
>I'm new to electronics, where do I get started? There are several good books and YouTube channels that are commonly recommended for beginners and those wanting to learn more, many with advanced techniques. The best way to get involved in electronics is just to make stuff. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

I want to connect a single 3.5 wire from the computer and have it split into speakers and headphones. I want to have two switches connected to the ground of each (Headphones/Speakers) so that I can choose which one gets any sound. Would that work? Will the headphones stay silent with R and L connected but GND being opened at the switch? I can whip up a diagram if the description above is confusing.
>>910040 > Will the headphones stay silent with R and L connected but GND being opened at the switch? No. You need to use a double-pole switch to switch both the R and L wires.
Also, you really should be connecting speakers and headphones to different jacks. Active speakers (powered, with a built-in amplifier) should be connected to the line-out jack, headphones to a headphone jack.
A headphone jack may have too high a voltage for something expecting a line-level signal, which will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>910048 Ok, I will look into double-pole switches.
The reason I'm doing this is because at the moment I change between headphones and speakers (Amp with speakers attached to them) by changing what is plugged into the Audio/USB extension that used to be in the front panel. Works fine for me, but I would rather reduce the number of lose cables and switch between the two with a flick.
My girlfriend is weird and told me not to get her anything for Christmas even though she snapchatted me a picture of the wrapped presents she apparently got me. I wanted to make her something special because I'm poor and can't afford Sephora or anything like that.
>she collects garden gnomes >her favorite animal is an owl Should I sculpt an owlgnome out of clay or make an owlgnome plushie? How do I into crafts?
Hello /diy/. Not sure if this is against the rules or not, but this post is not about making stuff.
Lately, I started to feel really lonely, and realised that all my ex-gfs bored me because they were not interested in doing shit. Just buying stuff, watching tv and stuff. Not that I want a woodworker girl or something, but someone that can see value in creating something, you know.
So, what do you think on the subject? Do you have a nice girl that do stuff too? You think I'm being too stupid?
I spent yesterday assembling my parallel-vertical ebb and flow rig.
Here's what I learned:
-The fill/drain port should be as close to the bottom as possible, so that a slight inclination will allow the tube to drain completely while making it possible for the water level on the high side to get... well, almost a high as right next to the fill port. -If your setup involves multiple horizontal tubes and a single vertical fill line, then you need valves on each of them (except the topmost) to restrict flow, or else the bottom tubes will overflow. -The overflow...

>>910865 Workbench too full. Oscilloscope, drill stand, multimeter and a few random tools resting on my night stand along with misc. components and a shitty PSU that I built a few years ago.
Sine wave generator and Lab PSU are on top of a closet. Breadboard with a PWM controller is on my computer desk chair along with my netbook. I'm in bed with my laptop because I've got no room elsewhere, unless I move stuff to the bed.
