So you can now send and receive, then respond and receive at different "stations" on opposite ends of that board ... I like it!!!

Noticed ... sure, but unusual things in the background of your photos and videos are more the norm than the exception Lenn, and who could possibly comment on all the things we see in the background around your place when we are continually amazed by whatever new creation you are sharing with us in the foreground!

How long do you figure before he drops that telegraph pole and you have to call a lineman in for repairs?

Cool stuff as always Lenn !!!

I honestly didnīt notice the beaver, as iīve been at work pretty much 24/7 in the last couple of weeks, and the (relatively) small screen on my phone makes quite a few details elude my perception.
I love it, itīs a fun little detail

Today we made a wireless telegraph, they would connect a antenna to these and it would transmit the spark to another antenna .
This is what the Titanic had on it which didn`t help them much as the telegraph with the strongest signal would be the one that`s picked up.



I used a model T buzz coil.

Another addition to the collection a relay, they were used if it was a long line to the next station to boost the signal on the other end.
