sounds are breathing through the cb, turning it on and off, etc.

the following two files are highly modified, direct from crystal through
minidisk; if you listen carefully you can hear a low-frequency beacon at
one point.

with all three files, the variometer is used for fine tuning (in series
with the loose coupler primary; the other end connects to ground).

why are these of interest? for me, it's the mystery and wonder of coil
couplings against power grids and human transmissions. and then what
