hi Matthew, this work is intriguing, the first reminded me of an
URL I recently bookmarked and maybe it is applicable to the
quote on the page: "The basic conceptual plan of the work is
to follow the events in the electromagnetic spectrum according
to the daily changes in the ionosphere, which have a lot to do
with the sun activity and present this immateriality as a acoustic
and performative experience. The Signal-Sever! Machine is the
sensor array and processing unit which receives radio waves,
process, transforms them and send them back in a many
different directions and forms." here it is:
†"ATMOSPHERIC ELECTROSTATICS" by Lars WŚhlin contains chapters on Ben
Franklin, lightning, ball lightning, lightning protection, fairweather
electricity, and thundercloud charging. The electrochemical model of
thundercloud charging is proposed and is shown to be supported by
simple experiments.† QC 961.W34†††

the Makrolab is also out-of-this-world in that it looks like a
moon colony pod or lunar-lander or moon base-camp or
something similar. it has the aesthetic totality that the ETOY
tank has for the aesthetics of construction and building, yet
this experiment reminds me of Archigram's work, or others.
it not only looks interesting, but it is functioning as it looks,
it is like the International Space Station (ISS) for RD&D work...

r a d i o q u a l i a are researching a project which builds on the
use of Van Eck surveillance techniques. Van Eck phreaking enables data
to be collected from computer monitors, and other electrical equipment
using electromagnetic emmissions. Van Eck techniques show that computer
data is more vulnerable than people expect. Surveillers can utilise
receivers and remote devices to position themselves at a distance from
the computer being surveilled, allowing data to be observed and
replicated without needing to access a computer's hard drive.

this work also reminds me of the project which re-utilized the
VENTSPILS INTERNATIONAL RADIO ASTRONOMY CENTER,
though I forget the details for its dual-use (for music, possibly).

please do. on the TSCM-L list there was just a link to what seems
to be a D.I.Y. spectrum analyzer, but I've yet to read it. in case
Also, those links to the INSPIRE and another Nasa-related project
also had 'custom built' radios as part of their projects, with circuit
diagrams on one, for listening to space/earth signals, for your info.
send any info, the website can also link to the project URLs. Brian
