Brian posted up this neat crystal radio mousetrap in the MAKE pool created by Kevin Norton that was featured at the 2006 New England Wireless and Steam Museum’s Yankee Steam-UpLink.

  1. Kevin Norton had a lot of little crystal sets there, including one that looked like a cathedral radio (you can see a picture of it in the photos I posted).

    Until I saw his exhibit, I didn’t know you could use crystal sets to listen to our planet; the sign on one of the sets said it was appropriate for listening to thunderstorms as far away as South America. I think I even saw something about other geophysical stuff on one of the sets (I could swear it said something about earthquakes… I should have snapped a photo, but the mousetrap distracted me).
