The VLF radio-blocking Deming Box is nearing completion – the final welds on the basic box should be finished within 48 hours. Then comes the tricky work: cutting a hole for the access hatch and welding it in. I’ll call in Jim Pike to do that work personally. The unit will be ready to go on the road within 20 days, funding for the trailer permitting.
Technical note: there also needs to be a proof of concept; that is, I need to demonstrate that the box actually does what it claims to do, which is blocking radio signals down to a frequency of 3 kHz, and preferably lower. I have the technology on hand to do that, but I’ll be checking with a few folks on the Yahoo VLF Forum regarding that before the experiment begins.
So during the summer, most likely mid-late July, I’ll be ready for the first volunteers to go into the box so that we can provide initial and informal results to the Hum world. If you live no further east than Hope, BC and no further north than Whistler, and you would be willing to participate, then please contact me. Alternatively, if you are travelling to the Vancouver area during that time period, that will work as well.
