    "my name is bond, james bond."

My next gadget is what is called a
bumpbeeper.  It attaches to the under
side of a car with magnets and then
sends out a signal that can be heard on
a radio.

 Parts list: () = diagram #

    (1) 2n635a transistor
    (2) 4.3K 1/2 watt resistor
    (3) 1 meg potentiometer
    (4) 10k 1/2 watt resistor
    (5) 50pf capacitor
    (6) 365pf variable capacitor
    (7) .005Uf capacitor
    (8) .01Uf capacitor
    (9) ferrite loopstick (from a crys-
   (10) coil [see text]    tal radio)
   (11) single-pole single-throw switch
   (12) 9 volt battery
  (opt.) Battery clip & case
   (13) antenna

 this device is a constant tone signal-
ling source that can be tuned to any
clear spot below 1000 khz.  If magnets
are attached to the case, it can quick-
ly be installed under the persons car.
(9) Is a standard ferrite loopstick tha
t can be purchased at radio shack.
(10) Is simply 12 turns of plastic cov-
ered hookup wire wound over (9).

 to tune the transmitter:

 1)pick an empty spot on the am car
     radio below 1000 khz.
 2)Switch on the transmitter with the
     spst switch.
 3)Tune the 365 variable capacitor
     slowly until a shrill note can be
     heard from the car radio.
 4)The pitch of the note is adjustable
     by turning the 1 meg potentiometer

                        resistantly,
