Wearable VHF radio stations are widely used by radio amateurs for organizing communications on hikes, competitions, etc. But there are situations when it is inconvenient to constantly hold the radio station in your hands. In such cases, radio amateurs connect a computer multimedia headset with a microphone and a telephone to it, and the radio station itself is placed, for example, in a pocket.

A "Hand free" headset with a built-in response button (tangent) from a cell phone can be very convenient to use. The author used the NKI 6310 headset, which, in terms of its electrical parameters, is suitable for collaboration with a portable radio station. The headset has small dimensions, and it includes an electret microphone, an electromagnetic telephone and a button with normally open contacts. On fig. 1 shows its scheme, adapted to work with the radio station "Standart-C710".

The regular plug, designed for connection to a cell phone, with an oxide capacitor built into it, was removed and instead of it, two "Mini-Jack" plugs were mounted - one with a diameter of 3,5 mm (XP1) for a telephone, and the second - with a diameter of 2,5 mm (XP2) for microphone. The diagram shows the colors of the wires that are used in a particular instance of the headset. For other headsets, these colors may differ from those indicated. To increase the sensitivity of the microphone, the resistor R1 can be removed or replaced with a resistor with a higher resistance, but it should be checked whether the radio station will steadily switch to transmit mode (TX) when the SB1 button is pressed.

On fig. 2 shows the appearance of the modified headset.

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>

Ant pedometer 11.02.2007

The runner ant, which lives in the Sahara, flies confidently over the monotonous sandy landscape and returns to its nest. Like many insects, it is guided by the sun, but how does the slider measure the distance traveled?

German entomologists have shown that the ant has a pedometer. Ants were attracted to a feeder 10 meters from the nest, and then their return was monitored. Moreover, the legs of some insects were cut, removing the last segments, while others, on the contrary, were lengthened by gluing pork bristles to the ends of the legs. It turned out that those with shorter legs were looking for a nest closer than it actually was, and ants on "stilts" ran away in search of a nest too far.

Conclusion: during its movements, the ant counts the steps, and in order to return, it takes exactly the same number of steps in the opposite direction as it went forward.
