wind monitoring

Project description...

 

 

Earth's vibrational mirrors continue ongoing concepts:

My intercepting conceptual model pro-jects international "coverage" using local wind-monitoring wire and the cellphone to overhear, say, an Alberta Clipper originating above the Arctic Circle which is in direct conflict with a rising southern warm front in twists , sprawling collisions over provinces and states. Phenomena occurrences are monitorable from many points along latitudinal and longitudinal positions. Audio-mirroring of specified coordinates, synchronized as to day, date, WWV or GPS time code, will be by cell phones in realtime monitoring unique wind as on-call throughput sources to the Internet. Synchronous listening would be monitor-able using different 4-up web browsers from many coordinated Earth sites. Alternatively, individuals could listen-in on any current number of specified sequences; or, simultaneously line all the cue-tones on their multiple software tracks and later spatially listen to the full complement of sounding details from major Earth-caused vibrations. Computers generally will be able to give and take, with each collecting or giving any realtime "batch" as passaroundsounds. windmonitoring DETAILs

 

doing it

Select two trees or solid poles. Determine the distance between either (minimum of 15 feet). Get an appropriate length of 16 or 22 gauge galvanized steel wire, also accounting for the total girth of the trees. Thread the wire through 3 pucks and wrap these around your first tree trunk or pole at about waist high. Tie the strands together, as they face the second tree, leaving an eight inch double-wrapped pigtail. Cut and let the remainder of the single wire fall to the ground. Thread the eight inch pigtail through one eyebolt of the turnbuckle. Secure the twisted wires by tying these into a multi-joined pigtail around and back onto itself. Be sure that both eyebolt holes are held securely and undo the central part of the turnbuckle until the bolt's shafts dissapear in the two holes where they are visible. Attach your previously cut wire to the remaining eyebolt hole and do the pigtail number. Carry this wire to the second tree and repeat the wrap-a-round with pucks deal and then make a secure pigtail before cutting off the remainimg extra wire. Grasping the turnbuckle, hold both "eyes" and tighten the strand short of it breaking. Attach your cellphone mic/cable nearest to the tree trunk. When your wire begins to vibrate from the wind, hold your shortwave radio's speaker near the cellphone mic attached to the wire. Begin this sequence, saying the day and date as your spoken cue and conclude with the GPS or tone signal . Quietly turn radio off.

mic is foam wrapped against wire to prevent rattling; notice the mic

is open to the world and could give you the wire and ambient sounds together

The eye of this turnbuckle has been sawed off and two very different wires have been secured.

The cellphone mic could be tie wrapped to several places and would produce differing

soundings--providing you have a secure tie-down place for your cellphone.
