Well guys I guess I am not the only person in the world to think of using pee or certain body parts as communication antennae.
A year ago I wrote: "I did think of a use for my shrunken, ED challenged, unit. If I silver plate it, it would be perfect for a 10 GHz antenna. I can use it to pick up Disney Channel UK, and RTE 1, 2 on Sky UKs satellites Astra 2A/2B/2D & Eurobird 1 at 28.2°E."

Here's a Navy researcher who is actually doing it. The Pee Antenna.

"After a trip to a hardware store, Mr Tam discovered that...with an $80 water pump, a $15 rubber hose and a $20 electrical device called a current probe that was easily plugged into a hand-held radio, he produced a spout roughly four metres tall from the waters of San Diego Bay. With this he could send and receive a clear signal. Over the intervening years his invention, dubbed the “ pee antenna” by incredulous colleagues, has been tweaked and improved to the point where it can transmit over a distance of more than 50km (30 miles).

"To fashion antennae for short-wave radio, for example, spouts between 18 and 24 metres high are about right. To increase bandwidth, and thus transmit more data, such as a video, all you need do is thicken the spout. And the system is economical. The probe consumes less electricity than three incandescent desk lamps.

The guy is my hero! He's welcome to test this system on the pee gravel in my back yard.

Oh, NO! Now that jeff is no longer spending his days by changing his pads, he now has more time to look for this crazy stuff.

Pee Antenna? I don't want to think of what would happen if they tried things with poop. Jeff, how about cold fusion? How about finding me a paycheck?

Pocketman,

Unfortunately, the only way I can tune my antenna to receive the lower microwave channels is with Trimix or a VED.
I haven't been able to receive UHF in 18 months.

Paul,

I am wearing one thin pad per day and install it about 20 minutes after a shower so it does not pick up any residual water. Don't forget all the time I spend peeing into a cup, measuring and recording it. I'm still busy.
We have to find something for you. H'mmm...

Jeff
