The only thing you need for this project is an AM/FM transistor radio, an older model that has a physical adjustment for tuning rather than digital. This will be a wheel or slider that changes stations. The only tool you should need is a small screwdriver.
You can’t use the newer digital radios which is a shame but the old radios are still around and probably really cheap on Craigslist or garage sales.
I think this is a project worth knowing because in an emergency the more bands or frequencies you can pick up the better. What if the only signal being broadcast is on a higher or lower frequency than your radio can pick up? You wouldn’t know anything that’s going on.
That’s why having a radio ready to receive these frequencies is vital. This hack can even pick up air Traffic Control, air Shows and other civil Aviation Band transmissions. EVEN law enforcement. (Although I wouldn’t recommend listening to it as it may be illegal).
