On this Episode we take two new geeky toys with us out on the road. The first one is a Radio Shack Amplifier that cost me $25 and a 6 Foot Patch Cord that cost me $6. This is a hearing device that has a stereo mic and a headphone jack on it. It was designed for people who can't afford Hearing Aids and want amplified sound. The other tech toy we took with us is a Radio Shack Pro-83 Scanner. It has a feature called Signal Stalker which will lock on to a frequency when it is active and is the dominating signal. This is good to have when you are out and about and someone is talking on a radio and you want to listen in. As soon as they key up that little radio your Pro-83 will lock onto their frequency and you can listen until your ears bleed.
We took the toys with us out to Taco Bell so we could see if it would pick up the wireless headsets that the employees use to talk to customers in the drive-thru. Just incase you were wondering what frequency the local Taco Bell is on, it's 469.015. The Signal Stalker said .012 though so it's not entirely accurate.
