What to do during the summer?

Hi All,
It is a little late but I thought it would be useful to have a discussion about what different people are doing with their monitor over the summer.

My monitor is actually in an 8th grade classroom of an elementary school here in Cambridge, MA (the Peoples Republic). There is a summer camp run through the school and I am trying to arrange for a responsible and interested councilor to check in on the monitor once a week. A baseline would be for them to just check to make sure it is up and running. If they were interested, they could log the data in a binder and look for any activity. I am meeting with someone this afternoon and we will see what how that goes.

What are other peoples plans for the summer?
Regards,
Nick

Polarity response

Your power supply should be fine since it is AC and the Monitor needs AC thus the polarity shouldn't matter but to be safe make the center pin should be the load and the outer pin should be neutral!

MSSL's SID Monitor

Well, I have the box and i've found a power supply that I think will work in England...

The big question is, what is the polarity on the power supply plug on the back of the SID monitor?

I'm still trying to find time to build the antennae in my copius free time :)
