Never crank too hard...... words to live by
Tell that to Jason Statham
But... Soulja boy said....
snoop dogg would hate this
Cranking 90s bro
"Turning this is illegal" Aggressively turns it*
@Jon Rice there would usually be one in your crash gear
@ST3W for the balloons so they'd float
@ST3W To send the balloon up... Instead of trying to fly a kite.
@Joseph a hydrogen generator? Why?
The emergency kits these were in came with the materials for kites, balloons, and hydrogen generators
"Never gonna get off this island" As a resident of the smallest province in Canada I feel you man
Bro gtfo of there 💀
he is on an island thus in an emergency he can now turn the crank
Oh hey waddup maritimers
“Since I don’t want to be surrounded by police again” Me: so you have done with before, well I see now
"You then put this ground wire into the water" Bruh what water?
Aviation maintainer here, you can legally test that within five minutes at the top of every hour, if you want.
@ST3W i totally forgot i made this comment omg 😭😭🤣 thank you for the laugh
@ryan bolek so let me be me so you can see
Youse the real MVP.
@Ferrum Ignis i think he was sharing the conversation to someone idk tho wild guess
These old emergency transmitters are capable of broadcasting on frequencies that are licensed to FCC Licensed Amateur Radio Operators and if you hold the proper license you can legally transmit using one of these. They are called Gibson Girls and I used one back in 1964 to make a call from Texas to a station in Canada. I believe it was on 40 meters.
Keep in mind he said “I don't want to get surrounded by Police” but then says *AGAIN* which means he's done this before and they decided to pay him a visit…
When I was a kid me and my brothers had the kite that went along with this device. It was an aluminum box kite. When it was launched it set itself in the air and stayed there, right in place. Just one of the really great things I was exposed to as a child that I wish I still had. Another would be the 1965 Chevy Impala convertible. A great car for a teenager to cruise around in!
that shot of him using the caliper is beyond cursed
Was about to say the same thing😂
I'm so happy to see this comment. It would have been the last straw.
@Skull Fish yeah but he knows that and was just getting an estimate. This didn’t need crazy precision. I see why it bothers you though
If you need to measure a part with a low tolerance and need precision in it, that would never work, no matter how good your calliper is
It worked though
“Since I don’t want to be surrounded by police again...” Whoa whoa whoa, *again?* I think we didn't get the whole story here.
“Don’t want to be surrounded by police, AGAIN?!”
@Brooklynballa bro in my city there are like 5 cops with guns who look over you to make you sure you pay the ticket for the train station
@Jack Schneider You make me seethe with anger RRRR RUFF!!!
L + Woah same ratio
@Jack Schneider Legendary reply
As an amateur radio operator and boater, I found this video very interesting. 500kHz used to be the international calling and distress frequency for maritime Morse code and was monitored by the Coast Guard, but in the late 90s it was phased out in favor of modern digital technology. Currently 500kHz is allocated to the NAVDAT navigational data broadcast system, though nobody is actively using it yet.
There should be a period of time where testing its function (including transmit) is acceptable. I don't remember when but I'm sure it's available with some looking. Something about like the first five minutes of a certain time each day is set aside that they kind of "expect" to hear these signals for test purposes.
Wow, im amazed! Looks like its tough, it floats, and probably saved lives
That is like a meggar which is a generator to test the insulation of wire. It's no surprise that by fast rotations would burn out a bulb or pretty much anything else. You can also get badly shocked by one of those.
Is no one going to acknowledge the fact that your survival depends solely on your ability to *fly a f-cking kite* 🗿
@Magical Phones Instead of rubber filled with helium try paper bag with a candle under it. It used to be a common pastime in the US until they were banned in many states due to careless people losing control of of the mini hot air balloon and setting neighborhoods on fire.
@Eduardo Espinoza lemme just use this helium tank I carry everywhere
I’m dead if something ever happens to me I’ve never flown a kite
What do you mean? 1. Do you not know how a kite works? It’s very simple device and easy to use. 2 No we all acknowledge you’d have to do a lot more than fly a kite to survive
Turns out while we were learning how to fly kites as kids we weren’t playing. We were training for WWIII.
Amazing how well this turned out without knowing how to use calipers.
Saw one of these, complete with the kite in a surplus store back in the early 70’s. Pretty cool bit of kit!
I didn't know that kite antennas and sea grounding were things actually used by radio transmitters.... I've made various morse code transmitters and also used a kite antenna and the ocean as the ground in two of them...the signal from them can be picked up with a receiver from 10 km away.
Just a heads up, on some of the gibson girls the lettering on the front is painted with military UnDark (Radium) and it's exposed and easy to flake off. Might want to check and if it is Ra apply some varnish.
“Turning this crank is illegal….so I 3D printed a crank!”🤣🤣😭💀
Only in 2023
@Sledgehammertoe I think the YouTube title is "Jerry Clower fishing with the game warden"
@Sledgehammertoe If you haven't heard it you need to YouTube search the Jerry Clower dynamite fishing joke
@Ringo Fasho My grandpa used to fish with a crank phone. Just make sure you're not in an aluminum boat.
I thought he was gonna say its illegal because you can "call up" fish with it
Jack: it’s illegal to crank this. Also Jack: now before I crank it..
I like these videos where they say its illegal but proceed to do it anyway lol
Out of curiosity. Where could someone get one of these? While I'm SURE, that there are modern day equivalents, (that are better in many many ways) somehow I imagine that this one would be more🤔 "bulletproof" 🙂
500 kHz ('kc' before 1960) hasn't been used for emergency signalling since the 80s. China, the last official user of that frequency, stopped monitoring in 2006. Today the Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS) has replaced it. Its frequencies are 490 kHz and 518 kHz. Fess up: the police didn't bust you for this, but for the meth lab in your basement.
"Doing this is illegal" "Anyways I'm gonna show you how to crank it" 🤣
@BagOfSouls Bruh, you have, terribly, the worst comment on YouTube. Mad shit his man
@BOZOFromOhio123 Bruh, you have, legit, the best content on YouTube. Mad props my man
@Nobody is Anybody else day d w weMeadowbrook are w for raw
show you how to crank a handle
@Nobody is Anybody good it’s for blind people to make the see😂
That’s actually sick and would make me feel a bit safer as a pilot
We had these in the Navy back in the mid/late 70's. Collateral duty was to make sure the set was in good shape, just in case.
I had one of those in the 80s. We caught boat loads of fish. Drop the cable in a honey hole and crank. Fish float to the top. Keep the good ones. Let the rest go. It only puts them to sleep for 30-40 seconds. You have to be fast
“Never crank to hard” *Me from the future coming back to warn myself*
I want a Gibson Girl set badly enough to know that the frequency this radio was made to broadcast on has been disused for emergency purposes for decades. I just absolutely love everything about how it works, and how it's designed to be used!
Someone with more scientific and historical knowledge please tell me if I'm off, but given the era this is from it sounds like this piece of hardware produces and emits waves that may or may not inadvertently cook you. Also, it sounds like a pretty tall order for a stranded individual with little to no resources to make a kite that is both big and sturdy enough to fly while weighed down by copper wire (which will heat up quickly if it's too small and not broadcast very far at all if the signal is too weak), then manage to maintain flight of said kite WHILE CONSTANTLY maintaining a steady turn rate AND manually typing in Morse code. You'd need at least 3 people to make this work unless the emergency signal is automated or on a reserved frequency that can be traced to its source (Then you'd only need 2).
That was the best generation who designed the most amazing tools 👍💪🙏
My mind while watching this: “crank that soulja boy”
Imagine you sent out the signal and they thought a guy missing for 80 years had just been found.
@Jimmy Winter busy government workers scene with a phone call in the middle of the night to the president. "Sir we've found him"
Some old dude at a desk with coffee, "Jesus, it's Frank" and then it's this dude fucking about in his living room
I love the way old parts were built so simple no calling out to Google for help lol
They missed a perfect opportunity to name it a "Ben Franklin" or any variation works great too. That kite with a wire on it needing to be grounded was golden.
ah yes, of course i have the kite,let alone the time and patience and skill to fly the kite in an ocean or island ..... jokes aside,huge respect to all those who actually did it
Him: “cranking this is illegal” Also him: “ima crank it, but not illegally”
"It's illegal to crank it" "Don't want to have the cops AGAIN" *Proceeds to crank it on video*
I love how in the directions it tells you strap it to your legs and then turn the crank
Shout out to the cops still listening to morse code signals
"A crank a day isn't nearly enough" -Zeep Xanflorp
“Since I don’t want to be surrounded by police again”
@Little Loner i mean it is not like a quick burst of a radio signal would instantly mean you are surrounded by police. You would need to have a signal being sent for some length of time for them to be able to triangulate and then narrow down where it actually came from. What i also find odd would be the police being involved for something like this instead of some other agency... Especially since police are usually busy handling other stuff. I know pirate radio was a thing. I also know VHF radios can use channels that are for emergency use only.. however you need to usually be sending a signal for a bit to be tracked or sending it multiple times while they are looking for you. I know of people that have accidentally broadcast on SOS channels and they were not instantly surrounded. They didn't know they had 16/9 selected and quickly changed it after they noticed.
@Little Loner go play in traffic please.
@Matthew Olean go touch some grass please
@Michael Hanson why's that odd? If you're out in the dark and somebody turns a light on, you can tell where the light is That's possible because of the light WAVES It's the same for radio waves too (This is simplified, if you're curious I encourage you to look into it more! Pirate radio (back before internet was a thing) had to deal alot with this issue since it meant being located)
@Summer Storm fr bruh. Someone can say something and they just be like "oh yeah definitely not" you have no idea who this person could be. And what they've done. I just be sayin " that's crazy"
And thus we invented the dummy load so that we can demonstrate and test RF equipment without actually radiating it
"Since I don't to be surrounded by cops again..." hahaha that got me.
"Activating this nuclear device is illegal. I'll just make a 3D key I downloaded today..."
You’re legally allowed to test ELTs within the first 5 minutes of the hour, every hour. At least for airplanes. I don’t see why this would be any different assuming it broadcasts similarly.
Top reason to broadcast the radio signal: it would be so awesome it would be so cool
Look into amateur radio
@ImNotBluethat doesnt sound right
its it would be so cool it would be so awesome
I’ve never seen TikTok in written text, interesting.
God I really hope the inclusion of the lyric from that one goofy ass booty song wasnt intentional
You can test emergency beacons during the first five minutes of any hour.
If I remember correctly you can actually test it every week at a certain hour.
I love these nerdy guys that figure out all this good old stuff.
“Since this broadcasts an emergency signal, turning it unless your in an emergency is definitely illegal… Now before I crank it up…”
The way the calliper is used 😂
Why is he using calliper? I hope to just using metal ruler
@jjsjeffjjsjeff He just made a video about it. He did it just fine lmfao
@Riley Christian It's ass-backwards
@Kloc I guess, if he decided the thickness of the jaws was exactly the clearance he wanted. I think most people would use the correct side and subtract the clearance they wanted.
thank you. Damn that annoyed me.
"Turning the crank on this box is illegal." *proceeds to turn the crank at 749,000 RPM*
Anyone else have their mind-blown by the copper-wire-kite-antenna coupled with a grounding chain that you drop into the water?
Okay, I'd kill to have this kind of thing available on the market.
“Turning it unless you’re in an emergency is definitely illegal” turns it hard enough to burn out the light
“Turning the crank on this little box is illegal” **immediately turns it**
and films it for everyone to see lol
*who cares* BTW my content is the best! 💪
Crank it in damp ground in the garden especially when you are going fishing. The worms actually leap out of the ground.
Suddenly the swat team enters through every window.
"this is illegal" Him: let's do it on camera!
"Turning the crank on this thing is illegal. So anyway, here's what it looks like when I turn the crank on this thing."
"Since I dont want ti be surrounded by police again" Got me so hard xd
Lmfao the instructions actually say to extend the antenna by using a kite or a balloon... so now you either need a survival kite or a balloon and a tank of helium just to get the antenna extended.
"Unless you are in an emergency, it definitely is illegal. But before I crank it-" 💀
"It's just a crank bro!" -Jack when the SWAT team shows up
The ATF are like a box of chocolates. They will kill your dog.
"Since I don't want to be surrounded by police again" *"again"* lol..
There were no police... This is as illegal as picking up a cb radio and using it without a license. No one cares.
Let’s raid area 51
I'm just laughing my head off at you failing to understand how to use a Vernier guage so absolutely, ahhhh so good, and I know it's a genuine mistake because you included it in your final edit.
I’m just laughing my head off at you failing to understand that this is 100% not a Vernier gauge but instead a digital caliper. They’re not the same thing. Google it if you don’t believe me lol. Also I actually made an entire video explaining why I used it that way In a nutshell It made sense to use the OD side because the inside walls were curved. Much easier to approximate the difference with the longer OD side
I use to get told I'd go blind if I turned my crank too much.
I think a 1/2" ratchet would of worked 🤷🏽♂️
Him: Turing the crank on this box is illegal Also him: proceeds to turn the crank and video tape it. … Read more
"You don't want to be surrounded by police, AGAIN?". That's the story we want to hear. 😆
It’s the sh… that’s get interesting.. we all stand by you.. keep it cranking
There Is no story... He just said that to get idiots like you and me to react!!
Awesome video my friend! Love this kinda stuff.
I don't think led's burn out that easy, if at all.
If there's one thing I love, it's CRANKIN MY BOX
Wow , very cool to see . Thanks for sharing. All that replaced by cell phone and small tech
“Turning the crank on this is illegal” Proceeds to turn it
It's not illegal to crank it. A lot of WW2 items have been decommissioned and no longer work on regular interference types. So I guess it could be illegal but chances are minute.
Where the hell would I get a kite in an emergency situation 😂
Looks to be a regular 1/2" ratchet size if that helps.
When I was a radioman in the US Coast Guard we used to conduct drills with those in the '80s on our cutters (ships). They are used for survival rafts. Once you use Morse code for work like i did, you never forget it. These were usual tuned to the emergency life boat frequency. I forget but it's in the 2mhz range. During drills, each radioman was assigned to different life boats/rafts because we were trained and knew Morse code.
@Andrew DeGeorge I know. 👍🏻 I use propagation to connect with other people over the world.
@PD1JDW KC is kilocycles which is no longer used. its called Kilohertz (Khz) now. MC megacycles is now Megahertz. after a man named Hertz. a lot of factors come into play with wave propagation. time of day, height of antenna, vertical antenna versus horizontal. ground waves over land versus water, storms/fog, omni antenna versus directional and etc. Radio Frequencies propagate better over water than land. But at night with less atmosphere, the signals can bounce/reflect/refract thus increasing the distance.
The box said 500kc, that would have quit the range when your in the open oceans. No matter what time of day.
That's kinda neat that learning to fly a kite was standard military procedure
“Turning this crank is illegal” *Proceeds to turn the crank*
"turning this crank is illegal." "before i crank it..."
Such mastery of those calipers. 😂
When I was a boy, my USAF father brought home the box kite and the balloon that go with this radio. The balloon was gone in a day, but the box kite lasted for years.
Turning it unless you're in an emergency is illegal but modifying it to power disco lights is totally legal 😉👌
“Don’t wanna be surrounded by police AGAIN” 😭
I don't understand why there is not one of those generator crank in every car/truck that requires a battery to start . If there was an electrical crank say either under the hood or even better with in the vehicle, you would never need a jump start again. You wouldn't even need a battery to run at all . 🤷♂️but what do I know.
Can you imagine flying a kite in an emergency ?
You could always run the antenna into a dummy load where it would not transmit beyond that dummy load, Or if you are amateur radio operator who knows Morris code you could send your call sign followed by test test test , test test test , test test test.... Or like the other person said that at the top of the hour you have can transmit for 5 minutes to test... I would just use the dummy load...
#3. Strap unit between legs #4. Turn crank They made it 2 different steps for a reason lol
Hey I wonder how accurate you are using the caliper the way you do it?
looks like a 1/2" drive offset speed handle
“Cranking it is definitely illegal… Before I crank it up this is how it works”
Just a few seconds in: "Using the calliper wrong" Good start...
Dude are you some genius cause I don't know if anyone is so young that you can just buy a jet plane and refurbish it but digging the videos....more please
when i was little I used to go on walks with my mom at night and we used to have a crank powered flashlight
"This is illegal." "Let's do it!"
