The theory of LRL
operation is to transmit a signal into the ground that will excite
the distant buried target. A “signal line” is established between
the transmitter and the target, and the dowsing rods are used to
detect and track the signal line. Because the receiving half of the
VR-800 is just a pair of simple dowsing rods, it stands to reason
that the transmitter half somehow justifies the suggested retail
price of $1995. Let's start with a look at the transmit box.
I forgot to link to this
page detailing the inner workings of some questionable devices I
mentioned on Saturday. I got
so sidetracked on the audiophile scams that I totally neglected the
whole long range location devices.
What's neat about that site is it goes into quite a bit of detail of just
how shady these things are, and how they work (or rather, don't).
It's just amazing that people fall for this type of stuff.

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
