Foxhole Radio

A Foxhole Radio is the kind of radio that was sometimes used during World War II in foxholes by American G.I.'s. At night, using a minimum of materials (an old safety razor, a safety pin, a broken point from a led pencil, and a spool of copper wire) soldiers could listen into radio stations playing music from as far away as 30 miles. The only tools need to construct one of these primitive listening devices are a hammer, a pair of pliers, and a pocket knife. A set of headphones makes listening to the faint sound waves more convenient.
