    Alpha must mean top and Theta bottom.

    He's a Theta.

    It's a biofeedback device to generate alpha and theta brain waves using sounds that get played via headphones. The theory behind it is that alpha waves are the waves of relaxation and theta of dreams and subconscious actions and by listening to the sounds, you get relaxed and eventually reach a dream state where you let down your pants and start fapping furiously.

    I don't need a device for that.

    New item (still not the thing I teasted on page 1)

    Regency Radio Receiver Model No ACT-E-106



    Front shows lights and toggle switches 1-10, a volume and squelch slider, toggle switches for Priority/Off, Scan/Man and On/Off, and a switch for Step/arrow where default position is Step.



    Back has the info label. Antenna rotates and extends, but there is no hinge. Power plug is removable. Red thing? Hole next to red thing? numbers stamped into the back 227-A21486



    On the bottom is a plastic panel that says Regency Electronics Programming Access



    Inside of the panel there is the PCB. Under the white write it is printed FREQ RANGE MHz. There is a manufacturing date stamp of DEC 1 1978.

    Eh I forget there is a label on the other side of the plastic panel. It refers to "crystal sockets" and whows the frequency ranges on "Band Pins", this is also printed on the PCB.

    It seems overly complicated for a radio in 1978.

    EDIT: found manual: http://www.n4mw.com/Regency/acte106.pdf

    That would be an e-meter and those are easy to pick out due to the cans attached to them.

    This is an older model one

    I'm 99% sure that's a police scanner. Back then you'd buy crystals for each frequency you wanted to listen too. So one for fire, one for police, etc. A buddy of mine had a Realistic from Radio Shack back in the day.

    That is what it is. It has crystals in it now, but I do not know how I can tell if they are working or not. I put it on scan and nothing got picked up, but I was trying it in a building that is pretty bad with signals. I will try it again some other time.

    The book for it says it is not just for police, but fire, weather and whatever else. Whatever the default weather broadcast is, this receiver does not pick it up. I know there is an AM radio station for both the airport and for weather, but it did not get those.

    Oh the other thing about this one is I have NO IDEA what to do with the switches. The manual doesn't really bring it up, I am guessing this information must have been learned some other way... aka you wouldn't buy this thing if you didn't know how to use it.

    dude, you're awful at this, you didn't even tried.

    You need to create ideal conditions for it to pick up something. Just set some old building on fire and call it in, claiming there are people trapped inside. You're bound to have the police, fire dept. and paramedics arrive. Find a cozy spot nearby and scan away.

    the other thing about this one is I have NO IDEA what to do with the switches. The manual doesn't really bring it up
    They're there for the dramatic effect, so that the scanner doesn't look overly simplistic. Like all those walls of blinking lights in old sci-fi movies.

    The switches are so that you can turn certain frequencies on of off from scanning. Do the crystals have any indication for what frequencies they are for? You can google a scanner guide for your area and compare.
