I won this on eBay for $13. It's brand new and runs on 120VAC (US voltage). It has a 100 watt spotlight bulb and a rotating reflector.



What should I do with it?

Add it onto your car, and make sure it flashes when you sound your Submarine Dive Horn  Wink

Rig it so it turns on (with the sub horn) every time you kiss a girl in your apt. I know it won't get much use, but it should make for a priceless expression on her face when that starts to flash and the horn goes off.

Connect it to your computer (and connect the horn as well), so that you will be warned the next time you attempt to purchase off eBay stuff you don't have a use for. Big grin

Mount it by the front door next to the dive klaxon. When unwanted salesmen, Seventh-day Adventists, or that obnoxous guy from down the street come to your door....blast 'em. Sort of a reverse doorbell.

What should I do with it?

You need a gas powered generator to power all of these. I'd suggest getting one with wheels. Drag the generator, beacon and dive horn to the nearest busy street coner. Hold up a cardboard sign and beg for money with the horn going full blast and the beacon rotating.

Or you could buy two of these beacons, along with an 'OVERSIZE LOAD' sticker. Great for transporting your date to the local All-You Can-Eat buffet.  Wink

Put it on the roof of your car, then switch it on a few minutes before starting your engine to alert the neighbours.

Good trick to keep the girlfriend away, never approach an aircraft while the light is on, so the car idea is a good one. All you'll have to do once you've put it on your car is shout 'Starting up' before you turn the ignition, and away you go.

I think this would qualify as having 'too much fun'. Someone (likely a pilot) will not enjoy the gag and we don't want ACM to have to explain himself to the Feds now do we?

If you have a dog, hang it from the ceiling and watch him chase the illuminated spot from wall to wall. I achieved a similar effect with a flashlight, a ceiling fan set on low, and some string. Cheap entertainment at its best.

I could put a bunch of blue, red, and green flashing bicycle tail lights on it. Fasten 200 feet of 1/8" nylon rope to it. Inflate with helium. Let it rise over town at night.

That would be cool.  scratchchin
