radio vom rhein

Am Rheinufer liegen Sand und Geröll: Quarz, Schiefer, Bims, Achat, und anderes. Manchmal wird lavaähnliches, poröses Material an den Strand gespült, Kohle und Schlacken, die als Reste aus Verhüttungsprozessen anfallen. Sie werden mit Draht, Spule und fliegender Antenne verbunden, dann mit einer Graphitnadel berührt, so dass Radiowellen im Schalltrichter hörbar werden.
