This is a copy of a comment I made below a YT video called LC Oscillator Tank Circuit.
For anyone that may be interested.

Years ago I spent $200 on a radio scanner so I could listen to the aircraft frequencies.
Some time after that I had an idea with the LC oscillator.
I payed $4 for a cheap pocket transistor radio.
I opened it up and found the coil of wire near the variable capacitor (the one with the tuning knob attached).
Using a small screwdriver I spread the coil apart a little which shifted the frequency of the oscillator
to a range that included the aircraft frequencies. Much cheaper than $200. LOL

BASIC appeared in May 1964. Lightning flashed, the wind roared and the Earth moved.
And nine months later I was born.
So here I am.
I am Basic.
Code is in my genes.
