This battery-powered monitor has been designed to provide an audible indication of keying for those whose rigs lack a CW sidetone. Its sensor wire is wrapped around the transceiver`s coax no direct connection is required. Of course Morse isn`t the only use for this nifty circuit it should also be useful any time you need a simple alarm tha

t detects the presence of RF. RF collected at the sensor wire is rectified by a germanium diode. This produces a DC voltage that triggers a transistor switch. This then turns on a 555 audio oscillator that drives a speaker.
