    I am attempting to hard-wire a cell phone inside of a clock radio, for the
    purpose of remotely monitoring my bedroom (and the wife therein) while on my
    frequent business trips. This phone will be set to a mute ringer and
    "auto-answer." Basically, it's a bug.

    I am not an electrician-- I am simply a suspicious husband (with good
    reason), and I do not know a better way to concoct this device than to
    simply build it myself (what-- am I going to go to Radio Shack and pick
    their brains about such a thing?)

    I have identified a good phone, purchased a practice model of the clock
    radio, disassembled it. I need only to somehow splice the phone's power
    cord to the clock radio's power cord, where the clock radio cord enters the
    unit, and thereby simultaneously power both the phone and radio. Is this
    possible? I have cut away the outer insulation of the radio's cord (where
    the cord is concealed internally, of course), and now there are two wires--
    a black one and a white one. I have the phone's power cord, which is
    obviously attached to an ac/adaptor, and I am seeking instruction on what to
    do next. If any of you can PLEASE help me-- you may truly be striking a
    blow against treachorous infidelity. Thank you!
     
  2. Well if you need help on such a simple procedure (splicing) it might be best
    to get someone else to do it !!

    man! perhaps you should be thinking about how to make your wife adore you
    again instead of this.

    take her out to do something romantic. show her how much you love her. ****
    her brains out. then, when she least expects it, ask her if she's seeing
    another man. talk about your and her feelings.

    and if that doesn't work, well, it might be time time to find some other
    love yourself.


    or am I missing the bigger picture here?
     
  4. I'd say you're wasting you're time, money and energy. But maybe you need
    evidence so you can move on. The black wire is hot and white neutral. Cut
    the end off a small extension cord and strip the insulation from the ends
    and twist them on to the stripped regions of the radio cord and tape them up
    good. Plug the phone wart into the short extension and put the phone in
    the radio. You might want to cut a speaker wire just in case the alleged
    suspects decide to listen to music. Best of luck

    I wish you the best of luck also. If someone wanted to push it at some
    future point in time (within the statute of limitations), you have just
    opened yourself up to a facilitation rap in an invasion of privacy suit.

    Why can't you just plug the phone in on the same outlet plate at the
    clock? Do you think she'll notice? I would think an extension cord
    plug spliced into the clock's power cord would stick out even more.
    If your worried about two cords coming out the back of the clock, just
    tape them together in a few places.

    Another option would be a sound activated digital recorder. They
    don't use much juice and only run when there's sound in the room. I
    saw one the other day that recordes for 330 minutes. If they're going
    that long, I'd pack my bags and hit the road anyway.

    I'm thinking that once she cheats, you can never trust her again. If
    you ask her straight out, would you trust her answer? If she's
    cheating, then lying will be no problem for her. Don't listen to
    these other "living in a fantasy world" pansies. Do it. If you find
    out she's not cheating, no one is the wiser or hurt. Best of luck
    man.

    seems that a voice activated recorder is the way to go, but it could
    backfire on you in court if it comes to a divorce!

    Honesty is the key man, just tell her you are having crazy thoughts
    and the only way to find peace within yourself is to ask her to tell
    you the truth!

    If she's a good partner she'll be concerned that you feel that way and
    want to help you.

    If she's a slut, she'll turn it back on you and accuse you of not
    trusting her.

    If she's not cheating, but still doesn't want to help alleviate your
    concerns, then she's not worth any further effort.
