Advice of the day:
The vendors of the recommended "Mini-Glühlämpchen"/mini light bulbs (Conrad, Voelkel etc.) have completely sold out their stocks. We have emptied the internet ;) Until December 10, they will deliver up to 1300 orders. The expected delivery date estimated on their web page is expected to be realistic. If you have placed your order already, you can receive the mini-light bulbs (5 pieces per order) in time. We will also give you additional hints on that day in the "hint of the day". It is best if you check the hints here then.
In case you could not purchase mini light bulbs, you can solve today's question with a little research on the internet. Search for the expressions "mobile phone radiation visible", "cell phone radiation visible". Information on the influence of mobile phone radiation on the human body can be found for example here.
In case you can and want to do this experiment yourself here a few hints: You best carry it out in the dark so that you can see the mini light bulb best. You need two phones. One needs to be the mobile phone which you want to investigate with your selfmade antenna. You best operate this in hands-free mode so that you can see the light bulb well. The other one can be any phone. The question of screening you can study for example by placing an aluminium foil cover like a little garage over the phone in such a way that you can still see the mini light bulb.
