Dangly bits

Today I have been connecting dangly bits to things. First up simple whip aerials to the Ciseco Explorer and Slice of radio. Range indoors isn't as good as I'd hoped, walls really do kill the signal.

Then I added the Pi Noir camera my brother bought me for Christmas to one of my Raspberry Pis. This works beautifully and produces a great image but seems to need a bit of faff to make it work with v4l.

The whole thing, especially the ribbon cable, feels like it won't stand rattling around exposed very well. So I've removed it again and packed it away until I can come up with something to hold it secure and have a bit more time to mess with it.
