Not by intent. It's just a wall-wart transformer and then some resistors to
get the right level. There are the standard cables (wall wart, RS-232,
audio, clip leads). I'm sure there are resonances in there but nothing near

Here is a graph with the vertical scale zoomed in on the top of the sine
peaks so you can see the voltage step.

Good idea. Or an old clock motor. Do they still make motor driven clocks?
The kind with the flag that drops down and turns red on a power loss rather
than blinking 00:00.
I should be able to do something with a simple L-C. I'll have to check the
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
