Car Tailer Aid
A Car Tailer Aid is designed to ease your surveillance efforts. If you are tailing someone in a car, this device will prove to be very helpful. Often if you are tailing someone, you want to be able to find their car in a line of traffic. This Car Tailer Aid will help you tremendously.
1 10mm Green Huge-ass LED Diag: d1 Radio Shack # 276-215
1 Pack/5 180 Ohm resistors Diag: r1 RS# 271-1110
1 Pk/5 9v battery connectors Diag: b1 RS# I forget
1 9v battery (the reactangle)
Wire these up with the following schematic:
Simple enough, (I *HOPE* you followed that). You COULD add a switch, I guess, but if you just unhook the battery when it’s not on, that’s fine. Put this in a nice small package, and add a couple magnets to the case (or to the side of the 9v, if you don’t make a box for it) so it’ll stick to the car.
When you need to tail someone, just connect the battery and stick the Car Tailer Aid to the side of their car (somewhere that they won’t find it, but you can see it), with the LED angled so it’s bright when you look from your car.
Now, if you lose the person at night in a pack of cars, just look until you see the one with the green dot near the back. You can see when they turn, too. This is good as now you can follow from a car or two back, and not be as suspicious.
NOTE: This Car Tailer Aid will work on one 9v battery for at least 3 days straight.
