What a cool idea!! How is it going to dim in the light and brighten in the dark? Is that a photodiode I see?

The image of the complete unit on that page doesn't display for me.

Moth Audio did pretty much the same thing using a 15e radar tube.

I have often thought about using an old computer SMPS (12V 10A) to power some big old transmitter triode... hmmm interesting...

I suggest you take into account interference from a ball of glowing wire in a vacuum hooked up to an SMPS..

Kinda acts as a really good antenna :P
