The Castaway's makeshift transmitter.

In an effort to contact orbitting astronauts, the Castaways devise a makeshift transmitter. It ultimately fails to work due to lack of power.


  • Bamboo poles
  • Barrel lids (wheels)
  • Motor (salvaged from the S.S. Minnow)
  • Conche shell(transmitter)

  • The reality is even one person constantly pedalling at break-neck speeds is barely enough to power a 100-watt lightbulb. Given the Castways' less than ideal construction it would be surprising they were ever able to even interrupt other transmissions.
