During the DvdRA, we received from Hans Boonstra, a satisfied customer, the schedule of an auto power on / off circuit for the bat detector. If you add this, the bat detector automatically switches when you connect a headset.

1) Remove original diode
2) replaced by solid state switch
3) Connect R2 to unused connector headset connector
4) Cl join a mass point

By connecting a low-grade stereo headphone or any mono headphone, Q1 is guided and the bat detector turned on. The combination of R2 and C1 prevents audio signals from affecting the switch.
