Both were DC receivers. I built the HW-8 and I really remember worrying

Velcro, that's our cat, particularly likes it when we sit at the
computer - she likes to sit on the worktable next to the monitor and get
her back stroked. She also is fascinated by the head motion of our
DeskJet printer and will sit on top of the printer and try and bat the
print head with her paw.
