Re: TMSC 2006 Demonstrations
Original poster: "resonance" <resonance@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
I used our model M-150, a 7.5 kVA coil with an 8 ft long spark, to
light up a 10 inch long neon tube using an identical coil as a
receiver --- at a distance of 4,600 feet.
We started out in the driveway, and I was surprised that at the end
of the driveway it was still igniting. I loaded it in a truck and
drove down the road east until it extinguished. Near 3/4 mile range
using coil with identical tuning.
We used a hoop receiver with an NE2 across the spark gap to
demonstrate the reception of electrical energy propagated by means
of electromagnetic radiation. Being a Hertz type transmitter, the
average RF power must have been in the milliwatts.
A diminutive incandescent lamp was connected to the secondary of a
Tesla receiving transformer to demonstrate the reception of
electrical energy propagated by conduction between the two ground
terminals and displacement current between the two elevated
terminals. No new physics are needed to explain how this works.
The TC RF transmitter was not properly tuned up because I ran out of
time. The power supply was two 6V lantern batteries connected in
series; the current was not measured. The operating frequency of
the Wardenclyffe transmitter model is somewhere around 218 kHz.
I assume by "usual RF" you mean electromagnetic radiation in
distinction from RF currents flowing through a transmission
line. As for demonstrating that the transmission of electrical
energy between 1) a radio transmitter and receiver, and 2) a Tesla
coil RF transmitter and Tesla receiving transformer is by two
distinctly different means, this should be easily done, either
mathematically or through experiment. Why don't Ed, Matt and you all try it?
There is no question that RF can illuminate lamps
at modest distances. Can be done next to any
transmitter, the higher power the better.
It is a deal more difficult to demonstrate, and may be
impossible, that any given demo is some
'special Tesla effect' distinct from usual RF.
