247News1: why are you not building it to its specs ?
bcreason: You mentioned Tesla in a comment. Tesla was experimenting with the wireless
transmission of electricity. The reason it never went anywhere is there was
no way to bill people for it. The difference between what people seem to be
discussing here and what Tesla was doing. Is that Tesla was transmitting
high power from a generator to circuits like the Henderson. Here you're
just picking up stray radiation from radio stations and fluorescent
lighting. So there is very little power available.
bcreason: As an electrical engineer, from the schematics I've seen, I expect that
this generator would produce some small amounts of electricity. I'd have to
run the calcs but this should pick up induced currents from radio stations
or even nearby electrical circuits. Not free energy exactly as someone else
is paying for it. Maybe enough to charge a cell phone? But would depend an
many variables in the circuit and the surrounding environment.

morpher44: To elaborate. A magnetic field will cause particles to SPIRAL down towards
you. Hence, a plate antenna will see a GAIN with more events arriving per
second. Those events can PING the coil, and make it oscillate with damped
oscillations. Those oscillations further can enhance the magnetic field,
and so forth. This will build up to some equilibrium .. depending on how
well your machine is balanced.
morpher44: I'm not familiar with "Henderson". Hendershot perhaps? Picking up ambient
energy is an interest.
bcreason: While you will get some electricity out of this I wouldn't get to excited.
You can only get what's available locally and that energy is pretty
diffuse. You'll never get enough to run a refrigerator. There is case in
brazil where there used to be a million watt radio station. Slum residents
near the antenna would get free lighting by connection a wire antenna to a
fluorescent tube. No circuitry required.
BigGuyWhoKills: Don't use stainless steel, use iron. Stainless steel us not very magnetic.
bcreason: Thank you for agreeing. You don't have to explain the terms for me. I have
a degree in Electronic Engineering.
Yotumumagic: It was good enough for Charles Lindberg to cross the Atlantic with.
morpher44: @BigGuyWhoKills I've proven to myself that energy can easily be transferred
in this way .. to and from capacitor to coil. When you study electronics,
these devices are taught as separate components. Hendershot's unique design
combined these into a single component.
bcreason: Excuse me. Where did you come up with that? As far as I remember the Spirit
of St. Louis was essentially a flying gas tank that had to be carefully
weighed so that it could take off with such a large fuel load. For it to
use this tank circuit it would have been propelled by an electric motor. In
every picture of it you can clearly see the big IC engine on the front.
morpher44: @BigGuyWhoKills Actually, there are various types of stainless steel. Some
is magnetic. That is one of the mysteries about Hendershot. Did he use
cylinders that had iron in them or where they non-magnetic stainless steel.
His FIRST designs used coffee cans, which would certainly have iron in
them. Also, on one photo had the letters "Fe" -- implying iron -- labeled
on the cylinders. So I agree with you. I think he was essentially
constructing a combination capacitor, transformer device.
morpher44: Yes. Exactly. The reception of "ambient" power is the goal. It is
"un-metered" and off grid ...and wave forms arriving on property I own, and
so forth. Recently, though, I think I have a better understanding of some
of the principals Hendershot is using and it not Radio per se like I first
thought. Rather, magnetic oscillations probably cause NMR and PRM, which
can be collected on the resonator metalic surface, also serving as a
capacitor. Hence, the cylinders are the positive feedback path.
morpher44: Well the purpose of my looking in to this is to gain some insight into what
might be going on, and working with others on energeticforum, sharing
ideas, etc. This is a fun hobby. Yeah lighting CFLs and flourescent bulbs
is easy. Tesla was brilliant inventing this type of lighting. I've been
able to light them with a single D cell, joule thief, and some coils. Ever
got a nasty shock from a D-cell? Its possible.
morpher44: @Demultiplexer Back in Hendershot's day there was a type of wire that may
have been key. Some speculate the copper oxide that formed on it provides a
semiconductor behavior. Others seem to claim that Hendershot was DOPING
with some sort of radioactive material -- like Hubbard was rumored to have
done. I don't think this is the case. Yes the cylinder is a mystery. Was it
magnetic or not? The foil cap close to the coil was certainly diamagnetic
and closer proximity to coil.
morpher44: I agree with you breason. I don't believe the Hendershot device was part of
the Spirit of St. Louis's design. Rather, from the research I've done,
Lindbergh just happened to be a witness to a Hendershot demonstration --
and that is all. Re: "tank circuit". That is a term in electronics where a
capacitor is connected in parallel with a coil. Unrelated to a gas tank.
