    NIKOLA TESLA'S RADIANT ENERGY SYSTEM
    I want to ask you guy’s if does this actually exist, I’ve tried to built this thing, but it didn’t gave me any voltage, but maybe I’ve done something wrong.

    From the lack of such systems in the world, you may assume that Mr. Tesla's broadcast power system existed mainly on paper. The Tesla coil is fun to see in operation, though.

    Isn't the issue here one of economics?

    From what I remember, the system did exist and it was actually built. But it was also highly inefficient.

    Well I build this “device” and it didn’t gave me even a mV, I will like to see a diagram of a working one, his only problem was the discharge switch but in today’s life we just use a transistor to do the job

    Care to share with us details of your device?

    It’s just a cap with a ground wire plate and a “antenna” plate and it’s suspended 1.5 meter in the air

    How big are the antenna, the ground plate, and the cap?

    It just a 4 x 8 stainless steel plate for antenna
    It probably does matter anymore someone told me that it needs dry air to operate and I’m living 100m from the sea.
    So that sucks

    Is that 4x8 angstroms or 4x8 parsecs?:( If its 4x8 meters, you should be getting a few microvolts, at least.

    Can we discuss Tesla a bit more.
    If his radiant system didn't work how was he able to shut down the local power station when he reverse fed power back into the system?

    The fateful experiment which damaged three of the power company's generators was a ressonance experiment, not a "free energy" scam. He was playing "bouncing ball" with the energy provided by the power company, using mother Earth as a backstop. The power company's equipment wasn't up to the task.

    Even the great Nicola Tesla had to obey the Laws of Thermodynamics!

    I wonder what effect it would have had on our country if our government provided free wireless energy.

    There is nothing free when it's provided by the government. Someone always pays.

    Free energy you get basically everywhere, it’s in radio waves, but it a bit useless if you want to power up a TV or PC. :(
    But still the radio operator has to pay the electric bill though :rolleyes:

    If you want free energy, google "micro hydro" and "windmill" and "solar panel."

    If you want really spiffy (but useless) plasma streamers, or if you want an efficient induction motor with global marketing potential, google "Tesla."

    As I recall the description of Tesla's tower that J P Morgan financed, it had iron pipes a hundred feet underground and a 100 ft antenna connected to a large capacitor. It had the potential to develop a whale of a charge from lighning producing clouds.
