Existing Devices that Tap into Schumann Resonance Frequencies

Googling around, I found a number of different antenna designs that can actually detect, measure, and record the varying Schumann resonance frequencies.

Large designs:

The first design is a 200 turn octoloop. It looks like this.

His antenna construction information and signal processing information are available here. After doing this, he built a second device which he says is what the “professionals” use to measure the Schumann resonance frequencies. Rather than 200 turns, it consists of 69,300 turns of copper wire around steel bars.

Using each of these two devices, he was able to detect and measure the Schumann resonance frequencies. The second design, the straight induction coil with far more turns, created a stronger and more well-defined output.

Here’s what he recorded with these two devices:

Much more detail and explanation is available on his website.

One thing I found interesting is that he clearly shows the Schumann resonance frequency hitting 7.8 Hz in 2001, not the 11-12 Hz that Gregg Braden was supposedly referring to.

Tiny coils with thousands of loops

Next, here’s a guy who builds a number of different smaller devices that can detect these frequencies. He aims to do it with devices that cost under 50 euros. Some cost more, others less. They are in the neighborhood of 25-3200 loops and they wound up looking spools of thread.

What interests me the most about this design is its small size, light weight, and long lengths of copper wire. This spool weighs just 0.5kg and yet it uses 1600m (5250 feet) of 0.2 mm diameter bare copper wire.

The largest design that he shares, which he says is 50cm squared, consists of 3200 turns, 6400m (21,000 feet or 4 miles) of copper wire, uses 0.3mm diameter copper wire, and weighs 4kg. It cost 160 euros.

Again, there’s multiple different sizes that this guy uses of various length wires and of course different costs. You can see all the information from his writeup, including more explanation and other designs, as well as his tests on his website.


So anyways, what I really like about these is that you have people who are detecting these frequencies and are able to measure them. Plus, it doesn’t necessarily take a lot of money to do it.

I also found it interesting that you don’t have to have a set length of copper wire to “tune in” to the exact frequency. You don’t have to frequency match the size of the antenna to the frequencies you want to tap into.

Now what I’m curious about is how the double interpenetrating cone shape effects this whole process. Perhaps it’s what helps create the self-reinforcing vibration that Bashar talks about. The devices above are simply passive receivers “listening in” to Schumann resonance frequencies. The one we want to build apparently needs to be “sparked” or started up to get it to begin vibrating/resonating and then from this point, we can tap it for electricity.

    I’m not sure what Braden was talking about. Perhaps you misunderstood him. It’s common knowledge that the Schumann frequency is around 7.5 to 7.8.

    I played around with some calculations tonight. For a cylinder coil to detect 7.83Hz, you need 13.6458 foot diameter, 2006 turns of 20 AWG, 10uF cap in parallel with the coil and some means of taping the coil to tune for 7.83Hz. Q would be 2.54 R needs to be less than 4kohms to achieve T.H. Moray oscillations.You can increase Q with more turns and smaller cap. I too am curious of the Bashar coil can somehow BOOST inductance in a more compact size.

    would this not work to tune into 7.83hz by putting a variable resistor in line with the coil to a variable capacitor

    good job
