An STA Starts Producing Power! Let’s Run a Bunch of Tests!

So a fellow experimenter named Chuck (who has far more electrical experience and knowledge than I) is also doing some investigation with the Bashar STA. He has not only built a small scale model, but has also started doing measurements through an oscilloscope and is getting working proof of concept results! With a functioning STA, he added a metallic tetrahedron around the STA which seems to improve its ability to receive energy even further.

You can view his youtube channel, morpher44, to view any new videos that have since been posted, but for this blog post, I’ll embed the videos he’s shared with us thus far (at the time of this posting) along with a few comments about what the video is about.

Video 1) Showing the completed STA

This is his completed STA. He points out that it’s only 9 inches tall, which is well below the minimum height Bashar suggested previously (needs to be able to fit under a 3 foot tall pyramid.. so the STA has to be ~19″ tall), but it’s interesting to see that it still produces results.

Video 2) Slideshow showing the construction of the STA

I find it interesting, not only that he created an internal support structure with a creative split cone, but he also added some removable spikes along the side to guide the wire as it coiled around the support structure.

Video 3) STA used in Joule Thief circuit

He hooked up the STA up to an oscilloscope, showing its usage as a transformer

Video 4) Experiments with Radiant Energy

Using a signal generator and an oscope to find the STA’s self-resonance frequency (~1.229 MHz).

Looking at Tesla’s patent #685,957 to receive radiant energy. Adding a solid flat plate antenna to receive cosmic energy. Adding an AC to DC rectifier.

(There’s about enough energy here to power an apartment for a mouse.. which is one of the jokes about Tesla’s patent.)

Works even without Tesla’s plate. Showing the STA receiving energy.

Video 5) Tetrahedron casing

Building a 3-sided (plus 4th side for the bottom) foam/aluminum tetrahedron casing around the STA, and wiring the two together. Some changes in the output waveform are noticed. 🙂

Video 6) Tetrahedron as Capacitor

Fixing the tetrahedron size. Adding a large resistive load to the output.

Putting aluminum foil on both inside and outside of tetrahedron walls to make them capacitive. More output by connecting walls in paralle rather than in series. Creating shielding with the metallic tetrahedron walls.

This device IS producing power on its own, but not much. It’s only producing power in the picowatt to nanowatt range. He wants to do further testing with moving the STA outside so that it’s not affected by the house attenuating incoming energy.

With a plasma ball nearby (so that the STA picks up emitted energy), he can get it into the 1 milliwatt to the 5 milliwatt (1 mW – 5 mW) range.

Video 7) Plasma ball as exciter

The STA/tetrahedron is natively outputting 6 mV and 448 pW.

With the Plasma ball turned on (which emits a bunch of artificial cosmic radiation that can be detected by the STA anywhere in the room), the STA produces much more energy, 30.6V and 9 mW, enough to run LED’s off of.

The closer the plasma ball is to the tetrahedron, the more power the STA gets, and vice versa.

With the plasma ball touching the tetrahedron, the output voltage starts climbing over 60V and he backs off because his caps are limited to 50V. 🙂

Video 8 ) Inverse square law

In this video, he starts testing out the inverse square law to measure how much power you get out of either a 12×12″ square plate (control) or his tetrahedron/STA by progressively moving a plasma ball farther away from the aluminum plate(s).

The flat plate works better, given that it’s both larger and not tilted away from the plasma ball, but both of them work.

He gets a linear drop off up until he reaches 12″ of distance away, then it changes and the fall-off lessens until he reaches 20″ of distance away which is when power falloff really drops out.

The STA actually starts to do better at large distances because it has a lot more surface area exposed to the room in every direction. (This is re-addressed and corrected in the follow-up video.)

Video 9) Wavelength thought experiment

He addresses the previous plasma ball inverse square law experiment by noting that there are other variables at work in the room such as light bulbs, measuring tapes, and even the person’s metabolism changing.

Doing some tests to find the resonant frequencies and using sound output to help him out, the radio starts transmitting some really funky sounds, which bothers both him and his dog (and me to be honest, watching the video…)

Moving the STA out from inside the metallic pyramid definitely reduces the power. Putting it back in the center boosts the energy.

He also poses a question… when energy travels down the copper wire of the cone, does the frequency of the energy change or does the velocity of the energy in the wire change?

Video 10) High voltage ping experiment

In this video, he experiments with pulsing it with high voltage fields and seeing what happens. He’s able to get some echos.

Video 11) Power Curve Experiment

In this video, he sets up the plasma ball at the apparent fuzzy distance between the near field and far field and starts experimenting with a variety of resistive loads, seeing how it affects the output voltage.

He also points out, regarding the antenna design, that the foil tetrahedron is touching the top of the coiled antenna while the bottom of the coiled antenna is wired out to the AC to DC converter.

That’s it for now, up to the date of this posting. You can continue viewing his most recent videos by visiting his youtube channel.

Thanks for all the awesome work Chuck, and for sharing your continued results with us!! 🙂

Video 12) Audio Tones from Coil

In this video, he talks about hooking the antenna up to an AC to DC converter and using that to try and charge a 9v rechargeable battery. He also uses a joule thief circuit to excite the antenna and start providing it with power. While charging  9v battery with a 6v battery, he noticed an audio tone being emitted from the center-ish of the STA itself.

Adjusting a potentiometer, he’s able to adjust the frequency of that sound. It’s interesting to note that looking at the sound through a spectrum analyzer, you see a whole collection of harmonics.. basically peaks in the spectrum.

Video 13) Full Scale

In this video, he shares the design specs for a full scale STA. It’s about 2 feet tall (to fit under the 3 ft. tall pyramid), is composed of two 370 ft. lengths of 14 gauge wire, and features 180 turns. He also shows the constructed antenna.

Video 14) LRC Circuit

Using a software circuit simulator, he simulates an electrical pulse into the STA and shows that to maximize the duration of the ringing effect, we want a small resistance, large inductance, and small capacitance.

He also creates a tesla coil spark gap and shows what happens when you connect the STA to it. It basically starts magnifying the output, decreasing the load on the other power source, and making the output more erratic.

Video 15) Give a Little, Get a Little

In this video he does a test to show that if you stimulate the coil with lower power but high voltage, the reception improves.

Video 16) Bigger Plate Antenna

In this video he hooks the STA up to a 10’x20″ flat plate which acts like an external antenna. Hooking the STA up to an oscope, he shows that the antenna is receiving a very very very small amount of power out of the air.

Bashar Explaining More About the Antenna

In the session titled “Take Action” from Oct. 12, 2008, Bashar talks with a fellow experimenter named Kevin who built a jig which you can use to wrap the copper wire/tube around.

You can download and listen to the full ~5 minute MP3 by clicking here.

Below I’ll share some relevant notes and quotes from the talk. Again, you can listen to the complete audio yourself by clicking the mp3 link above.

The coils need to be insulated. Kevin mentions using insulating paint for the insulation.

The STA is in some sense a capacitor and a transformer.

Bashar: “Once you initiate a certain kind of electrical current through it, you allow it to become vibrationally sensitive, because of its shape, to higher frequency energies which are then, in a sense, harmonically attracted to it and begin coursing along the same route. Once the higher frequency energies begin coursing along the same route, it sets up a self-reinforcing vibration that then can be amplified in a variety of ways and transformed, stepped down and transformed into electrical energy or various kind of energy that you can tap and use for your devices on your planet.”

Kevin: So you need to kick start it with an AC pulse. Then it will start resonating, driving itself, and then we can tap energy from it. Bashar: Yes.

Bashar: “This is the very beginning and very early experimentational form. This will improve and this will become more sophisticated, but first it is necessary to do the experimentations at this level in order to then see that you’re getting some effect which will then guide you to the next stage of refining it.”

Kevin: There are quite a number of inventors that have devices that are at the very beginning stages that show some “anomalous” energy as well.

Bashar: The “higher frequency energy” that it taps in to comes from what has been euphemistically referred to as the “template level reality” or “lower astral plane.”

Bashar: “Enjoy your experimentation!”

Third Prototype: Insulated Copper Tube Antenna

Alright, so here’s my completed third prototype. This one is built out of two 50′ lengths of 1/4″ outer diameter copper tubing. Without a support system it was unable to keep its shape so I built an external wooden support structure for it.

Bashar Explains How the Antenna Works

Here’s a video of a guy who had an antenna designed as well. In the video below, the guy sits down to talk with Bashar at 4:08.

In this video he shows a template that he built to loop his wire around, one more rugged and solid than the one I constructed out of paper.

The actual antenna that he had designed was constructed out of bare copper wire. Bashar points out that it’s not insulated and the guy says that his next step is to add insulated paint. I like this idea because, as mentioned previously, wire that comes already wrapped in an insulated coating is too thin to hold its shape, at least the wire I found in Home Depot. Using bare wire allows you to use a thicker wire which will hold its shape better. It would be important, of course, to make sure that you don’t leave any gaps in the insulation coating when painting the antenna.

How The Antenna Works

In the video, the guy asks Bashar how the video works and Bashar explains:

It is, in some degree, the essence of what you call a capacitor and a transformer. The idea is that once you initiate a certain kind of electrical current through it, you allow it to become vibrationally sensitive, because of its shape, to higher frequency energies, which are then in a sense harmonically attracted to it and begin coursing along the same route. Once the higher frequency energies begin coursing along the same route, it sets up a self-reinforcing vibration that then can be amplified in a variety of ways and transformed, stepped down, transformed into electrical energy or various kinds of energy that you can tap and use for your devices on your planet.

The guy then says to kick start it with an AC (or DC, but probably AC) pulse. Then it will start resonating and drive itself and then you can start tapping energy from it.

The energy that the antenna taps into “is what has been euphemistically been called the template level reality […] or lower astral plane.”

Constructing a Magnetic Free Energy Device

Here’s an example of another free energy device, one that uses magnets to work:

There are also plans available online that you can purchase to construct your own magnetic free energy device. I have not used it and can’t vouch for it one way or another, but it’s something else that is now available. 🙂

Insulated 12 Gauge Wire Antenna

Alright, so time to build the next antenna.

The first antenna was made out of bare 8 gauge wire, but wasn’t very carefully designed, nor did it have very many turns in the coil. I don’t know how many are necessary, but I do want something that looks a little closer to this.

I had about 33 feet of insulated 12 gauge copper wire, the largest gauge insulated wire that Home Depot carried, so I pulled it out to make my next antenna.

With the paper template at the ready, I cut the length of wire in half and coiled the two cables around the template simultaneously so that each one would be very similar, with the same number of coils, a similar spacing between each loop, and so on.

Coil the wire was pretty easy at the top where everything was still close together, because I could hold it in place with my hand. The lower down we got, the larger the loops, and the more likely it would be that things would start getting messy, that the first wire would cross over the second wire, that the spacing between each loop would vary, and so on.

Anyways, once the two individual coils were built, I took them off the template, separated them, and got to the process of trying to intertwine them.

The first thing that I found was that the coil was very springy and had a tendency to elongate when taken off the template. When this happens, the important 33 degree angle of the apex shrinks.

The connectors I got from Home Depot must be the wrong ones because they flat out hold. I grabbed some duct tape and taped the bare ends of the wires together, leaving a little bit of wire exposed so that I’d have something to spark when it came time to activate this antenna with an AC circuit.

Here is the completed antenna, laying on its side:

There’s a few things to point out:

  • It looks a little better constructed than my previous antenna.
  • There are way more rotations in each cone, 17 to be exact.
  • The antenna bows down when laid horizontal like this.
  • The spacing between the larger loops are significantly larger than the spacing between the smaller loops.
  • The cones overall are less than 33 degrees since the antenna is stretched out.

Because the coil was stretched out, I decided to use gravity as my friend and have it stand vertically so that it’d compress back down to its proper shape. This works, but the base loop was is too weak to support the entire structure and it just falls right on over.

So I need a stand, a thin vertical bar to hold the antenna in place.

Okay sweet, so now it’s vertical but still not quite symmetrical. Here’s a closer view so you can see what I mean:

You can see it still has a tendency to fall over to one side. So to use this antenna, not only would I need a vertical support system, but I’d also need something to keep the innards from flopping over to one side.

hmmm. My intuition says that it does need to be symmetrical and precisely designed so that it resonates at a particular frequency. I’m gonna need something a little more, hmm, professional? than this.

Building a Template

So one of the main problems with my first antenna was that it looked like crap. 😀 I coiled the cable by hand in the air and it didn’t turn out so well. This time I wanted to create a hard cone-shaped shell to wrap a cable around.

With a large 33 degree angle spanning several sheets of paper laying on the table, I got a large piece of posterboard and curled it up into a cone and taped it down when it was the right angle. (Having a partner here helps to tape down the edges while you hold the posterboard in place.)

Trim down the bottom so that it has a relatively flat base and you’re good to go. It wound up being about 20″ tall or so.

Now, I’m gonna want to make sure it maintains its shape when I start applying pressure onto it by squeezing it with copper wire. A pair of balls will work fine, a tennis ball to support the apex and a larger bouncy ball to support the larger section. They’re both lightweight and resistant enough to push back when I apply pressure.

With the balls shoved inside the paper template, we’re good to go!
