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.

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.

69,300 turn Induction coil

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.

Schumann Resonance, What It Is and How It Changes

So it seems like the antenna’s functionality has to do with the Schumann resonance. Basically what happens is there is a cavity between the surface of the earth and the inner edge of the ionosphere 55km up. The earth behaves as an enormous circuit and there’s actually a 200,000 Volt difference between the two points. This voltage difference is responsible for lightning bolts that travel between the earth’s surface and up into the atmosphere. Between these two points you’ll find quasi standing waves called Schumann Resonances with frequencies between 6 and 50 cycles per second, specifically 7.8, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39, and 45 Hz, with a daily variation of +/- 0.5 Hz. (source)

Schumann resonance around the earth

Schumann resonance around the earth

Long story short, the earth functions as a giant electrical circuit and there’s electrical energy in the air. The idea with the antenna, at least in my understanding at this point, is that we can tap into this electromagnetic energy and convert it into electricity.

In an amusing way, it’s kinda like how they got the 1.21 gigawatts of power from a lightning bolt in the movie Back to the Future. But in this instance, we’re not looking to capture the energy produced by a lightning bolt, but tap into the electromagnetic energy that’s already all around us, the same energy that lightning bolts use.

Now evidentially, according to Gregg Braden, the Schumann resonance frequencies of the earth are actually changing. The frequencies of the earth are rising as we approach 2012. These changes are discussed here. Though this article looks to be written pre-2003, at the time of its writing it was saying the earth is currently around 12 Hz and by the time we reach 2012, we should be at 13 Hz.

In terms of the antenna design, I’m basing the length of the antenna’s wire on the Schumann resonance. I was thinking that it was 7.83 Hz and that this was a fixed number. However, after this research, it looks like it was 7.8 +/- 0.5. Not only that, this number is continuing to rise. So if we’re designing an antenna with the length based upon this variable number, it doesn’t look like one antenna design will be effective for all of time.

Note: There’s another website about the Schumann Resonance and its changes here.

Note 2:  The current agreed circumference of the earth is 24,901.55 miles. Dividing this into 186,282.4 miles/second (speed of light in a vacuum) gives 7.481 cycles per second.

Bashar’s audio explanation of the antenna’s design

Okay so here’s an audio explanation of the antenna’s design.

Bashar’s audio explanation of the antenna design

To summarize what’s contained in the clip, here’s what’s discussed:

Tachyon energy:

The vibration of the particle we call tachyons vibrate at a frequency that allows it to operate as another dimension altogether.

Can we use tachyon energy to create electricity?

Yes you can, but you don’t really have to go beyond your own electromagnetic field to do this. You don’t have to tap into other dimensions of that kind of frequency when you have the electromagnetic field of your own planet that can supply you with all the electricity necessary.

Explanation of this antenna’s design:

This is one of the first devices that will allow us to tap into the earth’s electromagnetic field and convert it to energy.

Take a piece of heavy insulated copper wire.

Create a spiral going up in a cone shape and then another going back down through the first cone. Have the two cones connected.

In order to have any effect in your reality at all, this device must stand at least as large as the following dimensions: Must be able to fit precisely underneath an imaginary 3-sided pyramid that is 3 feet tall.

My notes:

So my understanding of what he’s saying is that the absolute minimum dimensions must be such that it can fit underneath a 3-sided pyramid, presumably a 3-foot tall equilateral triangle. It can be larger but this is the minimum size for it to work.

I did the math and that works out to an antenna that’s 1.98 feet tall with a base diameter of 1.174 feet. That said, this is the minimum and we can go larger. Given the fact that we need thousands of coils, we’ll need something larger than 2 feet tall.

The height to base diameter ratio is 1.688 : 1.

So, for example, a 5 foot tall antenna would have a base diameter of 2.96 feet.

Another one of Joakim’s completed antennas

Hopping back onto the Bashar list Yahoo forums, I found that Joakim had recently shared yet another one of his completed antennas. Here’s a shot of it.

I’m curious to learn how he shaped it so well as well as why one coil is black (insulated?) while the other is left bare and copper-colored.

Adding a Crystal for Amplification

One idea that was recently channeled down through a friend of mine during a discussion about this antenna was to add a crystal to the antenna for amplification.

There’s a wikipedia entry for crystal radios which discusses coiling copper wire around a crystal for, what do you know, tapping into electromagnetic energy.

Does anyone know more about this?

A few questions I have include:

  • What types of crystals are used? Quartz, perhaps?
  • Does the size and shape of the crystal matter?
  • Does the coil have to be physically touching the crystal?

I’m guessing the crystal has to be inside the coils. I wonder if it would do a better job if it was a double cone shape, basically forming an inner structure or shell for the coil to be wrapped around, or if it should be somehow suspended within the coil somewhere.

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.”
