So? Where was that AC coming from? Was Tesla just sneaking it into the DC power lines?


You know don't you

Not actually.

Marconi Wireless Tel. Co. v. United States concerned Tesla's patent on a tunable transformer which was used in World War I radios. It had nothing to do with who "invented" radio.
supreme.justia.com...

As I've said, Tesla was a very good engineer.

No, I don't.
Please, tell me.

The tuning of transformer make all the "magics" in radio, don't they?

No. A crystal radio doesn't use one.

Interesting, in reading the decision, it doesn't seem that Tesla "won" anything. Posthumously or otherwise.

Phage, you should stop right here before attracting derision! I made a crystal radio in my young time, and know a collector who showed me some early galena radio. They have a tuned coil, if no tuned circuit are present you will not be able to select a specific station and reject the others. And the Q factor of the parallel tuned circuit produce a overvoltage coeficient that act like an amplification.

The reality is that a journalist made sensationalistic claim of that judgement. True, the case is not as clear cut as I was thinking, but still he got priority over Marconi due to use of tuning circuits.

Read it. Tesla's patents were peripheral to the decision. The case was really between Stone and Marconi.

Don't know if it is a joke ?! Remember speaking to an engineer here, at least back in the time.

Tesla coil is basically a HF tuned transformer. Primary is couples turn and use a parallel capacitor for resonnance.

Secondary is more complex, I consider it more like a transmission line of lambda/4. In RF, such line are widely used as impedance converter, a perfect lambda/4 will convert zero Ohm of impedance to infinite impedance. So you end-up with an enormous overvoltage coeficient at the secondary.

Once, I have taken only the secondary plugged to my scope (using some high value R to protect the scope) and was able to detect corona emission from nearby electricity pole by varying the orientation of the coil. Don't remember the exact frq of the secondary but was something like 300KHz.

So yes, I have used a Tesla coil as a tuned radio receiver.

And you have seen nothing... But it is late, and the virus is doing what he's doing best, wearing me slowly but surely, but the molecule is resourcefull, will broke its bonds and spring back to (re)action.

I'm not going to get into any debates with you, because you're simply looking for students to listen to the grand master of knowledge.


my 2 cents

Seems to me exactly like that... But what I don't get is that all the subjects (FreeEnergy / Tesla / Antigravity UFO's etc) that were once the fringe of ATS are being treated inferiour like that. It's like every subject that is on the fringe is like bait.
'Deny ignorance' and even an openmindedness looks like something from the past'.
I've learned so many things from the old ATS and that is now the only reason I'm still here.
But with people like the virus that is condescending all the time (even saying that Tesla didn't understand electromagnetism) I starting to questioning whether debate about fringe subjects is even still possible. People like that control the narrative and set the tone right now. But thanks it's time to move on stay openminded and get rid of the virus

Nah, your overreacting! The bacterioPhage is probably a teacher, and like many of them, the slightiest deviation from the accepted theory will make him "emotional" to say the least. He often present good logical arguments but contrary to popular belief, he is not always right.

ok overreacting... hmmm could be. Da virus has good points and also very bad ones. But eventually he always starts to insult like 'you don't know nothing' nonsense and so.
I hate that , he doesn't know me and I don't know him (he might be a prison guard).



but contrary to popular belief, he is not always right.


Indeed he isn't always but stars and attitude make up for it. He has the attitude as if knows it all , people like that life in a very small circle of knowledge. What I really hate is that he is trolling down this treath... Free energy and makes Tesla look like a weird dude(eugenics argument) that 'didn't understand electromagnetism '(the arrogance). Maybe some (newbie) people adopt his view and start seeing Tesla like that just because phage said so... a pity.

The fact is he have the same right as you to express his opignon on the subject! Me think you never been in any of those situations where scientist circles exist. You would have grown a much thicker skin.

Anyways, just a friendly advise from me, it is NOT a good idea to talk like that of another ATSer, you will attract moderation upon yourself. Use of subtility in such situation is advisable.

Thanks for that... My skin is very thick and it can morph

Well I've been among scientists in my younger years (RUG) and you're right I'm not really fit for those circles.
Indeed I wasn't subtile , emotions do that to you.

Maybe I just kneel right now nah... I might catch a virus

Why would Tesla think he could transfer electricity through the ground? The idea is laughable to even an apprentice Electrical Engineer.

And this is why seasoned engineers will sometimes laugh at the apprentice engineers.


How would you transfer energy wirelessly through the ground exactly? Once you have earthed an electrical current how do you pull it back out? I seem to have missed this in my training as an Electrical Engineer (it was a long time ago)and would be sincerely interested to know.
Thanks in advance.

As The Scot pointed out.. Tesla died in what best could be described as a "dump"...


He died at the New Yorker Hotel which was one of the premier properties in Manhattan at that time.

You're a person of much knowledge, just a curious question, I was looking at trying to do some reading on Tesla. Do you have a personal interest is with Tesla by this I mean is there any of his work that intrigues you or do you think his ideas were just all a waste of time. If there is anything that does intrigue you about Tesla what would it be?
