This is energy that either originates from your own wiring but is lost due to improper shielding, heat or other means.. it's collecting that energy for use.. so in the view that you'd otherwise have lost it...

It's just like when you put a fluorescent bulb next to a Tesla coil and it lights up. Is that free energy? No, it's just coming from the Tesla coil.
It's a cool little experiment, but it's not free energy, it's just picking up electricity that's already been generated.
The antenna converts the energy in the electromagnetic radio waves striking it to an alternating electric current in the antenna, which is connected to the tuning coil.
Since in a crystal radio all the power comes from the antenna, it is important that the antenna collect as much power from the radio wave as possible.
The larger an antenna, the more power it can intercept. In addition, antennas are most efficient when their length is close to a multiple of a quarter-wavelength of the radio waves they are receiving

Maybe you should add/combine this free energy

its not free energy, but cool none the less, free energy is far more complex. I'm working on it and no i will not talk about it, simply because I don't want someone stealing all of my work. This is cool none the less.

He was using this plan. I think that using a long antennae would produce better results; as the earth is a huge capacitor. Also, setting up a series and parallel circuits would hopefully produce better results.

RIP Teslas radiant energy.... yet another victim to capitalism.

Is this the same type of technology that powered the Great Seal Bug?
In the early 1950's, a Soviet listening device was found in the American embassy in Moscow. This came to the attention of the world when it was displayed at the United Nations in May, 1960. It was a cylindrical metal object that had been hidden inside the wooden carving of the Great Seal of the United States - the emblem on the wall over the ambassador's desk - which had been presented to him by the Soviets.
The Great Seal features a bald eagle, beneath whose beak the Soviets had drilled holes to allow sound to reach the device. At first, Western experts were baffled as to how the device, which became known as the Thing, worked, because it had no batteries or electrical circuits. Peter Wright of Britian's MI5 discovered the principle by which it operated. MI5 later produced a copy of the device (codename SATYR) for use by both British and American intelligence.
thanks in advance for answering my question.
