Put me down for what "Bored Chemist" said.

Something like that, along with translated russian wikipedia articles.

Now, I know it's dubious. But it warranted further investigation. I'm fully willing to consider the notion it's a myth, but I'd also be pleased to hear the other side and the logic behind the myth.

I suppose a tin foil hat is out of the question, then.

Lucky bastard


OP

I read a story similar to the one you presented in an old sci fi magazine from the 60s my friend had left when he died along with a box of nasa reel to reels and a bunch of commodore computers. I wish I knew what the name of the magazine was but it had lots of martian stuff and short sci fi stories about travel to the sun and all kinds of other stuff. The story if I remember correctly was he modified the whole tv and they did mention mercury and other stuff and it did disrupt aircraft and attracted UFOs but it was a sci fi story and not a true account from what I recall.

So now that logic has failed us, can we hear more from that ancient vedic flying machine guy? He seemed to have some sort of rationalization for it atleast.

If you remember what was the title? I'd be interested in a read.

I think the magazine was called venture or adventure or sci adventure or something like that
I dont have them anymore either got effed up in a flood 2 years ago

Here this is the magazine venue


the one here is not the issue I am referring to as that one had a yellow cover with a robot on the front and I am still not certain if this is the mag with that particular story in it, I think, I had a whole bunch of ones like that and early computer mags. My friend was a signal intel specialist (captain) in vietnam and went on to be a computer communications expert and worked for NASA during the Apollo missions. He was very much interested in the internet and "outer space" as well as into interdimensional travel. He had left me all kinds of neat stuff when he passed away, wish he was still around I miss him complaining "that damn Bill Gates!" every 15 minutes when doing work on his pc

I think you'd be safe with tin. The larger problem is what we in the sneakier parts of the military call your basic "Liquid Metal Embrittlement" effect. You can apply a specially formulated liquid metal to another metal and it'll eat it to bits or do something magical to the grain structure, making it brittle as melba toast.

Before I got out we had a set of things that looked like magic markers, you picked the right one depending on the alloy and you could make pretty holes in stuff by drawing on them with the marker. Give it a minute or two, and smack it with your fist. Instant hole. You could wreak #ing HAVOC on airplanes, if you could get access to a flight line and had just a few minutes.

That's probably worth a thread, actually. Most LME has gallium, arsenic, bismuth, mercury and a few other giblets.

Transmitters are potentially problematic to aircraft rather than
receivers. Generally. So I would wager that some of the facts
on the "old tale" are slightly warped.
Mercury does work well as an Antennae.
My molars will attest to that.

However, just for fun, if this fellow created some kind
of electrically charged "signal booster" using Mercury
and good old 220 current, well, who knows?

On a side note:
I purchased one of those "digital" antennas not long ago.
It touted to pull in 40-60 channels.
It pulls in 2.

I've been had. S&F

Answers that raise more questions, yet I feel progress is being made. Perhaps we will get to the bottom of this.

Hypothetically, if one were able to incorporate mercury in a transmitter that was made of metal that would not corrode, what would the end result be, if any?

Tune in tomorrow for the answer, hopefully...

It definitely sounds like a rural myth to me.

It's not a myth
KGB (now FSB) use those mercury antennas to find out invisible planes and for some other purposes. The BIG secret is that you have to use RED Mercury (iodide of mercury) instead of Mercury (Quicksilver). But you probably won't be able to find it anywhere. And to be honest the whole thing is seriously dangerous

Yeah, but it has saturated my brain due to fillings in my teeth and vaccinations.


Maybe that's the point.

After all...our brains are electro-chemical in nature and work on a radio frequency of around 8Hz to 14Hz, if Mercury does indeed somehow boost radio reception or enhance it..a brain crammed full of the stuff by tptb would be able to recieve...clearer instructions.

Those that imagine they hear voices in their heads, may not be imagining it at all, they might actually be tuning in to them. It would be interesting to be able to measure the quantities of Mercury in the bodies and brains of people who do claim to be able to hear voices 'in their heads'.

Red mercury was the code name for Li6D at LANL in the sixties for about a year. That's where it entered into the CT meme pool.

Or, they're just nuts.

Remember, mercury is a nerve poison. And your nerves don't act like antennas, nor radio receivers, in any way. Oh, yeah, you can't modulate voice onto ELF either, so there's that.

When you say red mercury, are you referring to mecuricome, the stinky antiseptic my grandparents dumped on my boo=boo's and it stung like heck and stained the skin bright red? I fear I may be doomed...
