In 2019 when Eric Dollard presented on the 20:1 scale model replica of the Colorado Springs Magnifying Transmitter, Dr. Adrian Marsh was there to help analyze the MWO, the Colorado Springs transformer and more. He was able to quickly figure out how to get the MWO pulse modulator to power the Colorado Springs transformer and several experiments were conducted on the fly.
This year, Dr. Marsh gave a comprehensive overview of using a Vector Network Analyzer to show more information about the resonant peaks, serial vs parallel mode and more. It is must easier to obtain this information with a VNA compared to using a current transformer and analog volt meter. It’s recommended that you do understand the old-school analog method because it is important to understand that but for ultra fine tuning, the VNA is the way to go.
You’ll see a lot of charts produced by the VNA output and Dr. Marsh shares the comparison between a very affordable VNA compared to his HP one that was a $100k unit when brand new. The results are extremely close.
In addition to the VNA presentation, you’ll also see a replication of Eric Dollard’s gold-ratio high voltage discharges! This is the first time this has been replicated by anyone other than Eric to our knowledge. This was done with equipment that Dr. Marsh brought over from the UK in a suitcase.
For the exact VNA used, this is the only one recommended: Vector Network Analyzer
