EXPERIMENT WITH A COPPER GROUND PIPE
(G. Vassilatos)Please observe the precautionary notes placed at the beginning of this article! When you have,try a simple experiment for yourself. Obtain a short (2 feet) section of copper pipe from anyhardware store. Make a small cut into the top of this with a hacksaw. The cut is made so that youmay twist into it a secure wire lead. Although the placement of the pipe is most important for many radionic experiments, you will not be required to select the most potent spot. While thereare those whose qualitative sensitivities permit such a direct location of highly "active" groundlocations, there are more quantitative methods to assist in this necessary survey. If you wish toconduct your experiments outdoors, you will need appropriate portable radios and the like. Inthis case, you will more readily discover the phenomena which we will mention. Plants are greatindicators for determining the right placement of ground antennas and earth batteries Ã¢¼â¼ asthey are also great indicators of subsurface mineral content.If you wish to establish the very best point, find a place where dark green vegetation thrives.Empirical explorations will serve you best. While desertified plots of earth generally reveal theabsence of easily accessible ground currents, you will discover an amazing phenomenon in sucha location. Wait until the ground is soft. I usually wait until after a good rainfall before drivingmy experimental antennas down, having selected a very verdant garden strip just below myoffice window. You will need an available window, if you wish to maintain the arrangementwith the radio indoors. Wire will be run from your receiver to the ground antenna, so it isimperative that your window coincide with the ground point which you have selected.Wear gloves when performing this portion of the experiment. Using a small sledge, carefullydrive in a 2 foot long copper pipe. The pipe you choose can be much longer according to your local needs. I left a 4 inch section above ground for the hookup. Obtain a sufficient length of coaxial cable (RG 58 works fine) to establish a lead between the pipe and your radio receiver. If long enough, an old straight electric guitar cable will do. I clipped off both phono plugs and usedthe center conductor for my experiments. Neatly trim away the outer shielding with rubber tape.First connect the center lead directly to the "aerial" terminal of your receiver. If your receiver hasonly an external antenna, connect the ground lead directly to this antenna. Now carefully dropthis wire from your window to the ground antenna. Close the window to hold the line, and gooutside to establish your connection.
The line will instantly be flooded with ground currents, very high potentials which will not cause"shock", but which may over-excite your system. Take care not to handle these lines for too longa time without rubber gloves. The line from ground may appear "dead" to all appearance, but it isa source of powerful vitalistic effects which can cause fatigue and other congestive sensations.Once attached to your receiver, leave the wire alone. The ground currents may be applied to anykind of receiver. I successfully received television signals with a ground antenna, obtaining
