“My first observations positively terrified me as there was present in them something mysterious, not to say supernatural, and I was alone in my laboratory at night”
– Nikola Tesla, 1901 article “Talking With The Planets“
“The sounds I am listening to every night at first appear to be human voices conversing back and forth in a language I cannot understand. I find it difficult to imagine that I am actually hearing real voices from people not of this planet. There must be a more simple explanation that has so far eluded me.”
– Nikola Tesla 1918
It is the goal of this device to receive thought waves from the deceased; assuming that those on the other side are able to communicate this way. A simple crystal radio, it may be possible to pickup the intentional thoughts of those in the spirit realm. Patience is the best tool for using this device.
Athough Tesla used different parts, this radio’s basic L-C (Inductor-Capacitor) circuit uses a similar schematic to what Tesla experimented with in his early days. The versatile 1N34A crystal germanium diode used here, substitutes for the tricky rotating nickel detectors and sensitive relays, used by Tesla in the late 1800’s.
You can listen to AM broadcasts with this radio, but it was made to be used in other ways. (Besides, AM radio wasn’t exactly what Nikola Tesla was interested in…in fact, he believed it was a waste of energy to transmit and receive Hertzian waves!)
Using the included audio cable, connect this device to an amplifier, voice recorder, or computer along with a reliable program such as AUDIO HYJACK PRO (for MAC) or AUDACITY (for Windows).
