    figured id post a short update ...i removed the bridge circuit and wound another air core transformer with 550 turns on secondary and 100 turns on primary ( yes step-up) or resonant transformer, the primary came from an old microwave cooling fan motor and the secondary (for now) is a strand of cat5 solid wire) with this setup i found it interesting that it fired up a cfl although my goal is to see how much usable power i can get from this wire antenna setup next step is to raise my antenna to 40 then 50 and stop at 60 ft off the ground if i go too high the wind here is terrible it would just get ripped apart ....

    i did however wind a 3' coil with the same wire im using as my antenna strung across my yard to see if erecting a coil 30' in the air at a single location would produce the same results ...the answer is no i only got 60vac with 27ua .
    Their must be a reason i get much more covering a larger area than having an antenna just going straight up...

      OK so here is what i have as of now i wound a couple transformers using ferrite e cores i salvaged from some old pcb boards i had lying around i have a total of around 10 different transformers ive been using different gage wire and different winding ratio to find the best combination .

      What i have found is if i run my input from my spark gap to the primary of one of my transformers and run the secondary to my tesla style air core coil it will excite the coil to light a cfl (without any additional electronics) .

      i have taken readings of the power from each transformer the base (starting ) or input voltage is anywhere from 450 t0 500 vac it varies ...the maximum i have gotten is over 2000vac i almost fried one of my meters as it only went to 1000vac and i didnt realize i would be able to get that kinda voltage.

      i will post all my findings when im finished with my tests im trying to make detailed notes and each circuit ive tried with notations of what works and what doesnt....

      so far so good though...

        not sure if anyone is still interested in this thread but here goes anyway...

        i have been trying to light cfl`s and standard bulbs using the antenna setup ive mentioned earlier in this thread ive been making changes as i find a better solution to what im trying to do...

        now i have wound several transformers and built several low voltage dc to ac inverter circuits one i have will light a 10 watt cfl (highest i have) 25 watt standard and any led bulb ( well any that i have) on 8 to 9 vdc will also work on 12vdc

        now if i connect this to my rectifier ciucuit i built it will pulse the led bulb but not the other lamps...(not enough current)

        although i was able to light 5 bars of 6 bright leds a total of 30 to what seemed to me full brightness but it doesnt take much to light these as they were removed from an old led screen tv... somewhere around 14.5 vdc per bar... but they did stay lit up till i unhooked them a week later...

        (so in my opinion that is performing work)

        now i have a question or better yet i need some help figuring out how to get more current from this setup if anyone can help please do and if you need my current schematics ill snap pics of them as i only have them hand drawn...still a work in progress

        im using a toroid wound with 85 turns of 30 gage enameled wire and over that 5 to 6 turns of 17 to 18 gage enameled wire this stepped the voltage down and the current up but the only way it will work as alot of you know you must have some sort of switch between the gnd and positive or in other words between the antenna and gnd ive tried it on the gnd before it enters the transformer and on the antenna side before it enters the transformer works either way but on the gnd side you get more current for some switch is a adjustable spark gap (home made) ...

        now is their any way i can either improve on my transformer setup or a better type of switch setup ?

          ive been very busy sorry for not checking in sooner but have been having some family issues....

          that aside ive redone alot of my original setup ...

          1st i dropped my antenna and mounted it on a pulley system for easy raising and lowering of the wires in the event of a storm and adjustments if need be..

          2nd i went back to my EE core ferrite transformer but rewound it with a quadfiller primary 4 layers of 50 turns total of 200 give or take and a bifiller secondary of 7 turns with the begining of the first strand connected to the end of the second and using one of the single strands as an output and the two connected as the other ( more current that way )...

          3rd ive added a hv capacitor bank in series with my spark gap ( tried a neon as a spark gap it eats up the current before it enters the transformer) im using a homemade adjustable spark gap with blunt tips .

          4th here is the kicker i built a small single transistor inverter that works from 3vdc up to 14vdc without blowing my tranny the transistors ive tried are 2sc1061 works good the tip31 and 3055 ive also tried some fets but the tip31 is my choice for now as i have almost 100 of them incase of smoke lol

          ive also built a rectifer/voltage boster circuit to run this inverter and it does indeed work ...

          my antenna system is drawing in over 500vac after running it through my cap bank and transformer and stepping it down and through my rectifier im getting (unloaded) 125vdc 15ma which is not bad but loaded with the inverter and a small led night light (not those dinky dim pieces of crap) this one is very bright will light is up and keep it lit as long as i leave it hooked up no charging caps and dumping them into a transformer yada yada ...that takes too long this setup runs straight from the antenna my caps are only for stability output under the load is 5vdc 12ma not really enough for an incandescent light bulb but with a electrolytic capacitor across the positive and negative of the rectifier it can be done as i have done it but as stated before it takes time to charge them and a timer/ dump circuit to dump the charge into the inverter i wasnt looking for pulsing a current i was trying for realtime power usage..

          im almost their at least i think so...

          ill post my updated schematics if ya want to take a look at what ive put together...

          now one thing i did notice is that sometimes when it rains my power drops but other times its stable ..wierd ...something in the rain perhaps ?

          first time it happened i thought it was a fluke but its happened several times ... as i said wierd...

          have a good one happy testing !!!

            Please do. A bill of materials and a diagram of the layout of the entire system including the antenna and grounding specifics would be helpful also.

            Not really weird. It's still not clear to me what energy your system is intercepting but if it is cosmic rays or electromagnetic transmissions it is easily explained by more dense matter in the air (the water) absorbing and/or dispersing the energy before it gets to your antenna. It would be similar to a cloud passing between the sun and a photovoltaic solar panel. It may also be affecting your grounding system.
