REMOTE ARIZONA, USA - Marcus Kipper has been demonstrating a technology that purportedly yields up to ten times the power output over what is put in. After five trips of ten hours each and $14,000 later, Wesley Crosiar of California says he has uncovered the secret to the device in what appears to be blatant trickery -- hidden wireless microwave transmission of power.
The device consists of a 12-volt battery that runs a motor, which in turn runs an alternator, that then, after a rectifier, passes energy through a specially designed coil that is tucked between the motor and the alternator -- allegedly to extract the energy from electromagnetic fields being emitting from both -- in order to then charge an output battery or run a load. Once the system is operating, the loop can be closed, and ten times the current begins to flow through the wires. This causes the insulation on the wires to begin melting, followed by arcing, at which point 100 times the energy flows, even melting the wires.
Supposedly, this is possible because the device is tapping "ionic energy" from the surrounding aetheric medium found between the motor and the alternator.
Not so, according to Crosiar, who has documented reasons to believe the device is actually powered by local wireless transmission of microwave power. The power is picked up by the antenna coil that consists basically of several 3-inch loops of wire, approximately matching the wavelength of the microwave.
Behind the Curtain of Oz
Crosiar said he recently took a look around Kipper's property and discovered a microwave dish situated about 150 feet from the home, tucked back away in the trees, trained on the home. He speculates that a microwave oven that he once saw in an adjoining room could have also been modified to do the trick as well. Kipper later denied ever having a microwave, but both Crosiar and his wife saw it on one of their visits.
Crosiar said that when Kipper gives a demonstration in his home (which seems to be one of the only places the device will work), he says something like, "Feel the wires starting to get hot?!" It is then, Crosiar guesses, that Kipper's wife (who is usually in an adjoining room during the demonstration) flips a switch, activating the microwave dish, which then causes a transmission of energy to the coils.
This would also explain why, when Kipper holds his clamp-on amp meter in the air above the device, the meter shows a current of up to two amps. The diameter of the fluke enclosure and the diameter of the coil antenna are roughly the same.
"One of my friends told me the U.S. military has had this technology for a long time," said Crosiar, referring to the ability to transmit power via microwave for up to six miles. "It is highly classified."
Crosiar has replicated the effect using a cheap microwave oven. He placed the coil inside the oven, threading the coil ends up through the top of the oven to then connect to the rectifier and battery. The coil configuration picks up the microwave frequencies and causes a high current to flow in the wire.
When the microwave transmitter is turned on, the current goes from 0.5 amps up to 7 to 8 amps as the wires act as an antenna for the microwave power. That much energy causes the insulation on the wires to begin melting in spots. Then, the next jump to 70 to 80 amps happens when the wires start arcing, short-circuiting the battery, filling the room with smoke within a fraction of a second. If the wires are not immediately disconnected from the battery, they begin to glow red.
Of course, that is not what Kipper says. As far as the observers are concerned, they are witnessing copious amounts of free energy flowing in from the aether. Melt down.
Crosiar was witness to this show on numerous occasions, and said it was very convincing and impressive.
The room where this demonstration takes place is lined with screen from the waist up. Screen mesh blocks microwave radiation. The motor is sitting on a small child's table below the level of the screen mesh. As far as the visitor is concerned, it is just mosquito netting in a sun-room, and making do with what is lying around. Reasonable enough.
Crosiar points out that when the device is demonstrated "out in the desert," Kipper's pick-up truck is situated nearby, and probably has a microwave horn. This is not the kind of horn that honks, but one installed for the purpose of microwave broadcast. Crosiar also points out that Kipper gives some kind of excuse as to the depletion of the battery in his truck. He quotes Kipper as claiming that it is related to the phenomenon of batteries becoming depleted when UFOs are nearby, as some people have reported.
The Elusive Grail
Kipper has been at this since at least 1990. He no longer sports the beard and headband, but has a clean-cut look.
Crosiar came along around three years ago, and put up his life savings to get involved.
He attempted to replicate the technology, but it would only work when Kipper was around. He was so baffled that he even wondered if maybe Kipper, who is a Wiccan, wasn't playing some kind of occult trick on his mind to make him see an illusion of something happening that was not.
The device itself is very simple. If it were what Kipper claims it to be, this device should therefore work just about anywhere, but it does not.
About a year ago, Crosiar had thought maybe the device was picking up energy from high power lines, serving as a wireless transformer. He theorized that Kipper's property must be near an underground high-power transmission line. Taking his replicated device to several locations underneath high power lines, and determining that no energy was being picked up through the coil, he disproved that notion.
One of the final tell-tale signs and last straws was when Crosiar showed up at Kipper's place and requested that he run it there in the driveway, not in his home. The device had run in Kipper's porch before, but Crosiar could not get it to work when he returned home. Kipper fiddled with it for about an hour but could not get it to run. It was on this same trip that Crosiar discovered the microwave dish out behind Kipper's home.
Crosiar gives the exact ingredients of the simple system, so that anyone can build it and prove to themselves that it is just microwave energy that is being picked up -- not "ionic energy."
- Two 12-volt batteries, one for input, and one to receive the output charge until the loop is closed.
- One DC motor (the kind used in a tread mill work best).
- One belt.
- One alternator that uses neodymium magnets on its rotor, with nickel. This is probably not crucial, but it is what Kipper prescribes -- most likely for effect.
- Full wave bridge rectifier.
- Six foot length of 12 gauge wire.
- Microwave oven.
The DC motor is run by one of the 12-volt batteries. The motor is hooked to the alternator by a belt. The alternator is connected to the full-wave bridge rectifier. The rectifier is connected to the output battery via a specially wound coil.
The crucial, but not highly finicky part is winding the coil. Take two 6-foot lengths of 12-gauge wire (preferably stranded, not solid copper). With the two lengths of wire parallel to each other, tie half a square knot in the wires, as if they were one wire, leaving about a 3-inch diameter loop. Then tie another similar knot, but with the overlap going the other way so that the overlap of wires alternates, from one knot to the next, down the 6-foot length of wire. You then twist these loops so they wind back on themselves into a thicker overlapped toroid loop of the same diameter. That is the coil.
One wire connects the positive of the bridge to the positive of the battery, and the other wire connects the negatives.
If you don't want to see the battery short-circuit effect, then you just do one length of wire like this, and run it between the positive lead of the bridge and the positive lead of the battery, and run a regular wire between the negative leads.
