What you can get from an antenna is lots of DC voltage. What you can't
get is enough current to run a conventional motor.
Hey, look at the pic on page 1:
He has *two* Keithley electrometers. They look like mine...
But you probably don't have the salt-and-pepper sports jacket with
1960's style tie.
Say Mike are you an EE or a Physicist? (It OK to be a bit of both.)
I'm a fish monger, well really a shrimp monger. hmm... can a shrimp seller
be a monger?
My wife and I run a small retail shrimp store on a marina.
Been doing electronic tech type work most of my life, but now it is a
Science was always high on my interest list, my last job was working for a
we had a lot of fun on worthless projects, but I did learn a lot!
Any reason you ask?
Mmmm, fresh shrimp. (Living near Buffao, NY the best I do is fresh
water fish, trout, walleye, perch...)
Ahh is that where you made an electrostatic generator out of plastic
No you just seemed to have a physicist's mentality... Whatever that
I mis-spent my youth as a physics lab rat. Long nights in the lab
taking data that only a handful of people would care about.
Ya, we're still getting them everyday even with the BP problem.
I'm in Panama City Fl. we did see any oil here, one day they did say
they got about 10lbs of tar balls off the beach,
Actually no, that was a home project just to delight me and my
physicist buddy. I gave it to a local museum and when I checked
back they had done a clean out and tossed it.
Kinda ticked me off, I did a nice job on it.
A while back I repaired my son's science teachers Van de graaff
generator, I got to play with it a while before I returned it :-)
I mis-spent my youth also. I say that because early on in school I tested
in the top 2% in science. I didn't have any kind of mentor to guide me
along until I was in my late 40's and then I didn't have any math to
make it really useful.
Spent most of my years as a tech in assembly and repair on video
equipment, geophysical test equipment, automobile test equipment,
worked in an electric motor repair shop till I got layed of during
the Carter recession. I worked with the physicist building high power,
high frequency ultrasonic equipment, for use in mostly aqueous solutions.
Right now I have work on me and my son's electric gocart, and I'm about
60% finished with two solar collectors simular to this;
Got a 4 ft tesla coil that I never finished, damn!
But enough about me....

Hee Hee, OK the trout come from the stream behind my house. Google
Java Center NY to see the area. Lots of cows, not many people. I go
fishing with 'the boys' at Onieda lake north of Syracuse in late
Septemeber. This boat fishing is mostly an excuse for drinking beer
at 8:00 in the morning. (Though some are more serious than I am.)
I've fished in lake Erie, but I don't eat them.
Ok, hadn't heard of "Java Center". Other than the NYS Thruway, we haven't
traveled too much around that part of NY (why?). I lived in Hyde Park for a
couple of decades and in Vermont for fifteen years after that, so I'm much
more familiar with Eastern NY.
