Variac Operation Changes BRS Neon Operation.
- One would assume that 27 volts from a variac inputed through a 4/1
step up transformer, which then becomes roughly equivalent to
household voltage of 120 volts, would be the same thing as actually
using that household voltage. However it is not, as far as the BRS
is concerned. The process then blinks rapidly, where the number of
blinks per second correspond to the resonant frequency of the earth
at between 8 to 12 hz, or between 16 and 24 discharges per second.
This was actually measured a number of years ago by VHS tape
recording the process and counting the blinks of on and off over a
number of frames, where this was shown to be ~ 24 blinks per second.
Now the reason that this was not thought to be a function of earth
resonance, was the determination that perhaps it is the actual length
of the bulbs that determines how long the discharge takes to blink on
and off. This may be true since last year when a 100 ft copper
tubing was partially buried in the low section of garden ground, the
small neon connection then seemed to blink very much faster, so fast
in fact that it appeared to be going at even 100 blinks or so per
second, or it may have even been blinking in accordance to the 60 hz
power grid signal. Additionally when the small bulb is placed
directly across the BRS midpoints with variac control of the process,
the blinking can be regulated by the voltage input, where the
blinking can be made to go facster by increasing the variac voltage.
In any case here, what the variac accomplishes through its two
transformers is to isolate the process from ground. This then
prevents the blinking from occuring. When the process is directly
driven from a wall outlet the blinking does occur at the rate
mentioned. Here is a jpeg of the blinking process caught with the
camera catching the on portion of a blink.
