In similarity to a previous post dating back to October of 2021, new work has been carried out on establishing a bettering electrical Earth ground for telluric (through the Earth) Tesla communication via longitudinal transmission.

So that to establish a decent connection with the surrounding Earth, either volumetric or surface area must be adhered to when choosing the type of ground configuration. As this matter was presented upon in one of the lectures given at the 11th annual Energy Science & Technology Conference, the employment of Earth radials would be a suitable method of grounding at first glance. Although in this case, limitations in property size persist, which has led to an alternate approach at this solution, involving volumetric ground. That is, a metallic body of large volume is buried into the Earth, in which it acts capacitively upon the surrounding Earth, granted the medium’s characteristic conductivity. It should be noted that the location in which this operation is occurring possesses relatively poor soil conductivity, since the surrounding geography is an ancient alluvial flat. Thus, this presents mostly sandy loam and granite to the surrounding area.

This project involved the application of two 55 gallon galvanized steel drums, whereby both have been welded together, but sealed in such a way so as to create a completely uniform and hollow compounded cylinder, possessing two 55 gallon drums for a total of 110 gallons of holding.

In order to encase the drums in Earth, a suitable hole had been dug for which a couple of inches from the soil’s surface would graze the top lid of the drums. The dimensions of the hole was approximately 2.5 feet in diameter, at a depth of 7 feet.

These drums were then filled with regular tap water, (110 gallons of water in total), giving a total mass of 1,005 pounds, including the weight of both drums.

The tedious process was then finalized with the covering of the drums with moistened soil, and the addition of iron sulfate and epsom salt. Both of which were added so that to increase the conductivity of the surrounding soil, which maximizes the performance of transmission through the natural medium.

A post will be made shortly afterwards detailing the process of constructing a testing platform for coils and radio apparatuses, which are to be connected to the grounded drums.
