Initial Receive Testing with New Telluric Ground Setup
Using an extremely simplistic setup for the first round of testing by employing the recently buried ground system, a transceiver is used to receive various stations by primarily using the telluric component of the transmitting station. In this video, the second clip lead of the transceiver is simply “floating” or disconnected from anything, in which it would conventionally be equipped with an aerial. Since the received station, WRMI Florida, is audibly fading, this indicates fluctuation in ionospheric refraction, with respect to the floating clip lead of the transceiver. As the station is being received, granted the primary end of the transceiver is terminating onto a large capacity buried in the Earth, it may be deduced that there exists a definite telluric component being received. This is confirmed by the removal of the clip lead going to Earth, in that the station respectfully diminishes almost completely.
