to the March ‘96 edition of the newsletter. Due to an oversight by the freight
company or a quick fingered ASIO agent, I am now permanently computerless. At
least they stole it while it was still broken, so if anyone offers you a laptop
at the local pub, make sure it works!! Thanks again to “Mr Steam” for the
loan of his computer once again..
February meeting began at 8.05 PM with 25 people present including 5 new faces
and 2 apologies, one being our guest speaker for the night. Unfortunately she
had damaged her back and was in considerable pain and so her talk was out of the
question. She has however offered to still do the talk at a later date. We
managed to fill up the space quite adequately with talks by Roger, Leon and
George. Dan reported that we still have around $250 after this months expenses,
which should allow us to subscribe to the New
Energy News newsletter. This is a monthly publication from Salt Lake City
that is now reprinted in Queensland and is available for only $35 per year. The
secretaries report followed with the only correspondence being from ASTRO Vic.

was then on to general business with Andrew mentioning that he has booked two
stalls at the upcoming Body, Mind and Psychic Festival on the 12th and 13th of
April. Anyone who wants a stall please contact Andrew for details. Dino then
talked about the Moller Merlin 200 Aerobot complete with a photograph of him
sitting in the cockpit looking very smug. The interesting thing about this
machine is the engine which is a revolutionary type of rotary design using
ceramic coatings which means the engine does not need any external cooling and
can be run extremely lean, giving 25% to 30% fuel savings over similar sized
units. The engines are being made available as separate units with a power
rating of 1.5 Kw and a length of only 300mm making them ideal for applications
where space is at a premium.
then gave a talk on his home made Rife generator, explaining how he had made it
out of a lot of leftovers from his workshop - it even has valves!! He also gave
some feedback regarding the effects it has had on several family members. This
varied dramatically according to the ailment being treated. Leon was next on the
presentation list with an alternative viewpoint regarding the MRA device and the
TOMI magnetic motor design. He mentioned the inverter design that he is working
on and also managed to sell eight or nine second hand 120Ah batteries in the
last speaker was George who gave part four of his “4D” talk series. He
presented the idea that the light and heat that we perceive from the sun
doesn’t actually come from the sun, but is the result of an interaction of
scalar fields that the sun emits, and our own earth’s energy envelope. The
meeting concluded with a short video on Anti-matter and a shortened version of
Dan Winter’s Correspondences. This suitably bored most of the audience who
exited to the kitchen for tea and bickies.
SYMPOSIUM ON NEW ENERGY
those who have lots of money, this years symposium will be held in Denver,
Colorado once again from the 25th to the 28th of April. This years speakers
include Dennis Cravens, PhD, (Patterson Fuel Cell); Mark Hendershot (Hendershot
Motor); Harold Putoff (Zero Point Energy); Jim Griggs (Hydrosonic Pump); Eugene
Mallove (Cold Fusion); Tom Valone (Free Energy and Propulsion); Edgar Mitchell
(Ex Apollo Astronaut giving a New Energy update); Harold Aspden (Ferro
Magnetics); Peter Lindeman (Thermodynamics); Dale Pond (Keely Motor); Win
Lambertson (Solid State Conversion). There are many more speakers listed
including everyone’s favourite Dan Winter on gravitational energy and emotion.
ENGINE (PART 5)
month we look at some of the improvements that have been made over the years of
development of this engine. Even Stirling himself made an improvement over his
original design by adding an “economiser”, which was later termed a
“regenerator”. This device conserves heat and thereby reduces the amount of
fuel required in supplying the heat to run the engine. During the cooling cycle
of the engine, the excess heat passes through a bundle of wires connecting the
hot and cold ends of the engine. The heat that has been transferred from the gas
into the wire regenerator will be stored there until the gas moves the other
way, back toward the hot end of the cylinder. This time the heat will be
transferred from the wire back into the gas, as now the gas is cooler than the
wires. Thus the same engine performance can be gained with less external heat
being applied. Taking the “regenerator” another step further is to use the
same principle to regain the other major wasted heat source in this engine and
that is to regain the excess heat going up the stack. The flue gasses, after
passing by the heater tubes, can be used to preheat the incoming air for
combustion, and considerable fuel savings can thereby be obtained.
improvement came about by pressurising the air in the cylinder. Assuming
conditions were right for the engine to double the available pressure during the
heating cycle, just using atmospheric pressure would see 14.7 lbs/square inch
being produced. If the original pressure was raised to 60 lbs/square inch, then
the heated air would be at 120 lbs/square inch. Thus a lot more work would be
obtainable with the same heat input. Experiments were tried using helium and
hydrogen gasses, but while they did increase efficiencies their use caused a lot
of sealing problems in the cylinder and so were discarded.
improvements have come about by the use of advanced materials which have become
available over recent years. The use of Teflon for engine seals overcame a lot
of the original sealing difficulties with even the air filled engines back in
the 70’s when it became available. Ceramics could also play a part in future
designs as a cheap alternative to the very expensive heat resisting stainless
steels and other nickel based alloys which are needed at present to withstand
the heat required to run a Stirling engine efficiently.
there is the Rhombic drive system which is a twin crankshaft arrangement which
provides perfect balance and excellent motions for the piston and displacer. It
also allowed the piston - displacer arrangement of the original Stirling design
to be used without the need for a pressurised crankcase. This greatly reduced
sealing problems for manufacturers and allowed engines of greater power to be
that’s it for this month with the final “episode” next time which will
look at the future of the Stirling engine.
and Japan have signed an agreement for a series of test landings of a one third
scale model of a proposed unmanned reusable winged space-vehicle. These will be
held at the Woomera Test Site this year, commencing in May. The model, weighing
3/4 of a tonne, will be
released from a helicopter at a height of 1500 metres, 2.5 kilometres from the
airfield and will glide to a steep fast landing, using on-board computers to
adjust the landing trajectory. The airfield will be surrounded with electronic
navigation, guidance and monitoring equipment and a flight control facility will
be installed. This experiment (ALFLEX - the automatic landing flight experiment)
this experiment will involve more than 20 landings of this model spacecraft at
the Woomera Field, which has been chosen from more than 100 possible sites
around the World.
offers a high standard of infrastructure, first class transport and
communications facilities, a well established town-ship with a skilled
work-force and an efficient and co-operative administration.
The project is expected to inject some $2 million into the Australian
economy and will enhance Woomera’s emerging reputation as a prime site for
experimental space programmes. Under an
interim agreement the principle Australian contractor, British Aerospace, has
already engaged local contractors to start work on equipment foundation around
the runway, and the refurbishment of the main hanger complex. The influx of
people, including up to 200 Japanese personnel over the duration of the project,
is expected to bring substantial economic benefits to local and regional
businesses. Australian Space Officials hope the ALFLEX project will lead to
Woomera hosting the entire Japanese shuttle programme, scheduled to start
servicing a permanent space station in 2000.
is a copy of information obtained from the Internet regarding the Howard Johnson
motor and how the Japanese are intending to produce it after the original patent
expires next year.
patent for this device was awarded to Howard Johnson in 1979 -- US patent
#4151431. Johnson's device is a passive (all magnet) design which he claims
results in perpetual motion. Scott Little saw this device in person once, and
described it in this discussion group -- or in some other correspondence. After
they saw Johnson's device, they went home and built a model in the lab, and it
didn't work. One thing I recall, is that he said Johnson's prototype was built
by using a Lazy Susan as the armature. I don't know if the Johnson motor works.
Based on the cover of his patent, where Johnson shows a graph relating to the
properties of the ferrite magnet used. Johnson apparently believed that the type
of magnet is very important. But no where else in the patent, is the type of
magnet ever mentioned. How he got this simple device, which overtly claims to
result in perpetual motion through the patent office, is a mystery.
patent expires next year. A Japanese motor company (Nihon Rihen) has apparently
been waiting in the wings, and was awarded a US patent this summer, #5436518,
for a motor (Kawai Motor) that has many features in its magnetic circuit that
are remarkably similar to Johnson's device. Kawai's invention uses active
looks to me, like the Japanese may have snuck this invention by the US patent
examiner by posturing it as just another of a nearly endless variety of
electronic commutated brushless DC motors. The patent is very long, and will
bore you to death. There is no mention of perpetual motion or over-unity in the
patent description. But, there are a few odd paragraphs and sentences in the
Kawai patent, including one paragraph which describes input and output power.
This is done in a confusing way -- maybe intentionally confusing. But if you
look carefully at the numbers, and if you are capable and willing to make a few
calculations on the side, you will find that it claims

GRAY’S EMA-4 MOTOR
in a small laboratory in Van Nuys, California is a curious creation which, based
on the results of dynamometer tests and other rigid trials, claims to be a
possible solution to the World’s energy problems. It is called the EMA motor
(Electro-Magnetic Association) and in technical jargon is described as a
“Digital Pulsed”, “Time Phased”, and “Servo Controlled” device.
Developed by EVGray Enterprises this unique engine runs on the principle of
electro-magnetic transformation. It requires no fossil fuel, recycles its own
energy, creates no waste and is extremely quiet. It’s size, weight and
horse-power ratios are comparable to motors and turbines now in current use. The
EMA’s only external power source consists of four six volt batteries which
never need recharging and have the same life expectancy as the standard auto
describes the operation of his motor as similar to “recreating lightning”.
He claims the engineering and scientific world has known that this recreation is
possible but has not known how to do it. “When lightning hits the ground
causing a 10,000,000 volt build up, where does the energy come from to take it
from a static charge to a lethal charge ?.
Nobody really knows”.
regard to the motor, power from the high voltage section is put through a system
of electrical circuitry to produce a series of high voltage energy spikes. These
spikes are transferred to a small control unit, which in turn operates the major
motor unit. The control unit, acting in a manner similar to that of a
distributor in an internal combustion engine, regulates these spikes, determines
their polarity and directs their power to selected electro-magnets in the main
unit. While this occurs, the recycle/regeneration system is recharging the
batteries with 60 to 120 amp pulses. The electro-magnets are located on both the
rotor and stator of the large motor, and it is the attraction and repulsion
between the two sets of magnets which causes the motor to operate and generate
power. Once in motion the motor recharges the batteries as a result of this
recycle/regeneration system, but to prevent condensation in the main cylinder, a
half pound of air pressure has to be maintained. When the ambient temperature is
90 degrees Fahrenheit, the motor will operate at 170 degrees. In short, the principle of the engine is to create electricity and also
recycle energy, by the fact that every time the magnets are energised, the high
voltage back EMF peak causes a charge to go back into the battery.
key factor is the battery quality, so after extensive research Gray chose
batteries furnished by the McCullock Corporation of L.A. These batteries include
extra large plates separated by indestructible glass-rubber separators and
especially formulated lead oxide composition. This is enclosed in an
ultra-lightweight plastic case. Two
of the six volt batteries are used for operation while the other two serve as a
reservoir. The motor needs only to run at 500 RPM for the normal recharging
system to work. It’s recharging capabilities are such that the next version
won’t have an alternator or air pump. The air pump will be replaced by blades
on the rotor.
engine is approximately 90% efficient compared to 30% for a normal internal
combustion engine. A prime factor in this is the friction control by the
“magnetic vacuum” created in the drum, which literally takes the pressure
off the end bearing and allows the rotor to float within the drum. The motor
creates power surges one behind the other in extremely quick succession, in the
order of micro-seconds. This allows direct control of the magnetic flux, and as
the magnetic flux in a coolant source, external cooling is no longer needed.
Gray says the engine is not affected by rain, heat, cold or any other type of
inclement weather, or by driving through tunnels. All the motor needs is oxygen.
Due to the magnetic field orientation being 360 degrees in all directions
another field system cannot operate within this same battery system. The new EMA
prototype will weigh about 320 lbs. and measures 12 inches in diameter and 18
inches in length. Most of the motor’s components can be built in a machine
shop with a mill and lathe, with the exception of the drum itself, magnets and a
few miscellaneous items bought in an auto-supply store.
safety features of the EMA are impressive, with no fan, no exposed high voltage
parts, no exhaust fumes, no fuel tanks to explode, no water reservoirs to
clog-up, freeze or over-heat. This all helps the reliability of the engine and
thus maintenance should minimised. It is also extremely quiet with the electric
motor noise being imperceptible when properly suppressed. Although Gray
conducted his first tests in 1961, this engine has not gone into production as
yet. However there has been renewed interest in this design with Creative
Science’s recent publications of design plans for a simple version of the
above device. A copy of these plans and the original Gray patent is available in
the Astro library.
