Adelaide Branch


Welcome to the December edition of the newsletter. Things still seem to be concentrating in the water area with different devices popping up here and there and claiming all sorts of wonderful effects, but can I use any of them to power my car?


Our meeting started at 8:15pm. Our treasurer reported that we have $620 in our account. Ashley informed us of  Ian's decision to invest in a set of 5 Zero Point Energy videos. Chemical companies are trying to reduce competition from herbs, already they've had comfrey made illegal. Peter showed us some info on the Care Free Water Conditioner which has been conditioning bore water for farming and Murray water for drinking. Dino showed us photos of his water experiment, showing the difference between before and after treatment with magnets. Plus there is a meeting at his place on water on November 30. Andrew S showed us his advancements with water conditioning and explained his plans and how he developed it so far. Frank C gave us some updates on the Elliott Wave Theory and commented on our civilisation and where we're at. Next we saw a video on Zero Point Energy From Water [I believe] featuring Jim Griggs Hydrosonic Pump, some work on electricity and its results when the voltage and frequency are right, and Stan Meyer's Water Fuel Cell Technology.


After last month's article on "smart fluids", Roger gave me some information on a practical use that they are already being put to. A London based company, Advanced Fluid Systems, has developed a miniature shock absorber powered by torch batteries that fits onto mountain bikes. The unit uses a "smart fluid" that changes it's viscosity when a voltage is applied to it as described in last month's article and works for up to three hours on two 9 volt batteries.

Word from Paris is that buses will soon be testing an environmentally friendly diesel fuel developed by the oil company Elf this Autumn. (Spring to us) The fuel contains 10% water and a secret additive to keep the water and diesel fuel emulsified. Elf says that the fuel cuts emissions of nitrogen oxides by a third and of microscopic particles by a half Does anybody know if this is Gunnerman's A-55 fuel or Elf s version of a similar product?


Lee Rogers from Iona, Florida, has invented a car that runs on compressed air with no fuel and no combustion used in the process. Lee began by modifying his 19977 Dodge Aspen station wagon. He removed all the fuel components of the engine, including the carburettor, spark plugs, fuel tank, fuel pump and exhaust system. He initially ran the Dodge on air from pressurised air tanks, but has since designed a compressor that provides a continuous supply of air to the engine. Claimed efficiency of the engine is 96% compared with 26% for a normal petrol engine. The engine can idle for 8 hours a day or more and can reach a top speed of 80 miles an hour. It also has a frosty cool appearance to it and is cold to touch while running. Rogers claims that there are "a couple of tricks to his invention- and has invested about $7,000 of his own money on it so far. The engine is fully covered by patents and although he has received some interest from the "Big 3- car makers, he is concerned that if one of them did invest in it that the whole project may be shelved. Consequently he is going it alone and intends to build "converter kits" which will adapt to any American built vehicle, mass produce them and sell them outright. Cost of these aftermarket kits is expected to be around $1,000 and can be installed by any mechanic.

The original battery remains in the car and is used to power the lights, accessories and to start up the air compressor. There are four air tanks in the system, with one main one and three reserves. As the vehicle drives along using the contents of one tank, another is being refilled from the compressor which is powered from the engine. Thus as the vehicle travels along, it is rebuilding it's own air supply.

Once a conversion kit is fitted to a vehicle, nitrogen is used to charge the tanks initially. This is a once off process which cleans, blows out all oil and fuel residue, cleaning the valves, the engine and everything else right out the exhaust. Speed control is obtained by using a conventional accelerator pedal, set up to deliver the air to the engine similar to the trigger mechanism on an air gun.

There is one problem that Rogers is still overcoming, and that is that at low speeds, the engine uses up the air pressure much more quickly. He states that at 5 to 15 mph, the engine doesn't run fast enough to rebuild the air supply. He claims that he is however very close to solving this problem, so I guess we shall wait and see if this one gets to the marketplace or disappears into the great black hole of good ideas.


This month you can BE TALLER

Following on from last month's article that simply by applying magnets to a water pipe will cause the descaling of pipes, this month talks about water "quality" and some of the more practical aspects of fitting magnets to your house water supply. This information comes from the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory Inc. in America.

"Magnetic treatment of water has reportedly improved the subjective taste of previously "dead water", suggesting that magnetism imparts a better water structure or biological "activation" which makes it more alive, in keeping with the "living water" descriptions of Schauberger, or the "orgone-charged" water of Reich. There are many devices and products on the market today which claim to produce "structured", "activated" or "charged" water, but the fact is, magnets are the cheapest and one of the most effective ways to accomplish this. Like the materials for building the Reich orgone accumulator, magnets are simple and inexpensive, and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to install them on your water pipes or automobile fuel line. Most importantly, you don't have to break into the lines with a hack saw. So long as you can find a part of the water line or fuel line which is composed of non-ferrous materials -- that is, which is made of brass, copper, aluminium, PVC, vinyl or rubber, and not of iron or steel which deflects the penetration of the magnetic fields -- then the magnets can be applied to the outside of the lines. However, the polarity of the magnetic installation is quite important - the SOUTH pole must face the pipe. Small and powerful ceramic magnets, measuring slightly less than 2" long by 1" wide by 0.4" thick, can be directly applied to the outside of any fuel or water supply line and secured in place with electrical tape or duct tape. They can be stacked to create even more powerful magnetic fields for larger diameter water or fuel lines.

For domestic household water systems: protecting solar water heaters, evaporative coolers, mist heads, ice-makers, dishwashers and other water-consuming appliances from scale deposition, as well as for use under sinks, before faucets and shower heads, to treat drinking and washing water, etc. Simply stack the magnets, apply and surround the outside of the water pipes close to the point of use (again, polarity is important!). No cutting of pipes or lines is necessary. You must apply the magnets to each hot and cold water pipe before each major water-consuming appliance where treatment is desired, and also under each faucet where desired.

Magnetic treatment of water has no known capacity to eliminate water pollution, and it should not be used as a substitute for methods proven to remove pollutants from the water. However, because the price of magnetic treatment is comparatively low, and relatively easy to install, your only risk is the small amount of time it takes to put the magnets into place.

* For 1/2" to 3/4" water lines, we recommend 4 magnets installed around the outside of each hot and cold water feed line where treatment is desired.

* For larger diameter water pipes, you will want to surround a short portion of the outside of the water pipe with the stacked magnets close to where it enters the home, with additional magnets on the feed lines just before each major appliance."

Next month I hope to have some research information gathered by the Department of Primary Industries on magnetic water treatment used by farmers on their irrigation systems.


This engine was first tested in 1992, however the inventor was unable to invest the required capital to produce a more sophisticated model. The device is an engine in which small quantities of water are turned into steam by the use of a magnetron as found in microwave ovens, which makes it much more efficient than conventional steam engines. In fact, the water droplets explode very much like air/petrol does in a conventional internal combustion engine.


1.    Magnetron from a medium power microwave oven. 

2.    Small 4-stroke single cylinder lawnmower engine with points and ignition system. 

3.    Automotive alternator with built-in rectifier and regulator, also 12 volt car battery. 

4.    "Trigger" mechanism from an aircraft "strobe"landing light or similar.


1 . The magnetron fits into the spark plug hole.
2. The distributor points are modified so that the contact is closed when the piston is at top dead centre and this contact is used to activate the aircraft strobe mechanism.
3. The high voltage from the strobe is connected to directly fire the magnetron which in turn produces steam which moves the piston.
4. The engine turns the alternator which keeps the. battery charged, and 'm turn supplies the electrical power for the magnetron.


1 Be extremely careful around the magnetron.

2. The strobe trigger delivers a very high voltage which can jump to ground.

3. Be sure to modify the distributor points so they close at the top dead centre. Timing advance depends on the power of the magnetron used and the amount of water. Try different carb sizes - drill out if needed.

4. Due to variables, don't expect high engine speeds without a little experimentation.

5. Start with a fully charged battery or your alternator won't work.

6. The energy produced is in excess of the power required to run the alternator but until you get the RPM up, and the parts working in harmony, it would be best advised to use a battery charger instead of the alternator.

7. An easy way to measure net power output after you have the alternator on line is to run a few 12 volt lights from the battery. You will see that the battery remains charged even with the lights on and the motor keeps on going.

Keeping up with the interest in water treatments amongst ASTRO members, here is an article about a British invention called the "Clearwave Water Conditioner". This device softens the water and treats the water to prevent calcification problems, particularly build up of deposits in pipes.

Instead of using expensive chemical treatment systems, the Clearwave works by bombarding the water with microprocessor controlled inaudible sonic pulses. The unit is simply clipped onto the pipe and then the two antennae are coiled around the pipe in opposing directions. When activated, a complex frequency modulated induction energy waveform causes turbulence in the water molecules and ion exchange in mineral atoms. This action changes the shape and size of the calcium carbonate crystals so that they are unable to adhere to any surface and do not precipitate out as hard scale. The reshaped crystals, now in a form called Argonite will retain this physical property for up to ten days, by which time the water will normally have been consumed or flushed to waste. As an added bonus, when the Argonite meets existing scale deposits it converts that scale into more Argonite and thus descales pipes and equipment. The product underwent exhaustive studies in the UK. In one instance it removed a 65mm layer of scale from a boiler, representing 20 years of buildup in just seven weeks.

There is a similar unit on the market here is South Australia called the Calclear. It fits externally to the incoming water pipe with the two antennae wrapped around the water pipe the same as the Clearwave unit. The Calclear water conditioner uses a computer generated signal that undergoes some 160 computer calculated frequency changes over a four minute cycle. The effects are the same in that Pipes are descaled, etc. Running cost are $5 per year and the cost is $399 for the basic unit.

Anyone need a way to check magnetic fields? Well here's a circuit that will allow you to do just that! It is simple, low cost, and if calibrated can be very accurate. It will distinguish between north and south poles and also the relative strength of magnets. It does this by outputting a voltage ABOVE 1/2 supply voltage for north poles and outputting a voltage BELOW 1/2 supply voltage for south poles. This causes the meter to either swing above centre zero for north poles and below zero for south poles. If you want to calibrate the instrument for a gauss field reading, you will have to come up with either a calibrated magnet or build yourself a circuit to do the calibration.

The Hall effect sensor has a side that is the measure side and as long as you have it toward the magnet it will tell you which pole it is and its relative strength.

I mounted my sensor on a piece of 2 conductor shielded wire about 3 feet long. This allowed me to move the sensor around freely. I mounted the components in a small aluminium box and used a small wall transformer to supply the power for the-circuit, although it could be battery powered just as easily.

SPECIAL NOTE: Change the value of the bottom 1000 ohm resistor so that the zero control (200 ohm potentiometer) is at it's centre when the meter pointer is in the centre position.


(1) UGN350lU Hall Effect sensor
(1) 10,000 ohm pot. for calibration
(1) 200 ohm panel mount potentiometer for meter zeroing
(2) 1000 ohm 1% metal film resistors, 1/4watt
(1) 50 microamp meter, preferably zero centre

The following device is an early version of what has come to be known as "The Joe Cell". This information is available on the Internet on David Galea's website on which the Victorian ASTRO group have information about their meetings. A couple of things that are not mentioned in the article is that the stainless steel tubes must only be 316 or 316L and must not have any magnetic properties at the welded seam. (test with a strong magnet) Also the insulating material must be pure rubber as what we consider "normal" electrical insulators may not work with this device and will actually "short out" the energy involved.

The Water Cell

NOTE: The design, construction and use of this device may be hazardous and extreme caution is to be taken when utilising high risk electricity and unknown gases. The author takes no responsibility of the device's safety or its use.

Have you ever wondered about having a car that could simply and cheaply run for days on end with HEAPS of power on hand ? Well, its been done! This is a power cell that I came across and have seen working here in Victoria, Australia.Connect this little beauty to a carburettor of an early model car ( pre Fuel injection / pre Leaded Fuel ) and watch it go.

When connecting this device to the carby, be sure to leave the normal petrol supply intact. Start the engine. The car will use the petrol feed for a little while ( about 3 hours ) then the vapour (name unknown) will start to feed into the carby. When it does, make sure your foot is ready on the clutch because a great increase in revs is usually a sign that the petrol feed has cut out and the vapour is now running the car.

This device once built, is to then be connected to a high current direct current power supply (eg. 60 Amps DC). This charge is to be left on the device for at least three hours or until bubbles start to appear on the surface of the water. When connecting the aluminium tube to the carby, use an insulating device so as to not to short the positive voltage on the tube to the negative earth on the cars carby. It is very important that ALL the welds are composed of pure stainless steel. The device seems not to work if impurities are added.

Although I have seen this device work, the inventor nor I know how it works. The output from the tube is odourless, it cannot be seen and doesn't act as a gas. It has been suggested by some witnesses that it seems to resemble cold fusion, but this cannot be proved. The water seems to change the charging properties. Water sampled so far is, tap water from in and around New South Wales and Victoria, rain water and mineral spring water. This information has been put here so that someone can build it for themselves and prove me wrong. It is very simple and cheap. The inventor used an old water fire extinguisher as the casing and a modified arc welder as the power supply.

On a recent test, the device was placed upright on the floor space on the passenger side of a car and driven for over 2000Kms without a fuel stop. Only 0.5cm, of the water had gone. It is still a mystery to myself and its inventor.


The next meeting will be, as usual, on the second Friday of the month, this time being FRIDAY 12TH DECEMBER. The doors will open at 7.30pm, while the meeting will start at 8pm.

This month we will have Brian Will talking about ........ROCKET POWER MUFFLERS

Brian has been experimenting on cars for many years, mainly in the area of power gain. During this time he has come up with a muffler that not only increases power but also claims fuel gains of up to 20% and lowers combustion temperatures at the same time. The unique design of this unit incorporates rotary tubes which draw the gasses away from the engine creating a turbine effect. So come along to the meeting and find out more about this South Australian invention.

Don't forget your $3 admission and something to share for supper. See you there!!
