Parallel Resonant Field Translation for the Amateur

The amateur investigator has long been daunted in any effort requiring the measurement or use of parallel fields. It is only in the last few years that an inexpensive Mollot cell has become available, and those in only a few ratings.

The device which this article will assist in constructing uses two cells, both of standard rating, although one of them has had its gravity boosted with and oversized bleeder coil. This particular Field Translator is powered by a 1.6 gram atomic Boron ambient energy focus battery with air grounding as required by federal regulations. Complete specs can be found in any good Muonics handbook. The phase reference plate in my set was salvaged from an old CVB system and is stainless steel doped with Cerium Oxide. The plate is set on a gimble so that it can be adjusted to almost as many parallels as professional equipment although it is restricted to a single hemispheric radian.

Three centimeters above the center of the plate is the neutral terminal of a commercial Mollot cell rated at 2.6 Hartleys with a static gravity of 5 degrees Kilmer. The negative terminal is fitted with a bleeder coil taken from a D-16 lifter, thus boosting the static gravity to 18 degrees! That coil feeds directly to the “IN” line of the phase plate. The “OUT” line feeds to the positive terminal of another Mollot cell rated at 1.08 Hartleys with a static gravity of 2 degrees Kilmer. The positive terminal of the plate cell leads directly to the Boron focus battery. The plate “Out” cell has negative terminal bled to an OEC converter, which in turn feeds to the air grounded wave sensor rod.

And there you have it! With this field Translator you can contact about 80% of the known resonant field realms of the first hemispheric radian and that can be raised to 85% by adding a second bleeder coil to the phase plate cell, by remember that this will require that the “OUT” cell will have to be bled through a much larger OEC to avoid “stelching.”

In operation, the system is simplicity itself. Upon completion, you should find yourself more or less in focus with one parallel or another. A few light touches to the free neutral terminal of the “OUT” cell and the wave sensor rod should sharpen the contact. To find a new parallel, simply adjust the angle of the phase plate.
