I recently attended the W.W.T. 2014 in Black Canyon City, AZ. As always, Chris and Henry put on a fantastic event for all those who attended. This year, there was a struggle to run coils outdoors due to lots of rain, but despite this, spirits were kept high! Henry, in the usual fashion, had his Tesla Band, with his own bipolar coil and two of Dr. Spark's bipolar coils, which worked flawlessly. Among other coils, there were some old fashioned SGTC's and SSTC's, and many other high voltage devices. Despite the weather, there was plenty of room in Henry's Shop for coils, and attendies came from around the world to visit the event.

Many thanks go out to Henry (Dr. Hankenstein) and Chris (Dr. Spark) for putting on yet another excellent Teslathon and I hope to be back next year! I took some photos of the event which can be viewed in W.W.T. 2014 gallery.

You can also see videos from the event at Dr. Spark's YouTube Channel.

At least you did the right thing instead of driving out to the woods and dumping it. Thanks.

Tesla wrote The True Wireless back in 1919 because he wanted to knock the prevailing orthodoxy of radio theory into a cocked hat. I am republishing the piece in 1998 because that orthodoxy still prevails and because I agree with Tesla that into a cocked hat is where this... more >>

More than 35 years ago, I undertook the production of these phenomena (of lightning) and, in 1899 I actually succeeded, using a generator of 2,000 horsepower, in obtaining discharges of 18,000,000 volts carrying currents of 1,200 amperes, which were of such power as to be audible at a distance of 13 miles. I also learned how to produce such lightnings as occur in Nature, and mastered all the technical difficulties in this connection. But I found that even in the small and comparatively negligible trigger work called for the employment of thousands of horsepower; and this is the great obstacle now in the way of this supreme accomplishment.
