Hello BOOMers, there are debates on that my circuit which has capacitor parallel to high voltage source is worse than the other type I also showed at 0:02 which has spark gap parallel to the high voltage source, because DiodesGoneWild mentions it here: https://youtu.be/wSp1IzmRUk8?t=772 While the purpose of this video was not to make a proper commercial transmitter, because FOR GOD'S SAKE, WHO BOTHERS MAKING A COMMERCIAL SPARK-GAP TRANSMITTER NOWADAYS... both circuits lack many components that could make them better, both would work fine with proper components and both have pros and cons. Like in my circuit high voltage resonance frequency is right across the transformer and although mostly filtered, could stress the transformer to some extent, while if the spark gap is across transformer, it could short the high voltage for extended period of time overheating the transformer. In either case having a larger series inductor to the output of the transformer could protect it better. But WHO CARES?! Both circuits work for demonstration purposes, and need improvement for commercial use. So don't go selling this junk to make money!!

Built one 60 years ago. I remember my folks having a coffee klatch and some of the neighbors mentioned their tv’s acting strange every evening for the past week. I was very very quiet, but i swear i saw my mom giving me the eye. Threw out the thing and the 1926 Popular Mechanics magazine that showed me how. Obviously it didn’t kill me, but i made up for it several times in my life...

Hello, first of all, thank you for your videos which often make me smile. I believe I have a subject in the continuity of the video under which I post: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coherer. Easy to implement for a video, even if the risk of getting electrified is low, I think this would be a good subject for you. there is also this small series of videos which are nice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5ZflIll1yc

There is no diode in the ac secondary of the input so how will the capacitor charge ? Or to put it more specifically how will it hold the charge.

The Dane Valdemar Poulsen did make an arc transmitter in the year 1902 together with the ingenier Peder Oluf Pedersen. So no it's not the first ever eventet... Sorry Mehdi. https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valdemar_Poulsen#Buegeneratoren

Wireless communication developed all over the world around the same time, so there really isn't just one person or group that can be credited for the technology. Rowland developed his spark-gap transmitter in 1889, but Poulsen and Pedersen were among the first to design a transmitter that output a continuous waveform rather than pulses.

When I was a child I had a Red Radicon remote control Bus that transmitted a signal to control the Bus with a Spark-Gap Transmitter. Sometimes when the bus was close to the refrigerator, the arc of the compressor Contactor engaging would make the bus start or stop or turn. Here is a demo of one of these buses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4C91T7CxjE
