This page is dedicated to those with the technical background to understand a more indepth description of the devices electrical operation.

My device is best described as being a diminished carrier, dual side band, pulsed, AM transmitter. Severe overmodulation is utilized to form a pulse envelope. Presently available electronics allows the primary driver ( a CB radio) to operate unmodulated at about 3 watts PEP and then swing to close to 50 watts PEP fully modulated. In spite of currently accepted radio theory, the resulting emitted RF wave is very clean and has mimimal distortion when recieved. This is a technique pioneered by the CB radio community and is called "talk power". That is, the transmitted carrier does not travel any further than before, but anyone with a radio that can recieve the transmission has thier demodulation circuits fully driven.

Certainly the severe overmodulation causes harmonic generation, but this is unimportant for the ISM band is quite wide at 27.125 MHz. A point to remember is that the transmitted wave is not going to be recieved by another radio. It is going to be recieved by a biologic entity. As such the wave must be biologically acceptable. That is why overmodulation is used and not pulsed CW. If one looks at the wave emitted from the plasma tube on an oscilloscope or spectrum analyzer, there is a significant difference between diminished carrier overmodulated AM, and pulsed CW. It has been found that the more audio that is modulated onto the carrier, the better the effects of the device. Another factor is the ratio of the unmodulated carrier to the modulated carrier. The larger the ratio, the better the effects of the device. The intent is to create mechanical resonance by audio sympathetic vibration. The louder or more intense the demodulated audio the harder biologics will be shaken.

Another factor of consideration is the linear amplifier. Once again the ratio between the modulated and unmodulated states is important. Present amplifiers that I am working with idle unmodulated at about 70 watts and then swing to about 300 watts when fully modulated. One can have a 300 watt amplifier, but if the unmodulated state is say 200 watts, the effects of the device will not be as good as having the 70 watt unmodulated state.

More RF harmonics are definitely a plus with the device. There are many commercial amplifiers available for the device. These work well and have produced many positive results. The best amplifiers are hand constructed, and are purely for transmission purposes. Deletion of any R/T relays, adjustable power levels, and harmonic supressors make the best linears. The idea is to amplify as much of what goes into the amp as possible. Square waves are used to modulate the system and the harmonics within the sidebands need to be expressed and amplified.

It is presently believed that Dr. Rife used pulsed CW in his devices. No audio modulation was used, but some sort of pulse circuitry was employed to produce the pulse necessary to initiate resonance effects. There are some sites listed on my links page where modifications are shown for the CB radio to produce a pulsed CW unit. The advantage is that this bypasses the audio frequency limitations in the CB radio. Most CB's can be made to modulate audio up to about 35,000 Hz. But a pulsed CW unit will easily go up to 1 Mhz. Does pulsed CW work? To some degree yes, but pulsed, diminished carrier, dual side band, AM produces superior physiologic effects.

A rather large cache of correspondence to Dr. Rife has recently been released. Review of some of the 800 plus letters reveals that different types of emission came from the plasma tube in Dr. Rife's instrument. These rays were called the Photographic Ray and the Effective Ray. Dr. Milbank Johnson stated that a thin piece of aluminum would completely block the effect on micro organims of the original Rife device. We now know what the photographic wave was. Dr. Rife was apparently using a rather high voltage carrier wave, somewhere in the neighborhood of 6000 to 8000 volts. Such high voltage we realize today will produce what are known as soft X-rays. Such X-rays do not have much penetration effect, but will darken film, and can be blocked by a thin piece of aluminum. Modern X-ray units actually use a 1mm thick piece of aluminum as a shield to absorb these soft X-Rays. This decreases the total radiation exposure to the patient while increasing the clarity, or resolution, of the final picture made by the X-Rays.

My device has been tested for X-ray emission. This includes Soft X-rays, as well as hard X-rays of Alpha, Beta, and Gamma energy levels. No X-radiation has been detected. My device will not darken photographic film.

My device is a field device, as such it relies upon the absorbtion of the wave emitted by the plasma tube to produce effects. Absorbtion of the emitted wave means one needs an antenna of some sort. A human body, is a very good antenna for the emitted wave. A piece of glass is not a good antenna. This means that traditional testing methods using petri dishes and test tubes do not correlate well with results observed invivo. Because glass is not a good antenna, petri dish and test tube exposures will show some interesting effects based on resonant stimulation. Growth rates will typically increase over controls.

There may be a use for such stimulation in the growth of cell cultures for repair of body parts. Skin and cartilage grafts come to mind. The field emitted by the plasma tube will have a spatial orientation. It may be possible to cause growth along the lines of force from the field causing cellular alignment within the new tissue.

This brief explanation of the device is by no means complete
