REMOTE ARIZONA, USA - Marcus Kipper has been
demonstrating a technology that purportedly yields up to ten times the power
output over what is put in. After five trips of ten hours each and $14,000
later, Wesley Crosiar of California says he has uncovered the secret to the
device in what appears to be blatant trickery -- hidden wireless microwave
transmission of power.
The device consists of a 12-volt battery that runs a motor, which in turn runs
an alternator, that then, after a rectifier, passes energy through a specially
designed coil that is tucked between the motor and the alternator -- allegedly
to extract the energy from electromagnetic fields being emitting from both -- in
order to then charge an output battery or run a load. Once the system is
operating, the loop can be closed, and ten times the current begins to flow
through the wires. This causes the insulation on the wires to begin
melting, followed by arcing, at which point 100 times the energy flows, even
melting the wires.
Supposedly, this is possible because the device is tapping "ionic
energy" from the surrounding aetheric medium found between the motor and
Not so, according to Crosiar, who has documented reasons to believe the device
is actually powered by local wireless transmission of microwave power. The
power is picked up by the antenna coil that consists basically of several 3-inch
loops of wire, approximately matching the wavelength of the microwave.
Behind the Curtain of Oz
Crosiar said he recently took a look around Kipper's property and discovered a
microwave dish situated about 150 feet from the home, tucked back away in the
trees, trained on the home. He speculates that a microwave oven that he
once saw in an adjoining room could have also been modified to do the trick as
well. Kipper later denied ever having a microwave, but both Crosiar and
his wife saw it on one of their visits.
Crosiar said that when Kipper gives a demonstration in his home (which seems to
be one of the only places the device will work), he says something like,
"Feel the wires starting to get hot?!" It is then, Crosiar
guesses, that Kipper's wife (who is usually in an adjoining room during the
demonstration) flips a switch, activating the microwave dish, which then causes
a transmission of energy to the coils.
This would also explain why, when Kipper holds his clamp-on amp meter in the air
above the device, the meter shows a current of up to two amps. The
diameter of the fluke enclosure and the diameter of the coil antenna are roughly
"One of my friends told me the U.S. military has had this technology for a
long time," said Crosiar, referring to the ability to transmit power via
microwave for up to six miles. "It is highly classified."
Crosiar has replicated the effect using a cheap microwave oven. He placed
the coil inside the oven, threading the coil ends up through the top of the oven
to then connect to the rectifier and battery. The coil configuration picks
up the microwave frequencies and causes a high current to flow in the wire.
When the microwave transmitter is turned on, the current goes from 0.5 amps up
to 7 to 8 amps as the wires act as an antenna for the microwave power.
That much energy causes the insulation on the wires to begin melting in
spots. Then, the next jump to 70 to 80 amps happens when the wires start
arcing, short-circuiting the battery, filling the room with smoke within a
fraction of a second. If the wires are not immediately disconnected from
the battery, they begin to glow red.
Of course, that is not what Kipper says. As far as the observers are
concerned, they are witnessing copious amounts of free energy flowing in from
the aether. Melt down.
Crosiar was witness to this show on numerous occasions, and said it was very
convincing and impressive.
The room where this demonstration takes place is lined with screen from
the waist up. Screen mesh blocks microwave radiation. The motor is
sitting on a small child's table below the level of the screen mesh. As
far as the visitor is concerned, it is just mosquito netting in a sun-room, and
making do with what is lying around. Reasonable enough.
Crosiar points out that when the device is demonstrated "out in the
desert," Kipper's pick-up truck is situated nearby, and probably has a
microwave horn. This is not the kind of horn that honks, but one installed
for the purpose of microwave broadcast. Crosiar also points out that
Kipper gives some kind of excuse as to the depletion of the battery in his
truck. He quotes Kipper as claiming that it is related to the phenomenon
of batteries becoming depleted when UFOs are nearby, as some people have
The Elusive Grail
Kipper has been at this since at least 1990. He no longer sports the beard
and headband, but has a clean-cut look.
Crosiar came along around three years ago, and put up his life savings to get
He attempted to replicate the technology, but it would only work when Kipper was
around. He was so baffled that he even wondered if maybe Kipper, who is a
Wiccan, wasn't playing some kind of occult trick on his mind to make him see an
illusion of something happening that was not.
The device itself is very simple. If it were what Kipper claims it to be,
this device should therefore work just about anywhere, but it does not.
About a year ago, Crosiar had thought maybe the device was picking up energy
from high power lines, serving as a wireless transformer. He theorized
that Kipper's property must be near an underground high-power transmission
line. Taking his replicated device to several locations underneath high
power lines, and determining that no energy was being picked up through the
coil, he disproved that notion.
One of the final tell-tale signs and last straws was when Crosiar showed up at
Kipper's place and requested that he run it there in the driveway, not in his
home. The device had run in Kipper's porch before, but Crosiar could not
get it to work when he returned home. Kipper fiddled with it for about an
hour but could not get it to run. It was on this same trip that Crosiar
discovered the microwave dish out behind Kipper's home.
Crosiar gives the exact ingredients of the simple system, so that anyone can
build it and prove to themselves that it is just microwave energy that is being
picked up -- not "ionic energy."
- Two 12-volt batteries, one for input, and one to receive the output charge
until the loop is closed.
- One DC motor (the kind used in a tread mill work best).
- One belt.
- One alternator that uses neodymium magnets on its rotor, with nickel.
This is probably not crucial, but it is what Kipper prescribes -- most likely
- Full wave bridge rectifier.
- Six foot length of 12 gauge wire.
- Microwave oven.
The DC motor is run by one of the 12-volt batteries. The motor is hooked
to the alternator by a belt. The alternator is connected to the full-wave
bridge rectifier. The rectifier is connected to the output battery via a
specially wound coil.
The crucial, but not highly finicky part is winding the coil. Take two
6-foot lengths of 12-gauge wire (preferably stranded, not solid copper).
With the two lengths of wire parallel to each other, tie half a square knot in
the wires, as if they were one wire, leaving about a 3-inch diameter loop. Then
tie another similar knot, but with the overlap going the other way so that the
overlap of wires alternates, from one knot to the next, down the 6-foot length
of wire. You then twist these loops so they wind back on themselves into a
thicker overlapped toroid loop of the same diameter. That is the coil.
One wire connects the positive of the bridge to the
positive of the battery, and the other wire connects the negatives.
If you don't want to see the battery short-circuit effect, then you just do one
length of wire like this, and run it between the positive lead of the bridge and
the positive lead of the battery, and run a regular wire between the negative
A single strand, used by Kipper, which has been
Crosiar says that Kipper is not the first person to have pulled this
hoax. He believes that the legendary Les Hendershot was doing the same
thing. His device had a similar arrangement. Crosiar says, "You
always see magnetron magnets in the photos, which suggests he had access to
Crosiar points out that Hendershot worked in Brimerton Shipyard, a military
operation in Washington in the late 20's, early 30's. They had microwave
technology there, so it is not inconceivable the Hendershot could have lifted
some stuff enabling him to pull off the hoax.

Having helped Kipper build one of these devices, I disagree with Wes's
analysis. For starters, it worked in my shop for three weeks, whether Kipper was
there or not. Second, having been exposed to an intense magnetic field in the
past, I am somewhat sensitive to energy fields. For instance, if I am in the
same room as a Tesla coil, my teeth are immediately set on edge and the back of
my throat tightens up. I get the same reaction if I stand near an operating
microwave oven (and they are shielded). Certainly, if I was standing in front of
a giant transmitter I would have felt it.
Furthermore, look at the amount of energy required to achieve this. Energy
falls off at the rate of the distance squared. I need to check further into
this, but if memory serves me right under ideal conditions only 1/4 of the power
transmitted would be received. Therefore for the ~1KW receiver, you would be
looking at a 5KW transmitter. Given that Kipper is totally off the grid, he
would be looking at a mobile generator and heavy duty transmitting equipment to
boot. For Kipper to be able to expend that kind of power without noticeably
affecting his household (i.e. dimming of lights, etc) would be impressive on its
own merits. (Last time I was there, he had to fire up his gas powered generator
to wash the clothes... in the daytime!)
It would not surprise me a bit to find out that Kipper has a microwave dish.
The most likely use for it is for satellite TV reception. I have a microwave
dish for this purpose as well. In Arizona, there are areas where there is no
cable service, or reception, and the only service available is satellite. Kipper
lives in one of these "dead" areas.
It is good to know that the effect can be replicated IN a microwave. But
there the energy is focused. Therefore it doesn't even qualify for a good
tabletop demonstration as there is no simulated atmospheric attenuation, and
dispersion over a distance involved. It is highly unlikely that Kipper would
turn his house into a giant microwave oven and expose himself, his wife, and
children to massive doses of non-ionizing radiation. After all, Kipper is a
naturopath and would realize the danger of that type of energy.
Sorry, Wes is barking up the wrong tree. Justifying his expenditure by
claiming microwave fraud for not only Kipper, but Hendershot as well, is a big
stretch which distorts electrical history. Microwave technology research was
kicked off at Columbia University in 1942, and microwave tube r&d didn't
gain any legs until 1944. Therefore, in the 1920s and '30s, Hendershot would
have had to invent a microwave transmitter as well as a receiver. Wes's
explanation also does not account for the fact that at least one other person
independent of Kipper (and 1000 miles away in Missouri) replicated the Kipper
Motor and observed the same effects I did. Unfortunately, the effect in Missouri
lasted over a weekend and then quit.
I am sure the answer to this mystery lies elsewhere. Wes should have hung on
to his money and not have financed the agent provocateur (and later Kipper
directly). Once the promise of millions were dangled in front of Kipper, things
began to get very strange with Kipper, culminating with the reneging of his
promise of providing technical support with the plans. (Kipper later admitted to
me that he was not to work with me or the other inventors who bought plans on
this device as a condition of his commitment to the AP.) I am sure, that had
this not been done, we may have gotten to the bottom of this by now.
One of the purposes of publishing the plans
in "ExtraOrdinary Technology" was to encourage members to replicate
this device. A more detailed analysis of what I believe was occurring in the
device is contained in my book, "Tesla's cars and Other Free Energy
Devices". One of the thing that struck me about the Kipper circuit is that
it is surprisingly similar to one the basic Tesla patents cited as a free energy
device by other researchers. There is a lot more to this than meets the eye, and
I believe it is related to Tesla's 1931 Pierce Arrow experiment. It is probably
drawing power from the same source.

Wes Crosiar points out that with a "resonant-tuned circuit you can get near
100% transfer efficiency one from point to another." In other words,
it is conceivable that Kipper could have a remote microwave dish trained on his
motor and not necessarily endanger his health in the process, as most of the
energy would be directed to the motor antenna. A military friend of his
said they could point parabolic dishes at a sea gull half a mile away and drop
the sea gull.
Crosiar also said that Kipper refuted Elswick's claims to three weeks of a
running device. He said that Elswick never had it going for more than
about an hour at a time during that period.
Regarding Hendershot, Kipper said that a history of Hendershot shows that he was
working on being able to remotely power a toy airplane, indicating the level of
technological knowledge at his disposal.
It should also be pointed out that even though civilian use of microwave power
came along later, that military knowledge of the technology could have existed
prior in some form. Military knowledge often ahead of civilian
applications. He said that most all the photos of Hendershot and his
device show the E-shaped magnets which are immediately recognized as magnetrons
from microwave technology.
For what it is worth, Crosiar noted that most of the adjoining properties to
Kipper's remote lot have burnt down buildings.
