    My Magic Antenna
    by Clifford Novey
    4/4 120bpm

    What would you say if I told you
    that I could work magic with my mind?
    That I could make a small device,
    that could contact mars and cook your rice,
    pick up things no others can,
    that this is all in my master plan?
    "do it, do it, do it!"

    I'm still working on other verses and getting it all copy-written.
    Stay tuned.

    One word;


    Wikipedia it, and be amazed.

    Show me the physics!
    Until then, I call BULLSHIT on his "paradigm shift" in classical physics.

    As for "patent pending". The US patent office is no better at grading BS than they are at grading meat.

    ... missing one minor detail.... no metamaterials involved in this antenna!
    Hit and run comments. Read some of what has been posted first and maybe your post will have some relevance.
    1- physics of what? the metamaterials comment was a joke.
    2- Read the patent. Has interesting info relevant to this thread. The patent has a basic antenna design in contrast to the vague and fantastic claims made by the author. Gives some actual substance for discussion.

    I read the patent. I listened to both videos. I read all the posts. I got the joke. My comment stands.

    Meh- too bad you could not have added something constructive even after you invested all that time.

    I heard the next version will harness cold fusion - stick a hotdog on the end of the antenna and work P5 while roasting a Ball Park Frank!

    I'm not saying his antenna has metamaterials in it. Just making the point that there are already antennas on the market that are 1/20th the size of the typical half wave length required to get the same performance and gain.

    I will be happy to discuss any radio physics aspect of the antenna. However, having "invested all that time", I was unable to find any to discuss.
    I ask: What is the new "paradigm"? What point of view, coming from classical physics, have I missed? What makes this antenna's interaction with a radiating EM field different? I suppose calling BULLSHIT was not the most eloquent way of expressing these questions. However, finding my investment a near total loss, I let my emotional side get the best of me.

    I'm calling you out. What is there to discuss?
