EMP notworking,i followed every steps on tutorial. Can you find where goes wrong? Answered
Tutorial i follow: http://teslaundmehr.de/2015/12/05/emp-jammer/
single 18650 battery
3v to 40v boost convert
47 and 220 pf capacitor
i can hear some weak sparkish noise from top of the coil, and transistor goes hot too. but just nothing happens to lightbulb and calculator
April 18 update: i connected the losing end( pic10). but still nothing, any other thought ?
new diagram at pic 8
i'll keep updating as i soldering componets using no wire
April 22 update: it worked, with a other small test coil i made, (pic 1,3,4)i swaped several transistors made sure only problem was the coil. where goes wrong with the bigger coil (pic2,5) ?
also, i've switched winding lead on big coil, still goes nothing (small one works with either way). i was guessing perhaps i've made too many turns on L1 somehow changed behavior of coil
(another interesting phenonenal i've noticed is as you stick an iron cord inside coil, EMP field despairing rapidly to 0. which is bit different then i learned in high school)
