A fascinating account of the electrical and scientific genius of Nicola Tesla was presented to members of the Cedar Creek Amateur Radio Club recently.  This Serbian immigrant was a true, eccentric genius, who invented alternating current (AC) and lit the lights of the 1893 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago with his polyphase system of AC dynamos and transformers.  Tesla is also known for his Colorado Springs, Colorado “one world communications system”, which proved the Earth could be used as a conductor and would be as responsive as a tuning fork to the electrical vibrations of a certain frequency. Sadly, many of Tesla’s notes, experiments, and lab equipment were seized by the federal government after Tesla died in World War II. There are many scientists who claim Tesla was one of the early pioneers in radio, who set the stage for broadcasting and early radar. This must have been quite a presentation.  Tesla was far ahead of his time.  He died in poverty.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
