Default Schumann Resonances

Connected a 12" dia coil of about 100 turns of #12 copper wire to a 5000/4 Ohm output transformer backwards into an Analog Discovery USB device. Got a spectrum that looks close to the Schumann resonances (contaminated with some mains noise).

So they do, although where is the 50Hz coming from?

The European aether? I read there are still railroads on 16.666 Hz in Europe. This was just quick experiment, more to come.

But this is a real measurement and real data, I actually thought this first try would show nothing but noise.

Not a bad ADC on that Discovery!

And how much does that contraption weigh? 6-7 lbs before the transformer, roughly? Also, how quiet is your environment?

(This is all very, *very* cool. Might need to replicate with my niece and/or HS demos at some point)

I just came home tonight inspired by the LIGO success and cobbled this together with no expectations. Just fun no more no less.

Interesting, I keep telling myself to try this experiment and somehow never have time to get around to it.

Sweet! That's awesome. I would have expected needing a lot more sensitivity.

I see no Michelson-Morley here though.

Thanks for that Scott. I was looking for something similar when I probed the ground in my yard with an ADC. What I found was mains AC noise, 60Hz and scads of harmonics.

FWIW, I used to sell very good power supplies for Schumann resonators. Yeah, I know, I know. But they sold like hotcakes. We tried the resonators in the office listening room. No one could tell any difference. But we were far out in the country, a long way from mains transmission lines and other EM pollution. All the resonator power supplies went to very urban environments. Never figured out if that was significant or not.
