Royal Rife Beam Ray machine replica is built strictly following the technical specification of the historical device made by Dr Royal Raymond Rife and his engineer Philip Hoyland. The resulting output is identical to the one produced by the original Rife Beam Ray machine. Unlike most contemporary devices it uses sidebanding method to generate a set of harmonics capable of reaching the targetted MOR (Mortal Oscillatory Rate) and its harmonic frequencies with minimal filtering of the output signal.
Building the Rife Beam Ray device
Historical Rife Beam Ray devices were designed with the technology and electronic components readily available in the 1930s and 1940s. In a modern environment, it means a higher cost of production and maintenance, and less versatility for the user. We addressed those issues by upgrading and adding several things:
- The device now doesn’t contain any internal modulation signal generator. Instead, an input of the internal preamplifier of the modulating signal is provided to be used with the external signal generator. In that way the user has a much broader choice of which signal source to use, ranging from the output of the computer soundcard to advanced function generators. Effectively, any signal source that can provide sinusoidal wave with at least 5V output and frequency range of up to 20 (30) kHz.
- The power supply of the thermionic valve triode heater is stabilised DC voltage source. It provides exact electrical potential (voltage) even in the events when the electrical potential of the electrical mains varies. In that way, the longevity of the triode heating filament is preserved if the unfavourable conditions occur.
- The anode power supply now employs a soft start circuit to reduce stress on the thermionic valve triode and thus increase its longevity. The internal microcontroller controls the start/stop sequence to simplify the use of the device.
- The vacuum tube triode is actively air-cooled to reduce thermal stress during high power operation.
- Carrier wave frequency is now adjustable while historic devices had fixed carrier wave frequency. The fixed carrier frequency was used to hide the true MORs by providing users with the pre-set list of audio range frequencies necessary to produce LSB harmonics, one of which would be the exact MOR. For more versatility, the carrier wave frequency is adjustable, and it covers one of the historical ranges of 3.3 MHz. However, it also provides the possibility of setting the carrier wave frequency to some lower value, usually down to 2.6 MHz. In that way, the user is provided with the possibility of targetting MORs (Mortal Oscillatory Rate) by using lesser number of LSB (Low Side Band) harmonics, i.e. by using a smaller number of “steps”. It means that the harmonic at the targetted MOR shall contain more energy, which most likely translates to better efficacy of the device. It is up to the user to measure the exact carrier wave frequency, which can be set with the external frequency meter, oscilloscope etc.
- The output power can be increased or decreased. It is done by removing the enclosure top lid and turning the shaft of the adjustment rheostat while observing the anode current value on a front panel instrument and grid leak current (any milliampere meter which can be connected to the socket on the back side).
- The plasma antenna we commonly use is the larger version of the Phanotron tube. It comes with the plexiglass holder with holes for mounting on some moveable stand. The polymer caps on the end of the tube makes it easy to replace and also provides a very high level of safety from accidental touch.
- Warranty on all parts is 36 months except on expendable parts, i.e. Phanotron tube – plasma antenna and thermionic valve triode.
