Welcome to Wikirota ! Edit
Louis Rota (1886-1951) a pioneer in the development of the radar who devoted his life to the study of energy fields which he named "The Universal Currents". He built intriguing apparatus and developed his own code to reference these currents. Louis Rota was very secretive about his work and published very little. When he died, a great deal, but not all of his knowledge was lost. Here is a resume of what has been found from his notes, some of which is quite far reaching.
Did Rota make a fundamental discovery? Can we reproduce his experiments? Can we crack the Rota's code ? This Wiki aims not only to open a debate for answering objectively to these questions, but to also to collect new clues that could help to decipher the Rota's Code.
The Work of Louis Rota Edit
The Rota's effect Edit
Rota did not use any electronic equipment, only a stop watch and a hight impedance headset connected to a ground or/and aerial antenna network.
What we call the Rota's effect is not the well known background noise, neither the usual clicks produced when connecting / disconnecting the headset to an antenna: it is the fact that under certain condition, the clicks occur when then should not

The Universal Currents Edit
LGV Rota claimed that the atmospherics or statics in radio sets was due to the metals of the radio set and antennae responding to the "Universal Currents". Using a tape recorder and an oscilloscope, Mike Watson was able to compare the effects of the atmospheric electromagnetic signals on several metals. Are these variation nothing but a random phenomena totally explicable with with physical properties of the metal?
The Passive Radar Edit
The detectors built by LGV Rota could be classified as “passive Radar” because they were able to detect object without sending any signal. But Rota is not the only one to have worked on such concept. In 1939, a passive aircraft detector built by two scientists, J.Cecil Maby and T. Bedford Franklin, was tested with some success by the British Government.These two scientists published their work and their experiments are fully documented. Can this throw light on some Rota’s claims? Discover the remarkable research work of Cecil Maby and Bedford Franklin
The debate Edit
A Researcher Misleading or Inspired?
LGV Rota was apparently a respected scientific (Rota and the Death Penalty). The theory of Universal Current is apparently original, but we don't know how LGV Rota managed to build this new concept. LGV Rota did avoid to tell too much, more exactly to tell much useful hints. Nevertheless he received support from both English and French governments and refused in 1940 a German offer. Can he really fool everybody for so many years? We have very few documents related to the military work of Louis Rota.
