  • Description

    VILLAGERS IN THE SOUTH VIETNAM PROVINCE OF GIA DINH ARE GETTING FREE ELECTRICITY BY FIXING A FRAME OF WIRE AND A FEW ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS ON THEIR ROOFS.

    THE FRAME PICKS UP RADIO WAVES AND TRANSMITS THEM TO NEON TUBES. THE RADIO STATION NEARBY IS 50KW CAPACITY AND THE VILLAGERS ARE ABLE TO LIGHT THREE 30CM TUBES WITHIN A RADIUS OF 6 MILES FROM THE RADIO STATION.

    "ELECTRICITY FROM THE HEAVEN", AS THE VILLAGERS CALL IT, IS NOT OBJECTED TO BY THE GOVERNMENT, AS VILLAGERS HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR ELECTRICITY FOR SOME YEARS AND THE GOVERNMENT HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO SUPPLY IT.

    THE LOCAL MAN WHO MAKES THESE FRAMES CHARGES ABOUT THREE U.S. DOLLARS.
