  I've been interested in the research by Don Smith for a long time. 
Don passed away about 14 years ago, but his contributions live on.
Below are some of his notes, reprinted (in the book identified in the URL).
   
    I invited comments on the energy research by Don Smith - and any recent progress in replicating his devices.

Thanks!

   Hi Prof.
   From the looks of the diagram, that was not a self running device. So, what is the point, if it needs a battery to operate?
   What am I missing?

Nick, The battery is the feed back circuit, once started it runs till it's stopped.

Any way what stopping you from modifiying it your self to self run and auto stop?

Hi PhysicsProf,

This is a how-to video by Don Smith. It’s a slight variation of the circuit in the hand notes page you posted.
I’ve recently began looking into this as a possible part to my current experiment.

If someone has the mentioned American Radio Relay League chart and will post it here it would be a big help to anyone wanting to build.

Regards
Cadman

Hi Cadman,

I attach the chart the ARRL has included for decades in their Handbooks. 
  (Let me note though that I do not think someone attempting to replicate DS's setup in question was retarted or failed by the lack of such charts, to put it mildly.)

I think Cadman refers to another reactance chart shown below.

This chart can be found in the "Donald Lee Smith - Practical Guide to Free Energy Devices"  PDF page 92 here:
https://www.google.nl/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwispo-zupP1AhVEgf0HHbr5CFoQFnoECAUQAQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.free-energy-info.tuks.nl%2FSmith.pdf&usg=AOvVaw0OonzQq1BSSWiOf7I-8-Ba

But the reason Don Smith mentioned this chart (page 89 bottom / 90 top) is to find the parallel resistor value for "pulling down" the resonance frequency of an LC circuit which of course does not work that way.

Okay Itsu, indeed the chart you show can help to arrive at a missing reactance.  I did not remember this chart was also referred to by DS.

Thanks,

Thanks, Itsu.   Any other documents from Don Smith?  - would be appreciated.

Steve,

there was a lot available, but much seems to be gone now.

I guess the best thing is to look in one of the forums about Don Smith like here:
http://www.energeticforum.com/forum/energetic-forum-discussion/renewable-energy/5012-donald-smith-devices-too-good-to-be-true

Some links in there still work, others (most) not.

Why those links are gone i don't know, but there are many doubts about Don, so beware before putting to much energy  ;) into it, see this f.i.:

Nick i have seen this it needs the battery to stablise it self it's feed back loop that alows it to self run.

any other questions I can help you with  O0
