- Find the date in the figure-8 analemma on the top of the
solar irradiation cage.
- Follow either right (AM) or left (PM) to reach the
current time. Mark the intersection of the date and time
on the solar irradiation cage using a piece of transparent
tape and a marker pen.
- Turn the device until the marked spot casts a shadow on
the center of the circular direction plate. This orients
the solar irradiation cage to the North Star.
- While keeping the direction plate level, take three
steps forward, two steps backward, then watch the compass.
If buried treasure is nearby, the compass deflects toward
If there is no compass deflection, repeat until you have
advanced across the land to be surveyed. Repeat the survey
in parallel lines 1 meter apart.
- If you see a compass deflection, repeat Step 4
approaching in different directions surrounding the area
of interest. Triangulate to find the likely treasure
location, then start digging.
Currently the device is available only to members of the HT
Physics Society. However, the Society has agreed to release
this device to the general public, effective April 2021.
How the HelioTrak Dowser Works
The HelioTrak treasure dowser captures the power of the solar
wind, the streams of charged particles emitted by the Sun that
cause the northern auroras. You get the strongest results
during periods of high sunspot activity. Advancing through the
geomagnetic field generates a perpendicular electric field,
which gathers and directs the charged particles.
The size of the compass deflection indicates the value of the
treasure. If the compass swings wildly, you could become very
The device complements the human aura, intensifying your
natural powers using cosmic rays from deep outer space. It
works only with the human aura. This means your dog cannot use
this device successfully, even if he is very smart. The same
is true for your horse. You can, however, ride your horse
while using the device. Have him trot three clops forward, two

How To Get the HelioTrak
You can make the HelioTrak Treasure Dowser for free if you
have a 3-D printer. Download the parts files in STL format
from the HelioTrak Download
page. Follow the instructions to print and
assemble the parts to make a working device. Alternatively,
you can purchase a parts kit or a completed device.
You must wait until at least April 1, 2021 before you use the
device. Otherwise, you will be cursed and your device will
only find worthless junk like tin cans and poop bags.
If the magnetic compass fails
to deflect, it means there is no buried treasure on your
property, guaranteed. If you later find buried treasure by
some other means, return the defective device for a refund. If
the device says there is buried treasure but you can't find
it, you failed to dig deep enough; dig yourself into a deeper
You might be tempted to bury some treasure and see if the
device can detect it. However, it only finds hidden
treasure. The device cannot be fooled -- unlike you!
