Why Is The AL-6D From DiodeBell The Newest Fraudulent Detector?

The people at DiodeBell are smart!  If you are going to make a fake detector for drugs or explosives, why limit your claims to a few hundred meters?  Why limit yourself to just a few explosives or drugs?

According to the video below, the following countries have been tricked into wasting valuable resources and risking the lives and human rights of their citizens by using the AL-6D.

Serbia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Greece, China, India, Ethiopia, Syria.

Since India and China are included, about 40 percent of the world's population is at risk of being falsely accused of having explosives, drugs, or any other contraband based on the worthless "evidence" of a dowsing rod.

The AL-6D is a freely swinging antenna that points to where the desired substance is located, and has some fancy sounding explanation of how it works using scientific words that have a certain "truthiness" sound to them.  The claims are not true, but they SOUND true!    Only 3 years ago we published this post linking to the US Department of Justice's  warning about these bogus explosive detectors.  And that report was from 1999!  Sadly, those predictions of the government, warning of more scams like the Quadro Tracker came true.  There are getting to be too many to count - Sniffex, ADE650, ADE 651, GT200, Alpha 6, HEDD1, H3 Tec, and now the AL-6D!!

Here are the modest claims by DiodeBell about how the AL-6D can find anything!!

AL-6D detects and localizes explosives in long distances. The AL-6D device accurately detects mines, weapons, RPG’S, stinger missiles, explosive devices, mortar shells, nuclear projectiles, projectiles, antitank weapons, even gunpowder and many other explosives. The device detects explosives in distances ranging from cm to several km, depending on the quantity of explosives, in a sector of 360 degrees and in depths more than 8 meters under soil, water or in the sea. AL-6D detects explosives in open terrain, behind walls, barriers, buildings, hills, inside vehicles and metal containers, etc. Cosmetics, glycerine products, salts, metals and “dirty” battle environment do not influence the accuracy of explosive material detection. Electromagnetic transmission and radiation does not interfere and does not affect the operation and accuracy of the AL-6D device.

AL-6D is using a unique DiodeBell material structure localization technology and method. This technology is based on the magnetic attraction created by particular material structures when energized by low power electromagnetic waves, emitted by the AL-6D antennas. Other explosive detection systems although they promise to detect in long ranges are not accurate even in short distances. The systems that use high power ‘x’ and ‘γ‘ radiation, work only in very short distances, a few meters, and are actually “taking a picture” of the inside of a container or a luggage. Diodebell’s advanced AL-6D technology is the only system that accurately detects explosives in long distances.

The applications of AL-6D are limitless, including:
• Continuous surveillance and monitoring of confined areas of interest, such as passages, military camps, buildings, ports, airports, railway stations, hotels, bus stations, strategic targets, factories, bridges, weapon systems locations, etc.
• Scanning areas, terrains and territories of interest, unknown or invading territories, buildings, etc.
• VIP protection
• vehicles and moving objects, including transport vehicles, airplanes, ships, cars, trains, containers, personal luggage

According to DiodeBell:  " AL – 6D appliance is self-contained energy package and does not require external electrical or other kind of power."  Does that sound familiar??

Yes, it has 9-volt batteries to power the LCD screen, but what powers the turning of the antenna to point to the explosives or nuclear warhead?  The answer is gravity!  There is no motor turning the antenna, it just points in the direction in which you slightly tilted your hand, even if the movement was so slight that you did not realize you made it.   That is why the AL-6D is hand-held.  If you put it on a stand or tripod and let cars drive by trying to find the one with a bomb in it, it would not move at all for the biggest truck bomb or nuclear missile, unless it was blown around by the wind or shaken by an earthquake.

I know Greece is busy with the economic crisis, but USA? Are you there?  FBI? Federal Trade Commission?  Does Anyone care about this fraud being sold in the United States of America?   The FBI shut down Quadro Tracker 15 years ago for this same basic scam product.

For more entertaining reading, or if you are an FBI agent seeking evidence for fraud, you can download a copy of the AL-6D detector brochure here in case the company is smart enough to take down the false claims from their web site.


Our friend AT from Lonjho also pointed out this product to us, and noted the similarity to another product:

That review of a very similar looking device used for treasure hunting was quite insightful in their final conclusion:

But the real story of this device lies in the circuitry, or the lack thereof. Both the main unit, and the accessories, are stuffed full of do-nothing garbage, and a great deal of effort was made in preventing anyone from determining what the Electroscope is all about. Once dissected, it should be obvious to anyone, even those without a technical background, what the Electroscope really is: an ordinary dowsing rod, with a voltage applied to the antennae. The accessories are entirely bogus, and serve no useful purpose. The four items described here (Model 20, Phaser, and two modules) have a total price tag of $1283, but there is only about $10 worth of "technology" in all of it.
I think a dissection  of the AL-6D would show the exact same results: do nothing electronic garbage stuffed inside a box which is really an ordinary dowsing rod.  If you really think dowsing for explosives works, save yourself the money and use a wire coat hanger bent into the shape of an L and make it yourself for free.  You will have exactly the same level of accuracy as any of the devices like AL-6D, HEDD1, Sniffex, Quadro Tracker, Alpha 6, PSD, GT200, H3 Tec, or any of the other past, present, or inevitable future devices.

Dear sirs,

DiodeBell Corporation informed the existence of articles at your blog which refer to DiodeBell corporation and its product AL6D. For the clarification of the things, DiodeBell would like to post the following and the readers can make their conclusions.

DiodeBell Corporation is an electronics company, strong in research, based in Greece. In USA there was only a sales office. Our job is to research, design, produce and market unique electronic systems. One of our products is AL6D, the Accurate Long Distance Material Detection system.

The AL6D is an electronic device. The AL6D device has electronic boards, with very accurate signal generation and emits electromagnetic signals. It has antenna(s) which are fixed on the device and they move together around a handle which is located at the bottom part of the device. The user moves the device-antenna(s) around and they stop to move when the device points to the direction of the material. The device with the electronics and the batteries is heavy to move by itself, that is why they are moved by the user. The user cannot move the device around, passing the material. The material stops the move of the device and thus it is very clear when detection is achieved. Training is required for the correct operation of the system.

The AL6D detector has a display. The display turns on when the user presses any key on the keypad and then after a few minutes it turns automatically off to save power from the batteries. We used 2 packs of seven AAA batteries each, and the device operates few hours with this power. Most of the power from the batteries is used for powering the transmission of the signals. The display is off most of the time.

The AL6D device has programmed inside the signals of all the different materials that need to be searched. The AL6D device does not need sample of material when searching and does not need any power from the user. The AL6D device transmits different signals depending on the selected material to be searched.

The operation of the AL6D device is not based on the user. The AL6D device works and operates accurately with all the users. The AL6D finds correctly the direction of the material every time.

Don't knock the AL6D till you've tried it yourself. Of course that would require a total retraction of this article and apology from you once you did. Have you got the guts to admit your wrong? I challenge you to try it and then post your findings. I have no affiliation with Diodebell, but I have seen this device in action in Thailand.
