Discovered by David Buckingham
Year of discovery 1996

Fx119 is an elementary conduit, one of the original sixteen Herschel conduits, discovered by Dave Buckingham in September 1996. After 119 ticks, it produces an inverted Herschel at (20, 14) relative to the input. Its recovery time is 231 ticks; this can be reduced somewhat by suppressing the output Herschel's glider, or by adding extra catalysts to make the reaction settle more quickly, as shown below. Appending a dependent conduit to a standard Fx119 can reduce the repeat time to 160 ticks.

The standard Fx119 conduit produces 3 gliders: the FNG going southwest, the "second natural glider" going northwest, and then another southwest-traveling glider.

In the pattern shown in the infobox, a ghost Herschel marks the output location.

Fast version of Fx119. Repeat time is only 60 ticks,
but this variant of the conduit must be followed
by a dependent conduit or some other
glider-suppressing mechanism.

Standard "Fx119G" suppressed variant,
with a repeat time of 196 ticks. No following
dependent conduit is needed here. Instead,
an extra block is created that absorbs the
following Herschel's first natural glider.
