This is probably a real dumb one, but what the hey.
Has anyone made a straight wire resonator, or maybe one big single
turn? There must be a half mile of electric fence around someplace.
Of course the opposite would be true if we transmitted wireless power,
a half-wave bridge might look pretty neat in the dark.
I disavow any knowledge of my actions.
