Re: Teslas wireless power

Hello to Richard Hull and all others:

I have been following your discussions and waiting around to see what 
would evolve. There seems to be a strong dividing line on the
subject of power transmission and most would rather steer clear of
the subject.

I too have been researching the Tesla theories for a number of years
and continue experimenting with various Tesla coils.

I have been conducting tests using the earth only, as the propagation
medium at a very low power and have discovered that the inverse square
law is not valid. It appears as if the received signal is linear. This
was a surprise and we have been trying our best to determine if the
tests were in error.

I would be glad to send copies of the transient and spectrum analysis
recorded concerning the linear attenuation and your comments would be
greatly appreciated.

Also I too would be interested about the Corums work and wonder if it would
be possible to further my education on the subject. Private email is fine
if this would be more suitable.

Many thanks to a great group
