If I am not mistaken one of Tesla's designs was to implement a scalar wave
system and use the earth as a capacitor. The energy was to be received by a
tuned circuit. The amount of power received was dependent on the resonating
frequency of that circuit (referring to the Tesla Equivalent Circuit). This
is why I called it a "radio" type circuit. Maybe a better term would be a
"resonating" circuit?

I have been working with the transmission of wireless energy for a while
but am only able to receive enough power to light up a very small bulb at a
distance of a few feet. Since I am not able to create a charge separation
between the ionosphere and the earth with my 700 watt coil, I am wondering
if anyone has any Ideas that I may try (short of building another
Wardencliff Tower).
