A transmission line is like a river; energy propagates only along the
wires. Pour some water into it and it will appear down stream, unless
someone diverts it. The earth's surface and/or the ionosphere are like
the ocean. Pour some water into it and it is spread over the entire
surface. No way of getting at a particular chunk of it.
Forget the conceptions of what Tesla was trying to do. Build a system
which will do what he was trying and show it to the world!
