Hi Ed,

>His statement"In buildings, however, or near large structures, this
increase often amounted to 50 per cent per
foot of elevation, and this alone will show to what extent many of the
scientific experiments recorded in technical liter­ature are erroneous."
simply doesn't fit what we actually see and measure.

It would be an insult to Tesla to assume he didn't know that raising a
copper ball would increase capacity after he spent a month doing just that
at Colorado Springs.  He must be taking the capacitance due to distance into
account and referring to the variation from expected values.  For example,
he probably measured the capacitance horizontally and then vertically and
received a 50% difference between the two.  It would be an interesting
