Re: Wireless Transmission

Original poster: Mddeming@xxxxxxx

Was Tesla proposing non-Hertzian wave transmission or non Hertzian-wave transmission?
i.e. ~Hertzian (wave-transmission) or ~(Hertzian-wave) transmission. The second case is the transmission of power without using EM waves, thereby avoiding the inverse square problems of radiation loss. At least, this seems to be the method put forth in his U.S.Pats. 645,576 and 649,621. where he claims to use "true atmospheric conduction" rather than EM radiation. The problem of a 15-mile high antenna wire is still insurmountable, as all existing materials would self-destruct from their own weight, although a fiber of carbon nanotubes might come close, Add to this the shearing forces and whipping stresses by existing winds up to 80,000 ft. and no, the materials to build such "antennas" which did not exist in Tesla's time, still do not exist. If such a device did exist for global power transmission, it would, of course, disrupt all existing RF communication systems worldwide. :-((( All Tesla was able to demonstrate was that IF such a system could ever be built, there was reason to believe that transmission by conduction rather than radiation through air at a pressure of ~130 mmHg was feasible in principle.
