Re: Wireless transmission of power,

"     Tesla was gifted researcher/engineer and was well aware of the
implications of the works of both Hertz and Maxwell and the limitations
latter put on electromagnetic waves. His energy transmission inventions,
patented, did not use electromagnetic radiation for the transmission of
energy, they were designed to transmit by conduction. (read the

  I don't believe that Tesla would have wasted his time trying that
he knew was mathematically impossible, although many of his detractors
claim he tried and failed, while many of his worshippers claim he tried
succeeded, but the results suppressed by conspiracy."

	Unfortunately, "his energy inventions as patented" CANT work because of
many factors he apparently ignored or didn't analyze.  It is a simple
matter to "design" the circuits for his conductive transmission scheme,
and the results of such a design show its fallacy.  It's sure too bad he
isn't around to answer a few questions about why he thought it would
work.  Things he apparently neglected to calculate include:

1. The conductivity of his "conducting layer".  He seems to have thought
it was lossless, apparently as a result of his experiments with
conducting currents through evacuated tubes.  In practice, the
conductivity would be quite low.

2. The resistive losses in both the ground and conducting layer when it
was excited with his "100,000,000" volts.  He overlooked the capacitance
to ground of that layer and the current which would have to flow into it
to maintain anything like that voltage, even at frequencies as low as 10

3. The fact that lightning channels would short out a lot of the energy
IF the layer were as low as he imagined.  (He should have known the
required height better but doesn't seem to have done so.)

Of course, it's remotely possible he did understand these things and
pushed on anyway, but I can't imagine it.

	The scheme wasn't all conductive since he apparently intended the
"receiver" to get energy via capacitive coupling to the "conducting
layer" of the atmosphere.
