    This the best you can do? Ridicule someone by inferring that feeding pigeons, as Tesla did, is somehow a sign of mental deficiency? Weak...

    How many friends do you really have apart from those who are amazed that you are The Father of the Fractal Antenna? IF this is all there is, that makes you some kind of god in their limited mentality.

    As one friend in the military kept telling others when they whipped up some factoid, "Tell me what you know that is original, not what you copy from others." THIS is the mark of true wisdom, not merely the interpretation and propagation of the opinions of others.

    If it gives you pleasure in accomplishment.

    This tact here is not getting you anywhere, IMO, except Tesla fan-boy/poster child status.

    Bob, I have TOO MANY friends. I suffer the guilt of not being able to put the time into those relationships to keep them where they deserve to be. That is what happens when you are an inventor and your stuff takes off -- and at 63 you don't have the stamina you had at 30. As they say, be careful what you wish for.

    Happy now? I gave you a window into my private life. Consider it now shut.

    Tesla demonstrated remote control of a boat (that was also submersible) and whether he called it Air Conduction, Ether, or Electromagnetic Induction does not matter. He was using a concept that was accepted. In hindsight, in a narrow-minded way, this is enough to negate what Tesla did?

    Someone said he wrote his thesis on Tesla in this thread. Thought it was you since you idolize Tesla so much. Whoa! That's Marconi, right? :p

    No. I NEVER said I wrote a THESIS ON TESLA.

    But this is compelling evidence that you don't get facts straight.

    I just TOLD YOU:


    With IoT and M2M that is an extremely contemporary field.


    But not ' father of remote control, by radio'.

    Well Chip, have a ball.

    I have more important things to do. And that's a window into my personal life.

    As do I. Apology? Methinks thou dost protesteth too much. And use many capitals. I think you should apologize to my ears with all that shouting. You shouldn't hold your breath Chip. I sure won't.;)

    Minor problem...

    What Tesla demonstrated is not "radio" as we know it today.

    We could argue that striking a tuning fork transmits a series of resonant waves and somehow calling this development an event which lead to , "radio as we know it today"

    ...but it isn't.

    Do you understand that you call me an ANARCHIST?

    I have never ever ever advocated for a stateless society. No comment I have ever made--especially here --can or should be interpreted as such advocation.

    How do you justify that behavior? And in PUBLIC!

    Maybe TESLA took those tuning forks, INVENTED the FENDER RHODES, and in doing so....INVENTED FREQUENCY HOPPING!
