I agree about the pie.  I have done a bit of reading.  Their experimental station will use a 50kW broadcast xmtr to (they say) generate a Zenneck surface vertical EM wave with little radiation loss into the sky by using a special "probe".  Zenneck waves are real and have been demonstrated in a lab at a much higher frequency.  They fall off as the square root of distance.  They well be doing field strength vs distance measurements in Texas.  The only problem is that it takes an infinitely long straight array of vertical antennas (ie a lot) to generate a pure Zenneck wave.  50 to 1 kW is another issue, not to mention ground loss..........................

##  IMO, this is pie in the sky.   Pure psuedo junk science at its finest.
Tesla  tried sending vast amounts of energy via  wireless,  didnt work out too 
S meters are calibrated in microvolts, not megawatts.

##  well, you could buy shares in the company, let them peak  with all the 
hype, then dump
all of em real quick.    The entire scheme is about 3 steps  below fractal ants.
