###  With only 1 KW.... ERP, they are not about to put the local power 
vast outside plant of poles, HV lines and xfmrs..out of business any time soon. 
The same outfit has been applying for these experimental licences for years

<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..........................
