Yes, McKubre's suggested "site" alteration is the most likely reason that so
many LENR experiments, going back decades, seem to be unreliable, even when
identical experiment works well - at other times. Do you by any chance have
a citation for McKubre's observations?

There are two other explanations (beside the site degradation) that are of
particular interest. One is "probability alteration" based on quantum
entanglement and probability fields.

IOW "entanglement" is lost for the entire volume of local space,
periodically, and this negatively affect tunneling and other QM reactions.

The other is ZPE "depletion" in the sense of a spatial alteration of net
amount of surplus vacuum energy. This assumes that although vacuum energy is
always high, only a proportion of that which is surplus, or usable.

In fact a third explanation comes to mind - as I am typing this, which is
based on a new factor that only applies to Ni-H (average hydrogen non-quark
mass depletion).

More later,

share on that subject, for a later post.

McKubre has stated that quiescence also occurs in Pd/D reactions which tends
to lead one to the conclusion that the reaction sites are somehow altered.
It sounds like the knife edge is dulled and needs to be re-sharpened. I
suspect that in the Ni/H reaction the surface area
is reduced by a melting and "smoothing" action in the nanopowder.
