26 mile Wireless Power Transmission Account

Article List

From Feed Line No. 3

POSSIBLE ORIGIN OF 26 MILE WIRELESS POWER TRANSMISSION ACCOUNT

On page 193 of Prodigal Genius, J. J. O'Neill relates a story of Tesla testing his wireless power-transmission system by illuminating two hundred incandescent lamps at a distance of 26 miles, "with electrical energy extracted from the earth." While it would seem that such a feat is possible, no documentation from Tesla's own records has been published confirming that such a demonstration actually took place. It is interesting to note the 1909 American Encyclopedia cites the first commercial transmission of AC on November 17, 1896 was from Niagara Falls to Buffalo, N.Y., a distance of 26 miles. Could this have been the historical event after which the questionable 26 mile Colorado Springs figure was derived?
