I took about my fifth trip through all of the material posted and I still cannot find the actual test results alluded to in the thread.
The photo of the Field Intensity Meter (FIM) opens the senses to expect actual field testing, but someone forgot to publish field test results.
The suggestion that a top hat on an Isotron can or might cause tuning problems with AMT5000 is vague….
Was this actually done in a test that wasn’t photographed or otherwise documented?
Or, is it only an opinion of possible results, not actually tried?
I have caused much annoyance by trying to reassemble the science being claimed here, but it’s an interesting subject and I’m trying my best to verify whatever it is that would summarize these tests.
That ground wire, plugged into the 3rd hole of a homemade AC extension box raises an unanswered question…..
We know from experience that many AC extensions have a ground pin broken at some point to allow use in a 2-prong wall plug, and older AC systems sometimes are not grounded through the third wire.
The above report would be more solid if the ground path were described per the inspection of the tester.
I am not questioning anyone’s honesty. I assume everyone is honest. However, the scientific method requires detailed documentation, not simple on-the-fly claims.
