It was NOT meant as a personal comment... If you didn't invent it, then you 
don't have anything to concern yourself about...
>From the Patent and design, my conclusion is that it's as phony as the EHF 
antenna... Serious charge or not, the so-called invention is BOGUS... in 
that there are no scientific facts to prove that the concept works... I 
seriously doubt that it does...

Cheers, Larry
