There are several problems with "scalar waves." First, they aren't part of any theory recognized by contemporary scientists, and so scientists dismiss the claims as crackpotism. Only hobbyists and "fringies" dare perform "scalar" experiments, or dare to tell anyone about them.
Second, the people writing the articles aren't scientists,
and they have not developed the habit of full, detailed
reporting. In fact the authors are somewhat secretive.
If somebody tries to follow the articles and build a
device, and if it doesn't work, it could be because
they did something slightly wrong without knowing it.
The articles might not give enough info. A detailed
scientific report doesn't just give a schematic, it
also gives detailed photos, tells EXACTLY what the
experimenter did moment by moment, gives the makes and
models of all test equipment used, voltages of all power
supplies, room temperature and humidity, phone numbers and
email addresses of everyone involved, and anything else
which could possibly help others to reproduce the experiment.
Third, nobody is excitedly reporting success. This could
mean that nobody is attempting to build the devices, and
the plans are languishing on the internet unused. But
it could also mean that many hobbyists do try duplicating
the devices, and when they don't work, they never tell
anyone. But being a scientist means reporting failures!
I've not tried building these devices myself. If you
want to mess with them, please do. But PLEASE PLEASE
PLEASE, if you perform any experiments, tell other
hobbyists about them even if you are unsuccessful.
Do the opposite of the authors of those articles:
give lots of detail, don't be a bit secretive, and
supply your contact info so others can call up and
discuss your efforts.
