No one has done it yet. not even Tesla. He patented several devices that he
said would do it, if they were built and appropriate connections could be made.
(see Tesla's patents 645576, 649621, and 787412 for atmospheric transmission,
and number 1,119,732 for transmission through the earth).
In the earlier patents, he claimed to have transmitted energy through
a long, partially-evacuated tube, and claimed that his device would do the same
through the atmosphere. (AS SOON AS other engineers figured out how to suspend
a metal terminal at a height of 15 miles.)
The latter patent, 1,119,732 described the device that was being built
at Wardenclyffe, and how it WOULD work when completed. This never happened.
As has been pointed out many times on this list, you don't have to
have a working device to obtain a patent. You just have to affirm that IF a
device is built to your specifications, it WILL work as you claim. Because
Tesla could envision his inventions in such detail, he applied for many patents
AS SOON AS he thought of them. Most of his inventions did work as specified,
but a few never reached that stage. He was a genius, but not infallible.
Hope this helps.
