Superluminal signal propagation has finally been achieved.

I have read three articles in legitimate journals of the
microwave/RF profession of efforts by a George Giakos and a Prof. T.
Koryu Isii of Marquette University in Milwaukee describing successful
transmission of a radio wave (non-TEM mode) at high frequency (from 8-10
Gigahertz) at speeds exceeding the normal intrinsic value 'c'. As
absurd as it sounds at the outset, the theory it is based on is valid.
In electromagnetic wave propagation, there is a quantity called Phase
Velocity, which can be greater than light, but no one until now has
believed that you could do anything with it because no energy packets
(of photons, etc.) could go faster than 'c'. This mathematical oddity
in the theory has been ignored experimentally after a few attempts
failed to disprove the theory.
Giakos and Ishii (mis-spelled above--no editor, sorry) constructed
a normal x-band waveguide and sent pulse-modulated microwaves thru them
in non-TEM mode (having to do with magnetic and electric field
parameters of the lightitself) to a reciever a known distance away.
What they found was that if you measured the velocity of the modulated
pulse, you get v>c. They even did it with an open air transmitter.
At 0 degrees (dead straight online), the velocity was c, but as you
moved the ang ignored. I can't find any flaws in the math, and don't
know enough to make quantitative statements about the experiments. For
what its worth, they claim the error is less than 0.1 %, small enough to
prove they are getting values of signal propagation > c. Interesting
at any rate (no pun intended, but laugh if you want). :)
