New Technology is Old:
Just for those who scoff at conspiracy theories and cover-ups the following reports are about something we all know and love called New Technology, but underground radio transmission is a hundred years old as we see left and below. This gives support to my ongoing research into the theory that there has been no new technology since the 1930’s.

Mine Fatalities Could be Reduced By Erica Sullivan
In light of recent mining tragedies, many mining companies are re-energizing their efforts to explore new technologies that provide wireless communication and tracking capabilities. One of the technologies these companies may soon be looking at is the Underground Radio, a novel device that would enable two-way communication through hundreds of feet of rock or earth. The Underground Radio was originally developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory by physicist David Reagor. The Underground Radio uses very low frequency (VLF) http://www.innovation-america.org/mine-fatalities-could-be-reduced
bizjournals.com: New ‘underground radio’ technology improves emergency capabilities
Aug 2, 2006, 12:43pm MDT Updated Aug 2, 2006, 12:43pm. Los Alamos National Laboratory says Vital Alert Technologies Inc. has signed two exclusive license agreements with the lab for Underground Radio?, a technology that will provide two-way voice and text capability known as Through-The-Earth-Communication? for first responders, rescue and security teams, underground miners and the public in critical emergency situations.
Underground Radio, originally developed by LANL for the Department of Energy, is being commercialized by Vital Alert Technologies for use by emergency crews in urban centers and by the mining industry…”The new technology is a breakthrough in digital and wireless communications,” says Joe Miller, president and CEO of Vital Alert, in a news release. “As a pre- and post-emergency warning, evacuation and rescue communication system, it solves radio frequency failure problems and eliminates systems’ downtime complications in difficult environments such as subways, tunnels, skyscrapers and mines. The new technology will also greatly enhance the ability of mining companies to protect their workers.”… Underground Radio uses very low frequency (VLF) electromagnetic radiation and digital audio compression technologies to carry voice and text data. The VLF signals also can transmit tracking and location data for radio users in case they are unable to respond.
Wiki: On-going developments based on initial research undertaken in Australia by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) after the 1994 mine accident and given further impetus by the investigations into the Sago Mine disaster the PED System is undergoing further development to provide two-way through-the-Earth communication capability.
James H Rogers
At Rex research.com: we find James H. ROGERS electrical experimenter and his patented Underground & Underwater Radio from around 1917 Static-free Reception & Transmission Underwater & Underground.
From the Electrical Experimenter magazine (March 1919), pp.787-789, 834, 835 ~ “America’s Greatest War Invention” written by H. Winfield Secor
An invention which has been termed the greatest American war achievement is the Rogers underground and sub-sea radio system. The Rogers system does away entirely with aerial wires, and it is only a mater of months now before all aerial wire systems the world over will be pulled down. Wonderful things have been accomplished by the new system, chief of which is the total elimination of static and the increase of the loudness of received signals, which is often as high as 5000 times the usual strength. Interference, too, is done away with almost entirely now. The Rogers invention is of tremendous importance and revolutionizes our previous ideas on wireless to an extent never dreamt of before. We urge every one interested in radio to read the accompanying authoritative article which discloses the full technical data on the new system for the first time in any periodical.

Note: the addition of the word digital, something also quite old but impractical in past times due to the need for complex transistor circuitry. All is explained on the transistor page.
Underground radio and Nikola Tesla
altered-states.net: The mind conditioned by Hertzian aerial radio concepts has trouble grasping the idea that signaling can take place without any above-surface antenna, totally through the ground. James Harris Rogers, taking a cue from Tesla, circa World War I, built a radio system in which both sending and receiving antennas were sunk completely into the ground or submerged in bodies of water. He found this system far more effective and far less vulnerable to interference than any aerial radio Signal strength has been said to be 5,000 times stronger
The military is on to this, as evidenced in the Navy’s ELF and by a U. S. Air Force project underway called Ground Wave Emergency Network. GWEN is a low-frequency communications system designed for used during a nuclear war. The network will have a cross-continent series of 600-foot diameter underground copper screens connected to 300-foot towers reminiscent of Tesla’s Wardenclyffe.
Among the advantages of the system is its invulnerability to the effects of the electric pulse sent out by nuclear blasts. Such a pulse fries at one stroke any and all solid-state electronics within its extensive range. (Strong electric vibrations from a Tesla coil or magnifying transmitter have a similar effect on solid state and will scramble or disable such circuitry temporarily or even dud it permanently.) It’s revealing that for last-ditch doomsday communications, the government reverts to Tesla’s grounded radio. http://altered-states.net/barry/tesla/
