That requires that at least one electrode dissociate and go
solution. That would put metal ions into the body in high
concentrations, and almost certainly cause local tissue damage.
Furthermore, the current flow would be noticeable and

He specifically indicated that it is to operate on existing
(cell phone) bands. Cell phones have good antennae, are not
human tissue, and still need a watt or so -- and they don't
well in some buildings. With a dipole on one end and a yagi on
other, 100mW is NOT receivable for more than a few miles.
obviously not enough. Cell phone repeaters are nowhere near as
a decent yagi, and thus have even less range.

We are not concerned with short-range *detection*. We need
*reception*. The signal has to be clearly receivable (not just
detectable) by existing cell systems in pretty much any
other words, it needs performance comparable to or better than
phones. Since phones have a watt and a darn good antenna, it
reason that a tracker with an implanted antenna needs much more
