Excuse me? Where did I misquote anyone?

Wrong .... and that is the reason why you shouldn't be commenting on controllers. For example .... entering a zipcode makes the controller location specific.

A virtual landscape works fine for this type of study as long as the sensors are exposed to the elements.
Again wrong. The assumption of 100% system efficiency invalidates this study as an accurate reflection of field performance.
