I also have a serious question, if it went faster than light would it not also go back in time. Therefore it would be received before it was sent ?

I'm sorry for this question, but I must ask in hopes that someone will know.
I was under the impression that radio waves travel at the speed of light because they are the same as light waves, just oscillating at different frequencies.
If a radio wave can be "abused" enough to to travel faster than the speed of light, then why can't light be "abused" enough to travel faster than the speed of light?
I also have to wonder what affect these "abused" waves would have on the humans who might use cell phones that emitted these waves, as suggested as a possible application in the future.
The warnings of current cell phone use on the brain just won't go away.

I smell something fishy – still they got there $3m to continue research. Getting research money is an art it’s all smoke and mirrors.
We know how fast RF travels and its loss in all materials. I don't believe it and I’m convinced time will tell. But it’s possible they are not investigating conventional RF waves even exploring entangled pairs, but not with $3m.
Being composed of tightly focused wave packets that are constantly dispersed and reconstructed out of other waves, these subbeams neither diffract nor decay in the same way as conventional radiation beams

This little news blip cane out 1/18/2008 but I guess everyone missed it... as I did search and no where in ATS was it mentioned???
please take time to give it a careful read... not only have they broken the superluminal (Faster than light) but have discovered a phenomenon equivalent to a sonic boom...
