    I wonder has anyone ever attempted to heat a coup, infact any outbuilding wirelessly?
    I am considering using a magnetron & PSU from an old microwave oven to transmit via a focused waveguide on to a receiver/ radiator. Efficiency will be key, but this could save on running armoured power cables. Then if powered/ supplemented via a wind/ water turbine.....
    Another option may be ground source heat exchange.

    Interesting concept but why does the coop need to be heated?
