Abstract
Equations are derived for the phase velocity of an electromagnetic groundwave propagating over a plane earth having a constant surface impedance. The equations are found to differ in essence from one previously derived by King and Schlak (1967). As a result of the interpretation made here, it is concluded that the local phase velocity over a highly inductive surface exceeds the velocity of light in free space at all distances.
