"natural scattering" of light and the innuendo of an etheric wind appears to be the topic.
Do you have a science reference for the ether wind?

This illustration shows what is happening from the point of view of the observer at rest. Therefore no corrections are necessary.
For moving observers, of course, both the time dilation and the length contraction occur. Yes, this will modify the wave ... but the vertical component of the electric field strength will not disappear in this way. That is, the moving observer should be able to notice that the field strengths of his vertical beam are skewed.
It is actually irrelevant whether the emitter is moving or not.
The measurement of the speed of light should provide the same value in each frame.
Furthermore, the emitter is a horizontal dipole antenna. It produces the electromagnetic waves in a wide angle. But we consider only two narrow beams: one spreads strictly vertically upward from the point of view of the stationary observer P and the second does the same, but for moving observer P'. Because the second beam is tilted, its electric field gets vertical component. Please see figure below.
The angled wave front that you have arriving at the receiver isn't perceived as angled due to synchronisation issues in the timing of when it's perceived as arriving at any given point.
If you want to test any part of that, simply put a laser beam in to follow the same path as any point on your wave front and ask yourself when a pulse of laser light on that path will be perceived as arriving at the receiver.
QuoteThe angled wave front that you have arriving at the receiver isn't perceived as angled due to synchronisation issues in the timing of when it's perceived as arriving at any given point.You can not prove that. The time dilation corrects proportionally ~ vē / cē, but the inclination is proportional ~ v / c.
The field strengths have extra no spatial extent - they are in every point in it. Therefore, the consideration like the consideration of the refraction of light can not be applied here.
Take two points ...
Field strengths are distributed in the same way as light...
... we could measure our speed through the aether simply by measuring how these strengths change.
As I said, both electric field strength and magnetic field strength are present in one point. We do not need two points. Simultaneity does not help you.
In the cases where they are tilted, they were produced by something that would swear blind that it was generated in such a way as to make it horizontal, so when it is received, it will likewise be perceived as horizontal even though it is tilted.
