It's still orders of magnitude, both in received power and amount of time the big transmitters have been around for.

And yes frequency plays a part too, but this article doesn't specify any frequency so even if some frequencies were bad, you can't say this one is bad.

Plus this one is induction not RF so it's different again.

The difference is you know a launching rocket is definitely going to be at the launch pad.

If a landing rocket say misses by 10km whilst coming down, it is going to make a big mess.
A launching rocket could perhaps launch and then veer off back towards the ground but it is less likely to occur and can be killed a lot faster.
