Perhaps they talked to Storms or McKubre, but evidently did not even act on their advice.
Yesterday they told me they did talk to Storms, but they decided not to act on his advice, for the most part.
They also confirmed my impression that in their Pd-D experiments, they probably did not achieve high enough loading to produce cold fusion, according to McKubre's graph. (https://www.lenr-canr.org/word…loads/McKubre-graph-1.jpg) In one case, they may have come close. However, as you see in the graph, at borderline loading ratios below 0.96 you may get heat or you may not. Bear in mind that various method of measuring loading will produce varying ratios.
