When Coax is terminated at the transmitter end and the far end with an
impedance that is equal to its defined impedance we will have a SWR of 1:1.
Only when the currents on inner conductor and on shield are equal and the
current / voltage nodes coincide at the same locations then they'll cancel
If we have anything else that creates a SWR that is not 1:1 then waves will be
reflected from the ends. Hence no longer will the current and voltage nodes be
When nodes are no longer coinciding then we will have radiation.
What is wrong about this, what am I missing here?
