For more information on Long Wire antennas
(the dipole is a subset of L.W. antennas)
see the Antenna Fundamentals chapter (2)
in the Old (1970's) ARRL Antenna Books,
especially the sections on Antenna Impedance
and Harmonically Operated Antennas.
Basically Current Feed is when the feedpoint
is a Current Node and Voltage Feed is when
the feedpoint is a Voltage Node.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Voltage vs Current feed
OK, here we go with Antennas 101 again. I've just spent 45 minutes
through the ARRL Handbook (77th ed) and the ARRL Antenna Book (18th ed)
looking for an explanation of voltage feed versus current feed. It
may/must be in there, but I couldn't find an index entry and a search
through antenna fundamentals chapters turned up nothing. Yet people who
know antennas use the terminology all the time.
Can anyone either point me to the discussion I've overlooked in one of
these books or offer a basic definition of these terms? Thanks!
