That's something I don't really understand. Why do you get the same loss in
coax if you run them parallel?
That's something I also had trouble getting my head around too. EMC
expert Henry Ott, who retired many years ago from AT&T Bell Labs, was
they guy who explained it to me. It has to do with the coupling between
the center conductor and the shield of coax -- when current flows in the
center, an equal current flows in the shield, and we're stuck with the
loss of both of those currents.
