BOG is a traveling wave (Beverage) antenna at its best.

If some "tunning" artefacts were present,
they probably resulted from incorrect termination,
varying height above ground, and varying ground properties.

Those "tunning" artefacts by no means negate the traveling wave principle,
although an additional (interfering) voltage may appear.
