This morning at 11:00 am, I will present a forum in the Embassy Suites Redstone Room at the 2016 Huntsville Hamfest. I will offer some answers to the question, “What is the Near Field?”
This talk explains the near field, taking waves propagating along transmission lines as a starting point. Understanding a few basic concepts like field impedance and energy velocity makes the mysteries of antenna behavior more comprehensible. Following are my slides.
