Re: Displacement Current Revisited

Hi John,

According to the formal definition of near and far fields given by 
someone else, my LEDs are being lit by received far fields. 
Personally I cannot understand on what grounds a distinction is being 
made other than it has a bearing on what the antenna "sees" as its 
load. I can't see that it makes any difference to laws governing 
received power as distance from the antenna is changed.
