Original poster: "Malcolm Watts by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <m.j.watts-at-massey.ac.nz> Hi Harvey, all, The reason you cannot use wirelength considerations in describing the action of what *really is* a 1/4 wave resonator is that the wirelength thing applies *only* when there is little or no mutual inductance between sections of the wire. The velocity of propagation then approaches the free space 1/4 wavelength. If you coil the wire up, the mutual inductance suddenly comes into play and now the propagation velocity is inhibited. In effect that means that the waves travel up and down the resonator length/height in the same time it would take them to travel ???,000km in free space. For that reason, Tesla's resonator is described in some quarters as a velocity- inhibited resonator. In fact, the mutual inductance gives the structure a Q way beyond what a straight length of wire would have. Regards, malcolm
