I'm afraid our friend Tyler still doesn't quite get it. The CURRENTS as measured by a thermo-ammeter in each wire of the feedline need to be equal. Period. Think for a moment...what is the meter showing then? It's showing the MAGNITUDE OF THE CURRENT VECTORS. No more, no less. The feedline could careless what the phase along its length is at any point. This is simple high-school vector math here. Each current and voltage has both a magnitude and a phase. If you want to stop feedline radiation, then the magnitudes of the current vectors needs to be the same. I fear this is a case where Tyler only has an o'scope and so can only think of things from a voltage and time perspective. "Has a hammer, every problem is a nail." The hams and engineers of the 1920's figured all of this anteena and feedline stuff out without o'scopes. They used paper and a pencil and math. We owe it to them to be able to do the same. Start there. Do the math. New thought: Tyler, when you made your experiments did you always use the same antenna? If you did, then it's possible that your antenna is always very ballanced. So you can't help but to see things from the perspective of an already good system. V & I will appear to be closely in-phase. That's beacuse the load looks very resistive; i.e. a low value of jX. But the rest of us aren't always so lucky. The jX is different on each half of the antenna. Go try it. Hang a dipole in an odd way and you'll see things change alot. It's no different than you trying to show folks about SWR issues when you're experiment is only with one good dummy load. It's misleading and fails to show what can really happen.
