Just the second paragraph was worth the price of admission for me.
Seems like I have always known that Voltage always take the path of least resistance.
I did not understand why fan dipoles worked until now though.
Maybe I am just slower than the average person but I never thought of RF as just Voltage. I don't think I have read anything (until it just now it clicked and I looked up the definition of RF) that ever clearly stated that RF (radio frequency) is simply AC voltage AT a radio frequency.
I've been a mechanic for most all my life it is all I have ever done for a living other than a year of concrete work, and of course lawn mowing as my first paying job.
Electronics has always been the most challenging part of the job for me.
I got into Ham radio a little over three years ago determined to learn more about electronics through the hobby. I have found very little written info that explains a lot of the very basic information I require to understand whats going on. Most info seems to be written for people with an electronics back ground of some kind or years and years of experience and learning already under their belt.
I just need to be able to see how it works or be hit over the head with the obvious before I "get" it.
