This paper presents some theoretical remarks and experimental data relating to applications of the transmission-line theory to antennas. It is emphasized that the voltage, the current, and the charge are affected by radiation in different ways, a fact which should be considered in any adaptation of line equations to antennas. It is shown experimentally and theoretically that in an antenna of length equal to an integral number of half wavelengths, which is energized at a current antinode, the effect of radiation on the current and the charge (but not on the voltage) can roughly be represented by adding to the resistance of the wires another fairly simple term.
