antenna circuit theory help!! Im having trouble understanding vswr and current path in an antenna system. Example is the dipole...Ive read that the parasitic capacitance between the 2 wires forms the complete circuit but then I read about standing waves that reflect at the open circuit. My questions are...if capacitance completes the circuit why does current reflect back ti the source? How does electric current reflect and travel a different direction without emf? If at higher frequencies an open circuit is not actually open then why does the current get reflected back? If current cant flow in an open circuit how the heck did it start flowing toward the load in the first place?
