## Main Question or Discussion Point

This minimal-math question may have been answered in other thread(s) but they were too mathematical for me.....

Feynman explains clearly, with minimal math, that electromagnetic dipole radiation

Does exist?

Velocity is c?

__on axis__rapidly approaches zero with distance. But I am wondering if there is not measurable radiation on the axis of a dipole antenna if you are only a few wavelengths away. This would have to be a changing__electric__field with zero__magnetic__field - ie, longitudinal electric "waves".Does exist?

Velocity is c?
