## Main Question or Discussion Point

hi all....

Something doesn't quite add up here:

A radio wave is an electromagentic wave, right.

It therefore travels at the speed of light, right.

Then why does it actually take a finite amount time (like secoonds or even miliseconds) to travel a couple of kilometers???????

mathematically, just doesn't make sense.

In theory, the time to travel a couple of km should be almost negligible!!

but its not- evidently!

thanks
