      Hank, thanks for the distinction. However, even if the wave is
      re-reflected (back and forth around the speed of light about 1.6
      million journeys per second, to us mortals, for all practical purposes
      there remains a high voltage wave which is "standing" ie not moving,
      at the final transistor (or tube). Remember the wave tanks from high
      school physics? Those waves don't appear to move. They just stay
      put.
