Well, I hope Daniel is OK with letting us drift away from his great kit review, but Daniel, you apparently said all that needed to be said in your review so here we go off topic.
Just a question regarding the near field vs. far field. It has been stated that in the near field the energy is stored and the field is reactive. If this is similar to a tank circuit, then the energy has to go somewhere from storage, such as back to the antenna or circuit or is dissipated. What happens to this stored energy?
Also, the radiated E and H are at right angles in space and in phase in time and are perpendicular to the direction of radiation (Poynting’s vector). Does the time or space phase change in the near field?
Thanks for any help on this as I try to picture in my mind how this works.
