    I have taken many years of electronics classes. I know the formulas and all that. I was simply pointing out WHY he did do it, and that it was silly in the first place.

    By the way, we experimented with a similar scenario in class. We took straight wire and braided wire (a few feet), and ran various signals through them and monitored the oscilloscope.

    The braided wire had a crisp and clean signal, while the straight wire was fuzzy around the edges.

    you mean that doesn't work? ...dammit!

    I threw away all those fries for nothing!

    I saved my fries to offer to unsuspecting passengers...

    And why this is silly again?? I'll take the clean signal over the 'fuzzy' signal any day...

    Because the fuzz is likely noise somewhere in the MHz region.
    I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)

    Likely? Shouldn't the scope tell you the frequency?

    I wasn't present at the measurement, I'm just surmising based on the application.

    What'd you think about the 'noise' that appeared? It would have some sort of effect on the signal transmission I'd think...

    I'd love to hear about the results.

    Keep us updated.

    Are you going to tune your system with an oscilloscope?
