Longitudinal Waves and Transverse Waves tests

The following is an electric wave experiment to demonstrate the inverse relationship between the coil, or magnetic inductor and the capacitor, or electrical inductor, and their usage in propagation of the electromagnetic field components.
An analog computer is used to study the space distribution of the electromagnetic field component of transverse and longitudinal waves along a transmission line in two different configurations (LMD/TEM).
This is the electricity Tesla was propagating from his Magnifying Transmitter. In the Tesla's Magnifying Transmitter, the energy is countinuously bounced back and forth between the earth and the reflecting capacitance at a rate timed to a natural rate of the earth.....

TEST N°1) The TEM Transmission Line:
The TEM (Transverse ElectroMagnetic) line is the analog simulation of transverse EM waves propagation in space coming from two parallel wires, this is the conventional flow of EM radiation.
You may notice that the Magnetic energy is in Space OPPOSITION with the Dielectric energy
TEST N°2) LMD Transmission Line:
The LMD (Longitudinal Magneto-Dielectric) line is the analog simulation of longitudinal EM waves propagation in space coming from two parallel wires, this is the unconventional flow of the EM radiation.
You may notice that the Magnetic energy is in Space CONJUCTION with the Dielectric energy
The method used for measuring the magnetic induction
Additional notes :
Each coil has been checked (with an LC oscillator circuit) so as to obtain the same inductance ( L=1.58 mH).
Coils specs (L1 to L8) : about 150 turns (l=85mm) of 4/10 mm on a ferrite rod ( l=120 mm, 9 mm diam)
All voltages measurements have been done with an oscilloscope.
