In communications and electronic engineering, a transmission line is a specialized cable designed to carry alternating current of radio frequency, that is, currents with a frequency high enough that their wave nature must be taken into account. Transmission lines are used for purposes such as connecting radio transmitters and receivers with their antennas, distributing cable television signals, and computer network connections.

“A line in long array, where they wind betwixt green islands;
They take a serpentine coursetheir arms flash in the sunhark to the musical clank;”
