The measurement of wave lengths of standing electrical waves in Lecher wires is a standard method of determining the frequency of high frequency oscillators. A common method of discovering the positions of the nodes is by shorting the wires with a small bulb, such as a flashlight bulb. However, we have found another way to determine the positions of the nodes and an interesting phenomenon which occurs in connection with this method. This, as far as we know, has never been reported before.
