Hi Dean, all you say is correct, especially about the relative distances
..... but I think you missed the point.
I'm not talking flow of electrons here,
but the propagation of the Voltage change along the cable.
Think of sound traveling through air, the molecules end up in the same
but the sound travels in one direction.
The other analogy I thought of would be singing (not playing)
into a didjeridoo. Bet it would sound different depending which end you
sang into (didj players??).
Anyway, at the moment I'm not tempted to try my cables in different
directions, and I bet what Hans says holds most of the answer to this.
