The concept of a variable parameter (VP) communications line is introduced. The VP concept permits control of the location and amount of electromagnetic radiation escaping from a transmission line to a nearby receiver. A specific implementation of the VP concept, utilizing ferrite loaded apertures activated by an external magnetic field, is studies. A coupling ration (defined as the ration of the radiated power in the 'ON' or activated condition to the radiated power in the 'OFF' or unactivated condition) of 20 dB is observed in agreement with theoretical predictions. The incorporation of the VP concept in certain existing transmission lines is analyzed. (Author)
