Summary: 
A transmission line created by cables adjoined by connectors is influenced by noise from connectors with contact failure, and such noise degrades communication quality. The authors used a model of a connector with increased contact resistance in a coaxial cable and measured the electromagnetic near-field around a cable while changing positions of the model. In this paper, the result shows that the radiated electromagnetic field has no relationship with the position along the cable of a connector with increased contact resistance, when the contact condition of connector, contact resistance value, measurement position, and length of a transmission line are constant.
