Bell Labs Wave Machine: Mismatched Impedance

Two segments of the Bell Labs apparatus are connected. The segments have different impedance. When a pulse travels from high impedance to low impedance, it is reflected with positive polarity and transmitted with positive polarity. When a pulse travels from low impedance to high impedance, it is reflected with negative polarity and transmitted with positive polarity.
