I agree with pointed peaks being bad and can all interference into the line . Also , unless there is a wire under that peak , it means your iron was not hot enough to allow the solder to flow properly.
But this would be the first time that I have ever heard of a "delay line".
Are you implying that a longer wire somehow changes the speed of light ??
I can see it causing a higher swr. But 'delay' .. its just not clicking for me.
Can you elaborate ??
