I wonder what this does to the power or strength of the wave, does it cease to vary by the distance cubed, and become dependent on distance squared?
Now that is a worthy question. It would seem logical that if the energy of the magnetic field was spread over three dimensions and you changed the propagation to two dimensions the energy from the third dimension would be spread over the remaining two dimensions. For satellite communications, you could gain 1/3 signal strength for no additional cost is antenna size or power levels.
