The new tomographic reconstruction program TARDIS being implemented in the Main Injector and Recycler requires accurate longitudinal charge profiles measured by resistive wall current monitors (RWCM). A basic theory of signal attenuation due to skin effect resistances in coaxial transmission lines is presented to explain signal distortion from the RWCMs. The theory is used to generate a finite impulse response function that can be convoluted with a distorted signal to reproduce the original signal. Knowledge of the exact cable properties, (lengths, attenuation) in the line is essential and should be checked for the Main Injector and Recycler.
