Jim, the answer to your question is in the plot: proper termination
lowers radiated power; also, larger Zo "slightly" reduces radiated power
[from short thin wire antennas at the ends of transmission lines (pins,
e.g.!)]. The result should be understood in conjunction with the axioms.
If radiation from the end radiators (pins, ends of transmission lines)
is not of primary importance, then this result says nothing about how Zo
affects radiation.
