An exact expression for the currents at any site of a finite discrete open RLC transmission line is obtained. The line is excited at one of its ends by an harmonic current and the other end is kept open. Several regimes are analysed for different values of the components of the line. An effective attenuation factor can be defined for a semi-infinite line. This attenuation factor is evaluated and it is shown that it does not vanish even in the case of a lossless line for a certain range of the exciting frequency.
