The harmonic currents will obviously be out of phase with the harmonic
voltage, and cannot exit the top of the coil so if they are indeed
the coil base they must be completing their loop in the fields from the
itself - the quadrature, non dissipative,  H or  E fields.  Very little
radiation field will be generated from such a small radiating element,
at harmonic frequencies.
The current into the coil,  displayed as the voltage over the resistor in
series with the coil, looked like a pure sinewave. So the harmonics were
only present in the transmitter output VOLTAGE, not in the current into the
