Hi Fred, KF0AK Supposing that the impedance of your load i.e. the antenna is 50+j0 ohm and the characteristic impedance of your transmission line is 75 ohm the SWR in it is 75/50 = 1.5 Because of the above SWR your 75 ohm transmission line make an impedance transformation in any point of it as you can see looking at the 1.5 SWR circle in to a Smith Chart. The only effect to trim the lenght of your transmission line will be that to transform the 50+j0 ohm impedance of your load to another R+/-jX impedance that as seen by your TX i.e. the 50+j0 ohm generator is in condition to transfer the maximum possible power in your mismatched transmission line but in any case the SWR in to the 75 ohm line is still 1.5 in any point of it. > Remember if the feed line is cut to an electrical half length the input > impedance equals the output impedance. It is correct as shown by one complete turn over the SWR circle of the Smith Chart and if the impedance of your load i.e. the antenna is 50+j0 ohm than your TX i.e. the generator will again see an impedance of 50+j0 ohm but the SWR in to the 75 ohm line is still 1.5 > Fred (KF0AK) 73" de i8CVS Domenico _______________________________________________ Sent via AMSAT-BB@amsat.org.
