  • Transmission line length to antenna
  • The speed of light
  • Signal time to travel transmission line length
  • Expressed as a phase angle for simplicity
  • Easily identified using the Smith Chart
  • Questions you will be able to answer with authority are:
    • When you add or subtract feedline, what happens…
      • to the SWR?
        • Why?
        • Why not?
      • to Z?
        • Why?
        • Why not?
      • to the reactance (X) of the vector impedance, R + jX?
    • Why does the Smith Chart only represent half of a wavelength?
    • How does the “Phase” indicated on a Smith Chart relate to
      • time?
      • wavelength?
