Thanks to all of those who responded to my initial question. I guess I need to
clarify the
question. I know that SWR should be Z(load) divided by Z(line) when load is >
than line
and vice versa, but then the formula for finding Z(load) must be tainted. The
only ref I have
found is Z=squareroot (R^2+J^2) When using this product, the above formula
does not
apply. Am I using the wrong formula to determine Z or the wrong formula to
determine SWR?
example: 1j50 is essentially Z=50, but it does not provide 1:1 SWR. of course
50j0 does.
A Smith Chart or X/Y vector graph with SWR circles is a simple graphical
solution, but I was
looking for a mathematical one. Thanks again  Dallas W3PP
