What happens to the swr and feedpoint impedance at the transmitter if a
RESONANT dipole is fed with ladder line?

Because there is no reactance at the antenna, I presume there is no
reactance at the transmitter end regardless of line length?

However, does the resistance get tranformed--possibly putting it out of
range of solid state finals?

How much effect will rain on the line and imbalance of each side of the
line to nearby objects have on the resistance or introduce
