I originally used a Log scale for the Y axis but it couldn't handle the
change in sign of the reactance, which of course is critical to the
discussion. In the end I opted for Linear on the basis that, for choke
discussions, we're not really interested in the detail when impedances
are below a few hundred Ohms :)
