and also using the Sim Smith application ?
I want to be able to design coax matching stubs and am a total newbie.

Here's a QST article of a very good basic introduction to the Smith Chart
that should remove the intimidation very quickly. ARRL membership may be
required for access:
Another is the excellent three-part QST series by Ward Silver, N0AX. Part I
Jim, K9YC has drafted a very informative PowerPoint presentation on Sim
