**Length
calculation of open feeder wire on the transceiver**

Dear hamoperator, for the generally consideration of reaktance for a open feeder wire is following formula generally applicable:

Zr = Zo * cotan(360 * l/Lambda) for degrease or Zr = Zo * cotan(2*pi * l/Lambda) for radianten calculation

Wether degrease or radiant calculation you must switch it on your pocket calculator. Zr is the reactance from the load, Zo the input impedance of the wire, l the length or wire an lambda the wave length (300/frequency in mc)

**Now a special
case - resonance length:**

For lambda/4 and uneven more of that takes effect: Zo² = Za * Ze ====> serial resonance circuit

Zo is the wire impedance, Za the output load (also Zr reactance matching) and Ze the impedanze of input load.

For lambda/2 and even more takes effect: Ze = Za ====> parallel resonance circuit
