1/12–wave Matching for a Dipole: Why Bother?

During my recent presentation, I showed how the 1/12–wavelength matching technique using a short length of 50- and 75-ohm coax could be used to get a 1:1 match to 50 ohms at the transmitter end of a 75-ohm dipole. This is what is usually called 1:1 SWR. Rich KE1B pointed out that one could just use
