Matching 75 ohm hardline to a 50 ohm transceiver



This is how to match the popular 75 ohm CATV hardline to a 50 ohm antenna:

          |                                                  |
          |        Overall Length 0.1628 (wavelength)        |
          |<------------------------------------------------>|
          |                                                  |
          |     75 ohm coax                50 ohm coax       |
          |     e.g. RG11/U                e.g. RG213/U      |
