There are a variety of programs available to the Radio Amateur that will calculate virtually every transmission line parameter that one may need. However, I have found the routines to be inconveniently scattered among many different programs. In addition, the programs usually require the data to be entered in serial form in order to obtain the calculated output. If another calculation is desired, all the data must be re-entered.
