Smith Chart question

  1. Nov 9, 2013 #1
    Hello guys,

    I am using the Smith Chart to calculate impedance in lines, adapted lines, and lines with a stub in parallele (Short circuit).

    I understood how to get Zin using the chart, first calculate reduced impedance, draw the circle, etc...

    Now I have a question regarding this, and hopefully someone can clarify this.

    If we have leakage/loss (γ=α+jβ and α non null) I have been told that I need to calculate how much loss in db/λ I have and then translate the old zin (reduced Zin) vertically by this same amount in oder to get the new zin, is this correct?
