Abstract : The patent describes a compact waveguide-to-coaxial transition coupling. It has a half-height waveguide with a shorted termination and with a tapered ridge waveguide section having a port therein one-quarter wavelength from the termination into which port is floatingly fitted a coaxial line termination with impedance matching steps thereon. Inductive buttons on the side walls of the half-height waveguide laterally of the tapered ridge waveguide section provide transition of microwave at a voltage standing wave ratio of 1.1 or less over at least a 13 percent band.
