Abstract : The availability of commercial precision coaxial hybrids now makes measurements on balanced two conductor transmission lines as easy and as practical as on an unbalanced coaxial system. These hybrids provide for a transformation from an unbalanced coaxial system to a balanced shielded system. Because of the nature of this balanced shielded system, the measurement of the characteristics of balanced loads connected thereto can be made with commercial coaxial test equipment. The theory upon which the measurement technique is based is outlined and the results of an experimental verification included. (Author)
