Abstract : The patent describes an apparatus for modifying the insertion phase of a ferrite microwave phase shifter. A plurality of transverse metal plates are inserted into the waveguide to change the insertion phase. At least two plates are inserted into the waveguide through slots separated by a predetermined distance to keep the VSWR to a minimum. Each pair of plates introduces a predetermined amount of phase change. A sufficient number of pairs of plates are inserted to bring the insertion phase of the phase shifter within an allowable range of deviation from an ideal figure.
