Hello,

I'm trying to build a model of a calibration kit and am using Ap Note 1287-11 "Specifying Calibration Standards for Agilent Network Analyzers".

I don't quite understand Equation 1.10 and the formula for Beta*L. This equation asserts that Beta*L is a function of alpha*L which doesn't seem right and am wondering whether this is a typo. The derivation in appendix B, formula 2B.5, shows the same formulation with a cryptic (and incomplete) "Note" in the pdf version.

I think I could agree with this equation if it was the complex propagation constant, Gamma*L.

Can someone confirm whether the Beta*L equation is correct as shown in Ap Note 1287-11. If it's not correct, could you indicate what the formulation should be.

Thanks
