A long time ago I had to do an analysis to determine whether it was feasable to use tuning stubs to balance a transmission line. As I recall, the reactive component was dependant on the length of the line with respect to the wavelength. How does cable capacitance figure in, and why is it ok just to terminate the receiver with an impedance equivelent to the cable ans output impedance if it is dependant on the length of cable? Is that only true if using unmatched impedances?
