# Using a Non-radiating Network to Match a Dipole Antenna

Match a short dipole for resonance at 1.4 GHz with an LC matching section. The matched network is modelled using a Spice circuit and S-parameters.

The dipole length is approximately 1/3λ. The matching network consists of a 2.43 pF shunt capacitor and 41.2 nH series inductor and is connected between the source and the dipole.
Note: The matching SPICE file (Match_circuit.cir) and Touchstone file (Matching.s2p) are included with the example.
