+ Transcalc is an analysis and synthesis tool for calculating the
+ electrical and physical properties of different kinds of RF and
+ microwave transmission lines. Transcalc was somewhat inspired by the
+ functionality of Agilent Technologies' commercial program linecalc.
+ Transcalc aspires to be more functional in the long run and
+ well-documented with appropriate references to formulas that are used.
+ Transcalc is built using the GIMP toolkit (GTK) for its GUI interface.
+ For each type of transmission line, using dialog boxes, you can enter
+ values for the various parameters, and either calculate its electrical
+ properties (analyze), or use the given electrical requirements to
+ sythesize physical parameters of the required transmission line.
+ Available transmission lines (this list will expand with subsequent
+ releases): microstrip, rectangular waveguide, coaxial line, coupled
+ microstrip.
