Dispersive characteristics conductor and strip meander lines are
numerically investigated. Dependences of phase delay and attenuation in some
types of surface wave on geometrical parameters of the line are computed. It is
shown that the examined single conductor meander lines are capable of guiding
the surface wave with small attenuation under relatively small slow coefficients
in the wide range of frequencies.
