This is fine for free space, but if you're trying to calculate the
wavelength in something like coax you have to take into account the change
in velocity:


Wave Lenght (in meters) = (VF.c)/f  

Where VF = velocity factor (about 0.6 for RG59)

        c = speed of light in vacuum in m/s

        f = frequency in Hz

Wave length.


Brian,

        wave length = 300/freq (Mhz)
