Abstract [en]

A method and an arrangement for matching the antenna of a radio device in transmitting condition. The antenna impedance in the output of the power amplifier of a transmitter is adjusted by means of a π-shaped reactive matching circuit, the component values of which can be selected from a relatively wide array of the alternatives. The component values are selected by means of the multiple-way switches, which only are located in the transverse branches of the matching circuit. The switches are set (706) by the control unit, input variables of which being the SWR value provided by the directional coupler, the operating band used each time and a value of the transmitting power. The matching is based on an adjusting process to be executed at regular intervals, in which process the control unit tries different combinations of the switch states and finally selects (710) the combina¬ tion, which brings the lowest SWR value. In the beginning of the adjusting process the control unit reduces (705), on grounds of the current values of the input variables, the number of the combinations to be tried. The antenna matching maintains relatively good, although the internal output impedance of the amplifier and the impedance from the output towards the antenna would strive to differ from each other for external reasons, a band changing or a change in the outptut power.
