STRIPLINELOSS (EpsR, tandelta, sigma, Z0, W, H, T, f)
% STRIPLINELOSS  Calculate the attenuation of a stripline
% 
%    [alpha, alphaC, alphaD] = STRIPLINELOSS (EpsR, tandelta, sigma, Z0, W, H, T, f) 
%      EpsR is the relative dielectric constant
%      tandelta is the loss tangent of the dielectric
%      sigma is the conductivity of the metal
%      Z0 is the characteristic impedance of the stripline
%      W is the stripline width
%      H is the height above and below the ground planes
%      T is the metal thickness
%      f is the frequency of operation
%
