Why is there no variation caused by this swept parameter?

I quite like Qucs now that I more or less have the hang of it. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to get a parametric sweep working. I'm running an AC simulation on this circuit: For now I'm not ...

Matching wideband antenna with QUCS

I am trying to match a dipole antenna to a 50Ω source. Problem is that for my frequencies (VHF) the complex impedance basically circles the 50Ω point between VSWR 2 and 3 lines. Because of that ...
