How do you deal with hight order mode? Do you suppose that your guide
is monomode? If your guide is monomode you need only to use an
equation for computing Z_0 (that is a complex quantity because your
are not lossless) and l_0 (electrical length). I will please to help
you but if you want to implement full model of rectangular wave guide,
you can not with qucs because it consider that it could exist only one
mode per component.
