I'm interested in making plots that are plotted on a polar grid or a

standard gridding machinery or if some other approach is necessary.
Another question is how would I get the data to clip inside the maximum
circle of the polar or smithchart?
there's probably a way of doing this, and not knowing your other
constraints maybe this isn't an option, but the path of least
resistance would be to make a polar subplot and transform your
rectangular data to polar coordinates for the purposes of
plotting (rather than transforming the grid to polar). This way
you'll get your clipping "for free."
