If a 50 ohm generator is connected to a 50 ohm resistor (or resistance),
the maximum possible power is delivered to the load.
Maybe it should be "maximum *available* steady-state power" which is
not always the same thing as "maximum "possible" power"? :-)
And the 50 ohm resistance can be the V/I ratio looking into a Z0-match
point with a high mismatch loss between the Z0-match and a mismatched
antenna, i.e. maximum available power (minus feedline losses) can still
be delivered to a mismatched load by doing the matching back down the
transmission line, e.g. an antenna tuner.
