Thank you so much, I especially like the comments you added.
I did try unsuccessfully running the problem and it appears the solution doesn't converge on my machine with the following messages:

Info : GetDP - 1000 Iterations / Residual: 275968
Info : GetDP - Arpack required 50 iterations
Also, I was curious with regards two issues:
* You don't apply symmetry along the center line, why not?
* Wouldn't seeding the solution with the solution to the DC case (freq = 0.) speed up resolution significantly? I imagine e sub t could be specified, with h sub t similarly based on the DC current into a 50 ohm load.
Another consideration with regards seeding, the non-transverse fields will be very small (zero) starting at freq=0; if we swept the frequencies the field solutions to the lower frequency should always work well for the next, with the non-transverse increasing beyond when higher order modes become possible (the point at which we wouldn't be interested in using u-strip anyway).

here is a small example for simulating the impedance and propagation constant
of a simpe microstrip line (2D cross-section).

Has anyone done the formulation for the RF characterization of microstrip? DC is clearly in the examples, but I don't see a microstrip formulation with determination of impedance and phase velocity (beta) in the frequency domain.
