Ed,

This is a little difficult because the curves are so closely spaced. One has
to make the plot rather large to identify the labels with the curves. In the
following example I put the labels all at the end of the curves and labeled
only every other one. I also put Tooltips on the curves in case it is being
viewed in a notebook.

I don't understand what you mean by having the Grid based on Omega. I just
drew a grid but make it very light and avoided the Dashed style (a al
Tufte).

plot[\[Tau]_, \[CapitalOmega]_] := 
 Module[{arg, abs}, {arg, abs} = 
   Factor[Together[
     ComplexExpand[
      Through[{Arg, 
         Abs}[(1 + I*2*\[CapitalOmega])/(1 + 
           I*2*\[Tau]*\[CapitalOmega])]]]]];
  {arg/Degree, 20*Log10[abs]}] 

Draw2D[
 {ParametricDraw[
     Tooltip[plot[#, \[CapitalOmega]], #], {\[CapitalOmega], -0.5, 
      0.01}] & /@ {7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15},
  Text[Framed[Style[phrase["\[Tau] = ", #], 12], FrameMargins -> 0], 
     plot[#, -0.5], {1, 0}, Background -> White] & /@ {8, 10, 12, 14}},
 AspectRatio -> 1,
 Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"phase/\[Degree]", "db"},
 RotateLabel -> False,
 GridLines -> {CustomGridLines[# &, {-10, 60, 10}, {LightGray}], 
   CustomGridLines[# &, {-20, 0, 5}, {LightGray}]},

Hello

I wonder whether someone out there could help me with the following problem.

plot[\[Tau]_, \[CapitalOmega]_] := Module[{arg, abs},
   {arg, abs} = Factor[Together[ComplexExpand[
        Through[{Arg, Abs}[(1 + I*2*\[CapitalOmega])/(1 +
I*2*\[Tau]*\[CapitalOmega])]]]]];
    {arg/Degree, 20*Log10[abs]}]

ParametricPlot[Table[plot[\[Tau], \[CapitalOmega]], {\[Tau], {7, 8, 9, 10,
11, 12, 13, 14, 15}}],
  {\[CapitalOmega], -0.5, -0.01}, AspectRatio -> 1, GridLines -> Automatic,
  GridLinesStyle -> Dashed, ImageSize -> Large]

I need to label each curve with the value of tau and, instead of the normal
grid, a grid based on the values of Omega.  

I saw something related to the label problem on the net but could not figure
out how to change it to my case.   Something with Epilog.

Many thanks

Ed
