Understanding SWR ralphm on 29/8/19
Were there ever any retractions or corrections made to this article? K5DVW lists Table 1 showing the 33% reflected voltage at 2:1 VSWR for example, yet lower down the article he mentions nothing of these losses. Also, if the feedline is connected directly to the transmitter without the tuner, the reflected wave will partially dissipate in the resistance of the transmitter increasing heat and adding losses to the signal being transmitter. I mean, someone needs to explain how the signal being reflected won't be dissipated by the transmitter. There seems to be a few flaws to this article. The SWR losses can be shown by using Ohm's Law. Also I have tried emailing K5DVW, but to date he has not responded.
