Many Amateur Radio operators are familiar with the concept of the Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) and the effect it has on the transmission and reception of signals. Few however have an understanding beyond the adjustment of an antenna tuner to reduce SWR. SWR Explainedsets out to fill that gap that makes electromagnetic Waves, transmission Lines and VSWR comprehensible.
Written by a leading electrical engineer, SWR Explained explains what waves are, how they move in free space and how guided waves react. Steering clear of heavy mathematical theory, learn how transmission lines react and how to use transmission lines as resonant circuit elements. Includes designs for measuring transmission lines and how to work a VSWR meter.
