WHEN I MAKE MY OCCASIONAL CONTRIBUTIONS LONGER I GET
FLAK. WHEN I MAKE THEM SHORT (TERSE) I GET FLAK. MAYBE
I'LL BE ABLE TO LEARN SOMETHING FROM THIS.
ANYWAYS THE BULL DETECTOR FOUND SOME MORE POOP HERE.
AND I HAVE BEEN AWAY ONLY 6 HOURS OR SO.
PLEASE GUYS, IF YOUR GOING TO SUBMIT. BE AS LONG AS YOU
NEED BUT please GET IT RIGHT.
My SWR meter DOES read foward and reflected voltages, and
when used PROPERLY does NOT require that it be used at a
specific point a 1/2 wavelength or integer multiple from
the load. It can be used anywhere along a transmission
line and give me valid readings. If your meter gives
different readings (after allowing for normal line
losses) along a line then there might be rf on the
outside of his coax, or a busted swr meter, or a piece
of bogus test equipment.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING ALONG THEN THE FOLLOWING HAS
MEANING FOR YOU.
SWR is not really a big issue. If it becomes one go
back to square one of your antenna system design. The
high swr BY ITSELF is not a targeting goal in system
Kudos to LB,W4RNL for his excellent examination of Z
matching. I can tell he is someone to listen to. Worthy
reading material. Right on the money.
THERE NICE AND SHORT. HOPEFULLY NOT TOO TERSE.
IS EVERYONE HAPPY?
ObQrp; If I am putting out 20watts and reflect 15 does
that mean only 5 watts get radiated?
OH YEAH THE EXTRA LINE FEEDS ARE A PROBLEM FOR SOME,
SORRY BUT IT ONLY really ADDS ONE CHARACTER TO THE END
OF A LINE, NOT A FULL LINE WORTH OF CHARACTERS. MY SUBMISSIONS
MIGHT APPEAR LONGER THAN THEY REALLY ARE?
