Largely true. I am a retired broadcast engineer who needed to know that the feedline impedance was 51.67 Ohms, -j0.15 because 50,000 Watts, if not radiated, can do serious damage to the transmission...

Disagree.

If a conventional VSWR meter is placed at the transmitter, with some appreciable length of coax between it and the antenna, the reflected power will appear to be lower due to the loss in...
