Radio Principles

With a severe standing wave, at best the signal will be highly attenuated. At worst we will destroy the output stages of the transmitter, and if it is a high power one disastrously so. Altering the matching unit should improve the ratio. When there is no reflection, the system is balanced; the meter should read "1" or "1:1".
