    Standing wave ratio is an important aspect for any ham radio station. If the SWR is too high then it can either damage the output stage of the transmitter(and I have does that before now), or if it has protection circuit which most modern rigs have then it can cause it to reduce its power.

    Using an SWR meter helps understand how the feeder and antenna system is performing so that the whole station vswr-meter-2837.jpg can operate to its best.

    I already know how to use an SWR meter. I took a (8) week course at a local collage and barely passed. :)
