A Deterministic Method for Optimizing VSWR

By using in conjuction both frequency and time domain reflection measurements, it is possible to positively identify the specific circuit discontinuities that contribute to a given VSWR lobe. Corrective action can then be readily determined for optimum...
Improving VSWR is typically an iterative trial-and-error exercise when utilizing either frequency or time domain information. For example, while circuit modifications which decrease time domain reflectometry (TDR) "bumps" (discontinuities) are generally a good thing, decreasing a specific TDR bump does not necessarily improve VSWR within a frequency band of...
