Re: R: SWR testing of AO-40 S-band antennas

February 1995 QEX  A UHF+ VSWR bridge by Paul Wade.
He got 30 dB RL at 2.3 GHz using 0603 chip resistors.

You have to be quite careful about your cables and connectors
when accurately measuring SWR.  You can actually tune a 
microwave system by swapping non-precision cables 
for best performance :-).
