Antenna & SWR

Antenna SWR
Have you ever measured the SWR of a simple antenna?
It should NOT have been 1:1
Lots of people think that a good antenna should have a 1:1 SWR as measured by an antenna analyzer. That is just not true, and this article will explain why.

We need to look at what SWR means, and how an "antenna system" 
Where the energy really goes in an antenna system.
Will a high SWR blow up my transmitter?
                              ( No, it will not, but POOR TUNING can.)
