If we wanted to get technical, swr claims on this forum are typically just readings from an uncalibrated and relatively cheap vswr meter and will differ from the actual swr.Yes I agree. People complaining about something that is actually factually correct can be rather entertaining. LOL Just yanking your chain.
It would be silly for me to say you should state "my uncalibrated vswr meter reading is 1.5:1" I may however start expressing my uncalibrated vswr meter readings as 3:2. Maybe I shouldn't, someone might have a stroke lol
