On my AT-300 Antenna Tuner there is a gage. On the left it says â€œForwardâ€, on the right is says â€œReflectedâ€ and in the middle are a bunch of red lines indicating SWR.
So, if I transmit at 25 watts (psk31), I can adjust the â€œtunerâ€ to 1:1 SWR, very little â€œReflectedâ€ and the â€œForwardâ€ meter hovers between 50 & 100 watts.
Does this mean Iâ€™m transmitting about 75 watts (even though my output is set to 25 watts in the radio), or, does this mean that approximately 75% of my 25 watts are being transmitted? (If the latter, how do I improve output?)
