VSWR-to-Return Loss

Reference Data Rejection Insertion Loss

Definitions / RF Spectrum / VSWR to Return Loss / Watts to dBm / Frequency to Wavelength


Graphical Conversion Method:  To convert Return Loss from VSWR, locate the corresponding point on the blue curve for your VSWR using the blue scale to the right. Move vertically until you intersect the pink curve. Determine the corresponding Return Loss from the pink scale to the left.
