Hi CraigM,

Locating and rectifying high Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) in a mobile antenna system is usually an easy fault to locate and fix.

There are 2 main methods of locating VSWR.
1. Anritsu Site Master test box used to measure VSWR levels and find the distance to fault.
2. Divide and conquer using a load.

Then replace faulty equipment when located.
