VSWR Conversion Table

VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio) and Return Loss both measure the same parameter i.e., the signal reflected back in a transmission line. VSWR is defined as the ratio of the maximum to minimum voltage on a loss-less transmission line (expressed as 3.0:1, 2.0:1). This ratio represented in dB is called as Return Loss. The table below converts between VSWR, return loss, reflection coefficient, mismatch loss, reflected power and through power. Click here to use the VSWR Calculator.
