- For a given transmission line, such as a coaxial cable or waveguide, the
__ratio__of the maximum current to the minimum__current__. It is a measure of the impedance matching of the__line__. This ratio is__equal__to 1 when there is complete__impedance__matching, in which case the__maximum__possible__RF power__reaches the load, such as an antenna. Its abbreviation is CSWR. Also called standing wave ratio (2). - acronym CSWR
