Abstract : The report describes a new antenna sweeping method which gives a rapid, accurate measurement of VSWR over a designated frequency spectrum. This new method offers technical and procedural advantages over alternate methods and it is compared with regard to cost and time consumption with two other methods presently being used. Theory of operation, test setup, and test procedures are given for each of the three methods. Test results using the new method on various antenna systems are tabulated and its potential applications are summarized. (Author)
