RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

These are the standard set of equations for converting between VSWR, return loss, and reflection coefficient (Γ). A table of convenient values are presented at the bottom.
|Return Loss||Voltage Standing Wave Ratio||Reflection Coefficient|
Note: VSWR values were used to calculate the other two related values (rounded to 3 significant places)
|RL (dB)||VSWR||Γ||RL (dB)||VSWR||Γ||RL (dB)||VSWR||Γ||RL (dB)||VSWR||Γ|
