Let's assume I have a Bird 43 showing 140W forward and 15W
reflected using a 250W slug.
The power reading error range of a Bird 43 using a 250W slug
(calibrated to factory spec) for both forward and reflected
power, with about 140 watts forward power and 15 watts
reflected showing, would be from 100-150 watts.
Since I can't measure power easily to anything much less
than that, how would you design or calibrate or verify the
