This is interesting, 1:1 is 10w 2:1 is 5w, 3:1 is 2.5w and 4:1 is 1.25w 
mismatch that radiates from the antenna if you just use ratios.  So some where 
in between is what is actually happening.

Where does all this lost RF go?

Some of it radiates from the coax, ground or where ever it finds a near resonant
route, or just heat or any other combination.  Mainly trouble. The rule
of thumb like Ken and the Doc say, is anything that makes up 1/8 wave length, 
like on cable between
equipment becomes a point of RFI hots spots like a tingle of RF on the
base of the key or what ever. 

This is just interesting.  Every one has some type of a mis match on their 
system of one type or another.  It has haunted me time and time again over the
