And if you have an open or short circuit, VSWR is infinite, and so are
the forward and reverse power! In real life, Tx power goes somewhere -
into tuner and transmission line resistance - and VSWR is finite.

(2) A meter between the tuner and the antenna will indicate
Forward power = 133.33 watts;
Reverse power = 33.33 watts;
% refl. power = 25 %;
VSWR = 3:1; and
the _net_ forward power is 133.33 - 33.33 = 100 watts.
Note that the forward power exceeds the power output
from the transmitter because the 33.33 watts of reverse
power returning to the tuner is reflected from the tuner
back toward the antenna.
