Certainly not, but I'm pretty sure that isn't how the SteppIR works
anyway. I don't own a SteppIR, but as I understand it from reading
the information on their website, the SteppIR default settings were
chosen for what Fluid Motion felt gave optimum performance with
reasonable match. The controller does not seek minimum SWR in normal
You can, of course, homebrew your own settings for whatever you want ...
lowest SWR, peak forward response, better F/B, etc.
