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.
