The MFJ 259 has measures many functions.
It measures just about all transmission line equation parameters and the
alterations caused by loads - antennas.
Here's its parameter list and how to move to them.
In normal mode you have the starting parameters:
Impedance Frequency, R, X SWR
Press mode and the screen displays
For each additional mode tap of the mode switch it measures
and back to R,X,SWR,f.
Simultaneously press the mode and gate switches for a few seconds.
This enters you into the Advanced Mode.
Each tap of the mode switch offers:
Return Loss Coefficient
Distance to fault
Resonance mode tune
Z Magnitude and angle
One finds this by pressing the buttons and see what occurs or
Goggle MFJ 259 manual and you'll find sources of the manual. I believe MFJ.com
