Sorry Jim, but I am not arguing. I fully agree with what you said and I
understand about cable loss.

I had unintentionally thought that the other Jim had posted what you had and
mixed the two in my last post.

My whole point that I was making is that swr does not change at different
points on the line as impedance does when there is a mismatch, except for
losses in the line, as I said in my very first post on the subject.
