The Midland SWR Meter is a standing wave ratio radio meter used to improve the antenna performance of Midland SWR radios. This meter measures the standing wave ratio of the transmission line and indicates whether there is a degree of variation between the transmission line and the radio antenna. In other words, it helps determine if there is interference with the radio signal getting to the radio receiver so that any interference issues may be addressed to improve signal strength.
