Why Measure?
The basic goal of a wireless communication system is to transfer the maximum amount of RF energy to achieve coverage (Figure: Coverage Area). Wireless communication systems require good integration of all components from the ground to the antenna. Problems such as dented shielding, bad connectors, water ingress, or over‑torque will cause a mismatch and reflect power in a manner that reduces RF energy transfer.
