Reflection Calculator

This calculator will take as input either reflection coefficient magnitude, VSWR, Return Loss, or impedance magnitude, and calculate the other parameters. For impedance calculation it calculates what real load will give the same reflection coefficient magnitude. Obviously there will be several complex impedances that will give the same reflection coefficient magnitude. There will also be two real impedances that will give the same reflection coefficient magnitude. Both will be calculated unless an impedance magnitude is entered, or a negative reflection coefficient is entered as input.

This script converts all inputs first into reflection coefficient magnitude, then calculates the outputs using reflection coefficient magnitude.
