How accurate is the Flex 6K metering expected to be? Isn't it a better idea to use something like the N8LP LP-100A that has been calibrated to NIST standards? And even so, that still leaves a few percent (maybe 5-10%) uncertainty.
From what I understand, accurate power measurements are a real challenge. When the SWR is very low, around 1:1 there is very little reflected power to measure. And when it is very high (> 9:1) almost all the power is reflected, and the difference between forward and reflected becomes difficult to measure. (Power is not really reflected, voltages and currents are reflected. Power is dissipated, mainly in the load, even under high SWR conditions.) The LP-100A craps out around >9:1.
