SWR Sweep

The signature series radio hardware can already measure SWR.  Why not create a software routine that sweeps an antenna (in BYP) and plots the SWR on the pan adapter.  It would be the great new radio feature, possible only with a SDR.

Great idea if you don't mind more "sweepers" on the bands.  (I mean, not to sound like a curmudgeon or anything!)

exactly what you can get with a VNA, plus LOTS more...
 e.g. you can see how R and X vary with frequency also..
