KAT500 "Bypass SWR"?

Brian F. Wruble-2
My KAT500 utility program shows the tuned VSWR, generally a low number, and it also shows "Bypass SWR". Is that a reading of the feed line SWR without the tuner in the circuit?

Yes, that's the SWR measured with the ATU in bypass.  That's the first
setting we try in a "full search tune".

From KAT500 Utility Help for the Operate page:

Bypass VSWR

The VSWR measured when the ATU was last in "bypass", an estimate of the
antenna's "untuned" VSWR without any ATU inductors or capacitors.
