  1. Let me add a thought. In the absence of any other circuit elements, reflected power is absorbed by the real part of the source impedance so getting the reflections down is a plus. If you can insert what we call an antenna tuner somewhere in the line, you can cancel out the reactive component and match the resistive component to the source impedance so the source - your transmitter - thinks it is driving the correct impedance. The VSWR on the line is the same, so VSWR by itself is irrelevant except for a bit higher line losses.
