This equation is not correct. Not according to my 2019 ARRL handbook.
Pete do you see what's going on here?

An equation is any expression with an equals sign, so your example is by definition an equation. Equations appear frequently in mathematics because mathematicians love to use equal signs. A formula is a set of instructions for creating a desired result.

This formula is either very very old or a screw ball way of going about it. It doesn't match anything in the ARRL book.
But it came with my new antenna turner.

It was as if something was missing. So I set it up according to the handbook, and it's working.
But I'm using a dipole. Maybe that was it because it wasn't accurate with anything on the
dial.
