Portuguese term or phrase: Nao deve exceder 5 para 1
Medir a onda estacionaria (VSWR) das linhas de transmissao. Nao deve exceder 5 para 1.
Is this "should not exceed 5 for each one"?
Is it really this straightforward or am I missing something?
This is an aviation text.

must not exceed 5 to 1

"must" probably better than "should"

Text seems clear to me on the face of it but I would defer to someone who knows the field.

See the refs below, where a number of elements, including VSWR, are expressed as ratios:



The P-1 computes V.S.W.R. whenever RF is present on a given channel. The formula used is: (...)
An ideal situation would be one where there is some forward voltage and zero reflected volts. In this case, the V.S.W.R. would equal 1.0:1 (FORWARD+0/FORWARD-0). 1.0:1 is therefore the theoretical minimum V.S.W.R. obtainable. In practice, V.S.W.R. values as low as 1.1:1 are difficult to obtain. Note that a V.S.W.R. of 1.9:1 represents about 10% reflected power.

The only problem is that the left hand part is always a number with a decimal; I don't know if that's significant.
