RF decibel meter circuit ~ electronictheory. Return Loss Bridge for the Radio Amateur. A return loss bridge is a wideband resistive bridge network which can be used to verify the impedance of coaxial cables, antennas, tuning stubs, filters, etc.

Return Loss Bridge for the Radio Amateur

It works by comparing an "unknown" impedance to a "known" impedance, which is usually 50 ohms in radio work. A DC voltage signal is generated which corresponds to the level of impedance mismatch between the "known" and "unknown" impedances. Generally, the higher the DC voltage output, the worst the impedance mismatch is. Return loss bridges are ideal for checking antenna systems as they are simple to build and have a very large RF bandwidth. 30W Digital RF Wattmeter.

Background This watt meter project is very similar to my last wattmeter project.

30W Digital RF Wattmeter

The main reason I made a new project is becasue I needed a unit which could handle higher power than 1W. n2pk_ad8307_power_meter.pdf. Instrument Electronic. Nordic nRF24L01+ Example Code. As can be seen, it uses a PCB antenna.

Nordic nRF24L01+ Example Code

No need for an external one. The maximum distance is greater when using 250 kbps compared to 1 Mbps. The range depends on the "things" between the two Nordic devices. nRF24L01 Wireless Module with Arduino. Now we have a demo show how to use the Arduino controlling the nRF24L01 module , and you need two Arduino boards and two modules, one to transmit and the other receive.

nRF24L01 Wireless Module with Arduino

The connection of two part is the same but the different software. The nRF24L01 module is worked at 3V voltage level , so the Arduino 5V pins may destroy it , so we need to add some resister to protect the module – using the 10K and the 15K resister to reduce the voltage is a usual method. Connect the module pins to Arduino as below: Download the code below into the TX Arduino (transmit) — This code will drive the nRF24L01 module to send out data form 0×00 to 0xFF . 2.4G Wireless nRF24L01+ Module 2.4G Wireless nRF24L01 Module [WIR001] - $5.50 : iStore, Make Innovation Easier.

This module uses the newest 2.4GHz transceiver from Nordic Semiconductor, the nRF24L01+.This transceiver IC operates in the 2.4GHz band and has many new features!

This started by me needing approx. 1 KW of RF power on 144Mhz for EME use. I originally built a 2M amplifier using a 4cx1000K tube.

Meter allows to measure RF power of transmitters in dBm, Watts (nW, uW, mW and W range) as well as input voltage. USB RF Power Meter is based on popular AD8307 watt power meter IC and PIC18F2550 microcontroller. Simply connect it to a PC via USB port and measurement readings will be displayed on a computer using included USB RF Power Meter software. Software settings can be configured to use 10-50dBm attenuator and thus allowing to measure higher RF power.

Digital Wattmeter English mainpage Vis Dansk oversat side NEW SOFTWARE AVAILABLE 28 okt 2008 The input board is a small PCB mounted directly on the connector. The main CPU board is mounted directly on the display. Updated 3. ARDUINO PROJECTS. This sketch will readout RF power and SWR from any SWR bridge (for example 'monimatch' type). As this 'monimatch' type of bridge is frequency dependant, the meter must be calibrated for every band. Because my primary interest was for VHF/UHF/SHF, I have foreseen positions for 6m, 4m, 2m, 70 cm, 23cm and 13cm bands - but you can use the ARDUINO readout on HF as well. If you intend to build a HF or VHF bridge yourself, there are several designs available on the web : I recommend to take a look at the information here, here , here and there !

In a previous post I looked at how the popular "Tandem-Match" Directional Coupler worked. Recall from that analysis:I analyzed the Tandem-Match coupler in terms of "lumped" circuit elements, not distributed elements.The coupler works by taking a sample of the voltage across the transmission line at a single point and a sample of the current through that point.

The Tandem-Match Coupler creates both of these samples with transformers.The voltage at the "Forward Port" (that we measure on our meter) is calculated by adding the current and voltage samples.The voltage at the "Reflected Port" is calculated by subtracting the current and voltage samples.The voltage at the "Reflected Port" is 0 when the load is a real resistance equal to the value of the resistors terminating the measurement ports (Forward and Reflected Ports). I'll analyze the original design as well as some of the variants it inspired. 302C-3%20%283rd%20ed-%2001-15-60%29.pdf. My first attempt to make a directional coupler turned out OK but not brilliant. The goal was to be able to sample forward and reflected power using a simple stand-alone box.

I think I can call this a success through 6M. 2M it starts to fall apart and frequencies above 2M are simply relative. ALL THINGS RADIO @ NØFP. Rolling your own furnace controller.

Luckily, [Dilshan] sent in a really neat 8-channel signal injector that is amazingly simple to build and comes with a great front end for editing patterns from your computer.

The hardware portion of the build is kept to a minimum with a PIC18F chip, USB socket, and header pins as the only major components. This board serves as the hardware output for the Kidogo software. This software provides a very nice interface to generate 5 volt logic signals on eight separate channels that will immensely help exploring your digital world.
