Paging System Simulcast Signal Monitoring & Telemetry System Build

Anything which can automate some of the process of testing (and, ideally, provide remote, real-time monitoring) is a huge help. Not […]

Installation of Female N-Type Connector on 1-5/8″ RFS Cellflex Cable

One of those jobs that takes 10 minutes to do, but a lot of time overall (and a lot of effort) moving tools and equipment around. Terminated this 550′ spool of RFS LCF158 corrugated coaxial feedline with an RFS NF-LCF158-D01 female N-type connector yesterday afternoon. While it was one of those fun projects, it was […]

Demo of Custom Built Arduino-Based RF Power and SWR Monitor

´╗┐This video is a demonstration showing the RF Power and VSWR Monitor & Alarm System I recently designed and built. The front panel and chassis used to be a Glenayre Power Monitor panel, but after being completely gutted, retrofitted, painted, etc., it is now a custom Arduino-based build. I finished creating and putting the front […]
