Well, I've been building my station now for a while (as "play funds" allow) and think I have a decent set-up.
My transceiver is a TS-940S, Al-80B linear, AT-2500 Tuner (in repair process). Backup is my TS-530S and MFJ-993B.
In consideration for other operators, I want to set-up a station monitor so that I can see what I'm putting out and not contaminate the band with needless splatter, noise etc.
I have a Tektronix 2336 100Mhz scope from the days when I was playing with CB and TV repairs, I believe this should do ok.
I'm also toying with the idea of a spectrum analyzer....
All probably complete overkill? but I want to make sure I'm "true and clean".....
I've found two companies that offer interfaces: CleanRF (www.cleanrf.com
) and PreciseRf (www.preciserf.com
) both offering similar products.
The other alternative was to software/pc based by Virtins Technology (www.virtins.com
), this would be scope/analyzer in one package.
What else is out there...what are you using and works effectively...?
Any comments and or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
