Nice home brew project, especially for QRP enthusiasts. I appreciate how you reused salvaged parts in this test gear. I would imagine a T50-6 would be a good toroid for the sense transformer.

Hi OM Claude,

The toroid's (identity unknown) size is OD 20mm / ID 12.5mm / Ht 12.5mm.

Many thanks for the compliment.

Nandu:  OK, I give up..... let me step in it.....

An RF millimeter I understand.  But, what the hell is a "steampunk?"

nanda kumar s:
Hi OM Allen,

Broadly, steampunk is a culture based on an imaginary visualization of the future by a person  in the ‘steam age’ (when steam engines ruled).

For us in ham radio, homebrewing equipment for today using vintage technology / vintage parts is steampunk.  Years ago steampunk became the rule when the only source of cheap parts for us was WWII surplus.

I consider this RF Milliammeter steampunk because of its looks and construction. If you could spare the time, you may go through my blog and decide which of my other projects are also steampunk!
