Hey OM{en/ladies/et al}

Just got ROYALLY screwed on eBAY. Ordered a Palomar RX-100 Noise Bridge, from POLCAT838.

NO knobs/furniture and NO connector for 9v batt. Just FOUND-OUT abt SmartBridge sftwr which interfaces the bridge with a computer.

IF any1 has ANY resources vis-a-vis the sftwr and/or knobs, MY New Year's wish is to hear/read from u.

THX and ALL of u r ordered to have a Cool Yule & a Frantic 1st!

73/88,

Phil, WF3W

Phil - I have a Palomar RX-100 noise bridge, but had never heard of the Smartbridge software.  I did some quick research and see that the software didn't provide any kind of interface to the device, but rather used device readings you view when using the device at the end of the transmission line to do calculations that tell you what the impedance values must be at the antenna.  I looked around but it appears the software isn't available for download anywhere.  It's listed at the Palomar site, but not available for download.

Many of us used the RX-100 to generate broadband noise to aid in aligning the filters in the Elecraft K2.

Say Floyd,

THX for the info! I saw the sftwr on PALOMAR and boy was I miffed : O)

Ur research, obviously, beats MEDLINE. Funny but I just got a book/sftwr duo - after paying AGN for the CD - by Cowan. It has EVERY — Im sure after having all Orr & Cowan's books — formulas applicable to feedlines. It is in XCEL and will NOT work with OPEN OFFICE! Hams r SOOOO clever...??

I bought a TEK-TENNA Model 40 that REFUSES to function {as an ant}. I have AEA's 121 HF Analyst AND Autek's HF Analyst. I figured what a GREAT reason, OK, xcuse, for buying the LAST piece of diagnostic gear I'll need - til 2018 anyway.

I entreat u to have a COOL YULE and FRANTIC 1st!!!!
