A new item from Wavenode is the CS-1, an RF Sensor designed to provide coupling to an external oscilloscope. According to Alan Burroughs of Wavenode, the decision to release the new sensor was do to an increasing number of customer requests for this item.

I purchased the CS-1 specifically for monitoring/tuning PSK output, as well as other modes while using a Tektronix 465 oscilloscope. The insertion loss is very low, about 0.01%, and the sensor still provides high output signal for monitor devices that must have 1 Volt PP to operate properly. This unit may be ordered with standard SO 239, or N type connectors. Although a similar device could be built for a little more than the cost of a parts box, and connectors, I think the Wavenode CS-1 is a good value at the current retail price.
