Re: Antuino support group opened -- early antuino question
The Antuino looks like a useful tool, well packaged.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I plan to get one.
But it won't be a replacement for your MFJ power meter and SWR meter.
As Farhan pointed out, it would be very inconvenient to keep the Antuino tuned into
the frequency of the transmitter, the Antuino only sees one frequency at a time where
the MFJ is broadband. And while the Antuino can measure the SWR of your antenna,
I don't think it can measure the SWR of an antenna while the transmitter is connected.
It could be used to measure the power coming out of a transmitter if you have
an appropriate resistive attenuator between the transmitter and the Antuino.
A small wire antenna on the Antuino might be used instead of the attenuator, but
the signal level seen by the Antuino will then vary with frequency and distance and
where your cat happens to be sitting.
Be very careful if using the Antuino around a transmitter, it would be easy
to feed it too much power and blow it out.
