Hello All


A comment on earlier mail by Paul G8AFC


So the purchase of the Chinese board was simply to give me some modicum  of microwave test gear that wasn’t going to cost the earth and didn’t weigh even more for when I am away from my shack here!


Sometime I see comments  ‘Just scan the filter’ , it will do for basic checks, etc


There are a pile of little ‘modules’, gadget’s less than £100 on ebay and the likes.    What would be handy/good is how do you use some of these boards to ‘scan a filter’ - use it to test xyz.


Just some sort of ‘use by example’ type guide to help those who have never used the higher end (read proper) Spectrum analyser or an HP xyz to do what they do.


With the lock down there will be free time to scribble some notes that may help others.
