Re: Power meter accuracy

dekle <dekle@...>
 

 

Hi Bruce,

The accuracy specification in the WM-1 manual states that the accuracy is "5% of full scale and 8% worst case". (Makes you wonder why they just don't just say 8 % ???)

So on the 20 w scale that is +/- 1 watt (using the 5% accuracy figure).

So, if you read 3 watts on the WM-1, it could still be within specification for an actual power anywhere between 2 to 4 watts.

I read their manual and it has some really interesting stuff in it and there is a big discussion of accuracy. If I use a power meter, I just use it for relative readings.

Oscilloscopes are getting pretty cheap now. If I want more accuracy, I like to look at the waveform across a dummy load and do the math to calculate the power.

Finally, if the power indicator on the Argo is exactly between '3' and '5', that may not be '4' due to the non-linearity of the meter. Plus, the Argo wattmeter also has an accuracy tolerance, I'm sure.

You can't win.

"I did a bit of "domestic archaeology" in the attic this afternoon and
found a long-forgotten Autek Research WM1 SWR/PWR meter. Managed to even
find the matching wall-wart !! Put it in-line with the TenTec Argo 556
and noted a difference in power reading between the Argo and WM1. The
meter in the Argo shows 4 watts (dead center between the "3" and "5"
points on the front panel meter) and the WM1 shows exactly 3 watts on
the 0-20 scale.

So, which one is closer to the truth? In the big picture, it doesn't
really matter but I'm enough of a radio nerd to want to know closer than
"3-4 watts". Is there a way to determine which reading is accurate? Can
the WM1 meter cause that much power "loss"? I do not have any test
equipment here so it may be a moot point. Your comments welcome. Thanks
in advance."

Re: Power meter accuracy

John Lonigro
 

Cecil has probably given you the best advice.  However, I suspect you'll then have 3 power values and will begin to wonder about the accuracy of the RF probe.  Unless there is a systemic error involved, you can either average all three readings or simply throw out the high and low ones.  Or if you are really lucky and two of the readings are close to each other, throw out the third one, average the two, and call it good. 

I would suggest you buy the highly accurate KD1JV power and SWR meter, but I see that kit is retired (as am I).

Whatever the final result, that radio would be legal in the upcoming Second Sunday Sprint - official announcement coming shortly.

peak you will need to convert it to RMS voltage before calculating the power.

That will verify which meter is closer.

Hey Roy, I am a retired State Parole Officer and I was always excused from Jury Duty. I wonder why no one ever thought about the Jury Challenges. 

But to this day, after being retired for 14 years,  I can not get on a jury, civil or criminal. I have really wanted to get on a criminal jury just to see how it works. I also would be fair as I would want the prosecution to PROVE their case.

Ok back to calling CQ on 7.122 MHz.

Tom,
Before I retired from a PD in Wyandotte County, KS, they always allowed any
person with any police/sheriff/jailer/firefighter/clerk job to be excused from all jury duty,
even civil cases that had nothing to do with broken laws. Later they changed
it because the realized that every excused cop equaled a free "strike" for
the defense. As you know, others might not, each lawyer is allowed to strike
a certain number of jury candidates to form a jury that is more favorable to the
specific lawyer involved. If cops are excused before the "striking"
begins, that is seen as giving extra advantage to defense attorneys. Actually
cops often see details in the defense case as well, so if the person on trial
is not a repeat offender the cop in a big city may not know them anyway.

Once my wife (KB0DUK, SK) was called. She was a KU cop. Another county
deputy was called and a KCK city cop. They were all going in together to get 
excused when my wife began talking about how we had discussed the imbalance
caused by excusing cops and firefighters. All three decided to sit it out, in uniform,
and the defense counsel began howling. The judge noted that they were free to
strike all three but he was not going to do it.

Re: RMRC net NC in CRT

I was called several times for jury duty and then preliminarily selected.  The next step was for all those in the latter category, to face a questioning from either, or both, the defense attorneys and the prosecutor.  If any of them didn't like an answer given to one of their questions, then, without any explanation from them, the prospective juror would be obliged to quit.

A standard question was if one had ever served as a juror previously.  Every time I replied that I had served on military court martial boards, it turned out to be a rapid exit for me from the courthouse.  No defense attorney wanted me as a juror. 

By now this Colonel Hard-Ass has reached the age at which one is no longer invited to serve; probably the point in NJ at which they figure one automatically becomes senile.

If one of the other members of the net want to call it.. please do.. and send a list of the checkins to me please.
That would be very very good. 
Sorry for the short notice.. but they must be in a hurry,.. this just showed up. 
Or they really want to hang 'em.

Re: 7122 crystals

Hello Sam, It is a snow day here today.....Snow day Tuesday also.....It is giving me time to lay out a transmitter circuit board for 40 meters.....10 watts out with a power control.....In about a week or so, I am going to put up a shortened 40 meter dipole and get in some 7122 receive time.....I have bad propagated in RF noise, but, I am working on sound card audio filtering.....Through the noise, I have heard 31 countries, 200+ stations and 3 continents on PSK-31 on 20 meters in the last 2 months.....This tells me that narrowing up the audio will do the trick.....

For circuit board layout purposes, I would prefer the HC-49 case style, if I may.....

My address is Gary Rheuark
P.O. BOX 591
Gainesville MO 65655-0591

In return for this favor, I will extend my help and company to a brand new KF5 just across the State line down in Arkansas.....He doesn't have an antenna up yet due to our bad weather.....It may be that when I go to Arkansas to meet him over pizza, we may run out to his place and put up a quick and dirty dipole stuck up in the trees.....

Speaking about the State line, I am waiting on my last circuit boards for a pair of 10 GHZ transceivers, full duplex.....10 Milliwatts power output.....We have a lot of 10 mile,
20 mile and 45 mile line of sight hilltops around here with nice drive-ups and parking.....I will help the new KF5 get the 1000 Mile per Watt Award as soon as the weather gets back above freezing.....

If you are a county hunter, I am in Ozark County MO that has a ham population of 73 hams and as I remember, with the bulk of them on 2 meter FM and 432 FM.....I only know of 2 hams on HF and not on 40 meters, besides me.....

I have designed and built my own 1296 MHZ rig and I am working on a design for 2304 MHZ transverter.....I am trying to get Parts per Billion frequency stability on both bands and a total cost of $50.00 including a DIY antenna tripod using a freebie 18" dish.....The last power up on 2304 yielded a just barely detectable drift.....Almost not detectable.....Using an open circuit board exposed to room temperature.....

To keep my sanity with the 2304 MHZ transverter, I am programming the microprocessor for frequency steps of 100 KHZ.....Transmit on both bands is independent of any
2 meter transmit input as the transmit frequency is generated directly and the receiver is there only for an exact frequency receive on both bands.....

Well okay Sam, I appreciate the offer of a crystal and if there is anyway of repaying you for the favor, please tell me.....Thank you.....Gary...K5QNM.

Re: 7122 crystals

Hello Johnny,

I have heard that question asked many times on various reflectors. I use the "
real FT-243s and FT-243's with a hc-49 inside, with the following
transmitters and have never had a problem or chirp as a crystal heated:

6V6 oscillator ( clone similar to the AC-1 )
6T9 " The L'il Giant ( QST/ARRL Handbook )
AT-1 Heathkit ( 6AG7/6L6 - I think it is a 6AG7 )
WRL Globe Chief 90A 6AG7/two 807's
Two different DX-20 Heath-kits ( 6CL6/6BQ6 ? )

Also, I have a Paraset complete set I got from Fair Radio and then a second
back-up Paraset transmitter. Let me get it hooked up and let's try for a
Paraset to Paraset QSO?

If the other hc-49 goes unclaimed or, if I can find another one, I will put it
inside a FT-243 case for you and send it free ( or send it as it is - I can
only use so many 7122 xtals! hi. Sometimes you have to use a Dremmel took to
enlarge the top of the inside of the FT-243 case to get a fit.

Hello Gary,

I have two FT-243 7122 crystals ( hc-49 inside FT-243 shells ) that I use.
Plus I have at least two other hc-49 7122 crystals ( wire leads & aluminum
case ). If you want one of the hc-49's, let me know your address and it will
be in the mail, possible the same day. The only cost will be a 7122 QSO.

73,

Re: New MagicBox Run

NS40 and SAVXO – work a treat with my Magic Box and DX-394.

Hi guys, Gotta have me one of these magic boxes.  Now I can hook up a really nice DX-302 that works like a million bucks.
 
But first, I need a transmitter.  Much preferred over a transceiver.
 
Can any one suggest a cw transmitter, maybe just 40 meters, VFO,  QRP - you know, all the good stuff?
 
Stalked the aisles of the Richmond (VA) Frostfest yesterday to no avail.
 
Can't find anything in kit form on the internet.
 
Don't know where to look for something (vintage) that would play nice through the magic box.
 
Help?
 
72,
 
Tom
