mram that sounds pretty cool. my scope is an hp54600B which is rather large and heavy. its a great scope but it is not very convenient to use for testing field strength. 🙁
today i went out to my local electronics shop and picked up a 50uA ammeter to put together basic field strength meter from this site: http://www.utaharc.org/rptr/wdr_fsm1.html
i threw it together on a breadboard and used a 3ft length of wire as an antenna. i placed the whole thing about 6feet from my amt3000 and it seemed to work okay. i had to turn the sensitivity all the way up and even then the meter peaked around 5uA but it was definitely working. pretty exciting stuff. 😀
i’ll post a photo once i have a nice enclosure to put the whole thing in.
