The Potomac Industries FIM-71 was designed to measure VHF fields
Okay, not mentioning any names, but I purely seen someone who was referring to an FM pirate he located “I didn’t think of bringing the Potomac FIM41 field intensity meter along…..”
I seen another quote being made towards me over at The Virtual Engineer forum where I was told to get a true idea what my Ramsey FM100 was putting out I needed a piece of equipment called the FIM41. In fact a picture of the FIM41 was added to that topic for clarity of what the device looked like.
Now unless someone goofed and thought the Ramsey FM100 was an AM transmitter, I can understand that mistake, however, that other person who also participated in that topic knows what the FM100 is and mentioned the use of the FIM41 first and it went on from there.
What can I tell you? My field was electronics repair, not engineer. I used frequency counters, oscilloscopes, meters and signal generators. Repaired CB radios etc. but never needed a field intensity meter of that type. So I only know what those smarter then me teach me unfortunately and at 56 years old, I’m not about to go back and take a new course in electronics. Besides guys, I see no point in learning about an expensive piece of equipment like those units. And what? You need one for FM and a different one for AM? At those prices, it sounds like a down payment on a new home. Just kidding!
