Sifting PhilB’s lessons through my “stuck in my ways” brain, I realized how I’ve been missing the point about RF, and returned to the task of matching the AMT5000 into my home-brew window frame antenna, intended to be a compromise between an indoor and outdoor antenna.
Using the guidelines carefully described in the Manual and on entries here at part.15.us, the multi-meter inched the way to 378mW into the window array!
Before I correct for proper output power I’m going to tidy up and take a little drive because now I can see how different things are at 1550kHz compared to the AMT3000, which, really, was doing alright… just maybe shy a few feet in all directions.
I’ve already gotten double my money’s worth and am still thrilled over this new transmitter.
