    These notes refer back to the antenna experiments I was doing a year or so ago. (See the main thread on openLRS for the details.

    It turned out that the commercial/as supplied aerials actually work rather well and provide the best trade-off between performance and ease of use. Yagi aerials don't fit well  inside a submarine!

    An RF power meter was a useful tool to measure relative power. Tim S has given details for a commercial meter on the main openLRS thread but I looked around for a cheaper alternative. And here one is - Thank you eBay!

    The board is connected to a rubber ducky aerial and a 12v supply. I connected the output to a Digital Voltmeter on a 2v range. Very little soldering required.

    The unit puts out 0.5v which rises to 0.6 to 0.7 volts on a signal. It seems to work well/repeatedly and avoids having to wander around town looking at your transmitter!
