Another RF Field Strength Meter

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

This circuit is another radio frequency (rf) field strength meter, similar with our previous field strength meter circuit, but with lower supply voltage (only a single cell 1. 5V battery). Here is the schematic diagram of this rf strength meter circuit: To use, turn on transmitter and meter; adjust C1 for peak reading. Turn off transmitter and adju

st R1 for a perfect zero reading on the meter. Turn on transmitter (with no audio modulation) and go to your monitor point(s) and take readings. Your monitor point(s) should be many meters/yards away from your antenna, but obviously must be where the signal is still strong enough to register on your instrument. After taking a set of readings, you can experiment with your antenna or transmitter system, then take another set of readings and determine whether your signal strength was increased or diminished. Keep your readings in your engineering logbook. Make note of whether it`s been dry or rainy in recent days; moist soil might give slightly better propagation.
