S Meter For Communications Receivers Circuit

Posted on May 29, 2012

Because many amateur receivers are fitted with an S meter that functions far from logarithmically, the proposed circuit should be a welcome extension of such receivers. Although ICs such as the CA3089 or the CA3189 are not in common use anymore, they serve a useful purpose in the meter circuit, because, apart from a symmetric limiter, a coincidence detector, and an AFC amplifier, they contain a very good logarithmic amplifier-detector.

As is seen, the circuit is fairly simple, but remember that these ICs operate up to about 30 MHz; the wiring of the meter and its connections in the receiver should be kept as short as possible.
