Mini VSWR indicator as reviewed by QST Sept 19

Steve Ford WB8IMY reviews the mini SWR indicator in this months QST. I do wonder when he purchased it, because they are at least $10 cheaper now on ebay?



What could be a handy little tool, but it pays to do your homework and research across all selling platforms before you open your wallet.

The Antuino from HF Signals


HF Signals the small company in India headed by VU2ESE, that has recently brought us lots of fun with the BITX40 and the uBITX HF radio kits, has now done it again with the launch of the Antuino.

His headline for the device is: A compact Radio Lab for Antennas and Radio circuits.








I would like to think of it as a mini Radio Test Set that can help us understand what is going on up the antenna, as well as being a useful tool to help analyse what is happening within the radio or what problems exist within the RF signal it outputs. The plus of course it is hackable, so anyone can join in the fun and improve it with addons or make it's firmware better.

At $99 this is sure going to be another useful instrument to any Amateur's test equipment toolbox.

Still here!

Just a quicky from me to thank you all for your recent  best wishes you sent, some that reached me via email. The same problems still exist, but I am still around, and the Blog maybe quiet while I tackle the stranglehold, but I will be writing some more in the weeks or months to come or even later today, it will not become a dead ended Blog.



All the best to you all!
