Hi Peter,

I have two of them in my shack. Each gets one half of the room and they move around it slowly. I don't mind them because they keep the place clear of other bugs. I brought my wife in to show her and she suggested I burn down the shack. :lol:

My ZL-PLL configured as a signal source for testing the microwave gear in the field to ensure the antennas and receivers are working properly.

Preprogrammed spot frequencies on each microwave band.

Hi All,

This is a Warp corporation WAS-1 peak reading power meter. I guess it was made in the 70's or 80's. Never seen one before and can't find any info on the interwebby about it. Comes with a HF, VHF and UHF power sensor and is auto ranging 20W, 200W, 2000W. Perhaps not surprising, the previous owner has been through it with the magic screwdriver and there's a myriad of trimpots in the meter and the sensors. I have an idea of how I might go about calibration but it would be nice have an idea of how the meter has been put together so I can work out a starting point.

Does anyone have "any" documentation on this meter?

I just bought one of these Stealth microwave WiMAX amps off ebay.

They look brand new !! not a mark on them and no solder on the binding posts.

This will go nicely with my Minikits transverter.

20w out on 3.4Ghz :)

You must have bought yours at the same time as me Tim.

Mine arrived on Wednesday. Same thing, perfectly brands new. So some extra power on 3.4 here too!

LOL... great minds think alike ;)

Mine arrive Monday, and I've done a few quick tests on it and now I'm just setting up to do some proper testing and raph the results.

I have a funny feeling we purchased from the same eBay seller from Israel... as on Monday last week there were 3 available at this particular seller, which then went down to 2. I snagged the last two for myself and another ham here thinking he was out of stock, then he relisted more!
