 Amateur Radio Frequency Measurements:


0-500MHZ LM3914 RF Power Meter:

PM1A Rev1212:

RF meter and Wide Dynamic Range Field Strength Meter

Last version of PM1 is here.....


Although, the other project, PM3 and FC3 are hot favorite among radio amateurs for RF Measurement, I wanted something smaller & more economical for measurement of RF Signals accurately using an LED Driver LM3914 and Log amplifier AD8307.

In this project a quality Double Sided PTH Board is used measuring 65cm x 110mm in size powered by a 9V battery.

Bargraph LEDs (10) are used in this project which may be mounted on either side of the PCB to facilitate mounting of this project in a user preferred custom case.

AD8307 from Analog Devices is used (SO8 Package) for basic RF measurement up to 500MHZ from -70dbm to +10dbm. To increase measurement range, a 20db switched attenuator is available.

LEDs may be mounted on Component side or on the back of PCB. A small cutting on metal box cover is required.
