|Would it be correct to say: An RST is a report about the quality and strength of transmitted signal to receiving stations (QTH). This RST report is based upon the operator's personal judgment about the quality (understandability) and strength (power) of the transmitted signal at the receiving station's location (QTH).
Now if S-meters come into play for RST reports are we assuming they calibrated for RST reports or maybe we don't care if the S-meter is calibrated?

|With my FCC Amateur License Renewal package from ARRL VEC (and thanks for the package) came a document titled "Additional Information for Amateurs Completing Form 605", basic subject: Sign an RF Safety Certification.
My questions are:
1) Is the information about RF Safety provided with the FCC Amateur License Renewal package any different than the safety information provided in ARRL's RF Exposure and You by Ed hare, W1RFI?
2) If the answer is no then very good, should the answer be yes there are differences then not so good and what are these differences?
3) What defines Amateur Licensee objective evidence of compliance to the FCC Radio Frequency Radiation Safety requirement? How do I prove compliance?

|I'm considering mounting a doublet type antenna on my garage and my neighbor has given me permission to use his garage given me a total length of 40+ feet. This means feeding a ladder line (or coax) out of the garage up to the roof and running most of the doublet type antenna lines some what parallel to each other. I would like to lay the antenna wiring on the garage roof without mounting off the roof. I'm considering using a commercial ladder line feed into an auto tuner and use coax from the turner to my FT-950. As of today I only use a100 watts but down the road I may wish to upgrade to something higher. I have been reading about doublet antennas to the point of information overload and I believe I can do this. The but part is I'm concerned about is what made happen to the garage roof when I transmit. Any suggestions would be appreciated.|
|MFJ-259B Accuracy Info Request||KG6SYX||on 15/1/13|
|I have a MFJ-259B SWR Analyzer and I would like to know the accuracy ranges. Spent good part of this afternoon checking the internet and ARRL sites and found some info but nothing about the specific MFJ-259B accuracy ranges for the different functions. Is this info available and if yes where???|
