ARRL Contest Calendar

Average PEP power foldback video   Peak power meter and SWR caused transmitter power reduction. The first part of video shows two power meters indicating average power output from an HF transmitter. Then one meter is switched to indicate peak power. The second part demonstrates the same transmitter at 50 watts with a low SWR. A tuner is adjusted to cause an increase in SWR which can be seen on the crossed needle power meter. As the SWR approaches and exceeds 2:1 the transmitter senses the higher SWR and begins to reduce output power to protect the amplifier circuitry.

Band Conditions Real time conditions based on an a new ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry" which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.
