This book helped me quite a bit in understanding the measurement setups and methodology for the amateur radio station tests I am interested in performing.
These tests include:
- CW testing (waveform risetime)
- SSB testing
- PEP measurement
- Transmit power overshoot
- Transmit key to RF output timing, and Transmit un-key to RF output timing
- Transmit Two-tone test with FFT
The book offers an excellent treatment of the capabilities and features that are available in all the various types of oscilloscopes that are available on the market. These include the traditional analog oscilloscopes, digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO), as well as the newer portable oscilloscopes (which plug into a PC or Tablet), and also software oscilloscopes (which use the soundcard of a PC to perform the A/D conversion).
After reading this book, I had enough knowledge to select a nice 200 MHz DSO oscilloscope, for a reasonable price, which will more than serve my needs. It also helped me to select the RF detectors and RF samplers which I will need to measure high power RF signals in my amateur radio station. Overall, this is a great book, which I highly recommend.
I was hoping for information on using them in the hobby.
I already have my scopes, so it wasn't money well spent by me
