Friday night at the Dayton DX Dinner I won in a drawing this wonderful antenna analyzer from Comet, the CAA-500. It features a measurement range of 1.8 to 500 Mhz and displays SWR and impedance. It is powered with five AA batteries or an external 8 to 16 volt DC supply can be used.
Thanks Comet and SouthWest Ohio DX Association! This will really come in handy considering I’m in a new QTH and I’m in the process of putting up antennas and reassembling the radio artisan shack. I couldn’t have asked for a more useful measurement tool.
(I am back home and I have several reports from Dayton to post in the next few days. Stay on frequency…)
