After I decided to make a waveguide coupler to see what results I may achieve, I have disassembled one and looked at its construction. Then I made my own coupler.

My old HP 3577A box does not allow for proper full 2-port calibration. So I investigated a bit in this field.

I always wanted a HP 8970B noise figure meter to measure the noise figure of some amplifiers etc. However, these usually go for stiff prices, but recently I found an unit on eBay which was quite cheap.

I tested my GPSDO by comparing it with my Oscilloquartz STAR4.

As I said, after I made my own waveguide termination, I wanted to make a directional coupler in waveguide. Here is my progress.

I want to do a few experiments with waveguides, this time I try to make a termination. Later I will try to make a directional coupler, so with the aid of the termination I can calibrate the directional coupler and do some measurements at higher frequencies.

I got a new 4262A LCR meter from eBay. It was sold ‘as is’ because it had a defect…

I was working quite a while on my GPSDO project. This post is still work in progress and I will provide some updates from time to time 😉

When I wanted to build a diplexer, I read that this can be done by using a highpass anda lowpass filter. But what if someone wants to make a multiplexer, or if one wants to use bandpass filters?
