Unlike other panadapters, the P3 TX Monitor option provides clear transmitted waveforms in multiple views.
Use with any TransceiverLike the P3 itself, the transmit monitor can be used with any transceiver. The sensor unit detects the presence of RF power and switches to the transmit display you have selected without any other control signals from the transmitter. If desired you can disable the modulation envelope monitoring and still monitor the RF power and SWR on the P3. Sensors are available covering the following frequencies and power levels:
|Please specify one coupler at purchase||Description|
DCHF-200 1.8-54 MHz, 0.1- 200W
|Select this coupler if to monitor the HF bands, up through 6 Meters at up to 200 watts. If you do not have a linear amplifier, this is the optimal choice. Accuracy is good down to about 2.0 watts.|
DCHF-2000 1.8-54 MHz, 1- 2000W
|Select this coupler if you have a linear amplifier over 200 watts for the HF bands, up through 6 Meters.|
DCV/U-200 144-450 MHz, .1- 200W
|Select this coupler if you will be transmitting in the 2 Meter through 440 Mhz regions at up to 200 watts.|
A: Yes. Any P3 can have the P3TXMON option installed at any time. No modifications are needed to circuits or the cabinet to do so, too. The Transmit Monitor is a single board that plugs into the existing I/O board inside the P3. Only a few basic hand tools are needed to perform the installation. No soldering or wiring is required.
A: Yes. The P3TXMON option can be installed separately from the P3SVGA option and at any time.
