Hi Rik,

A nice drawing, remindes me to the early times of the internet and before ;-)

As Alan suggested, what about a single core working as a current transformer?

BTW ferrite cores, i have got my package a few minutes ago 100x 3C85 cores for VLF. The show can go on! See Looks like goodies ;-)

Hello Luis,


one way to change the range without opening meter is to use two 4/1 radio transformers:

- first transformer high side to the TX, and low side to one and of the meter

- second transformer low side to the other end of the meter and high side to the antenna

Drawback: the transformers will introduce some additional loss

Hi xyF
Yesterday I got a nice gift from a local friend, Pascual EA5JF :-)
Unfortunately the current range under 1A looks unusable 
Still not opened to have a look. Seems to use a thermocouple. Is there any chance to make it
more sensible and usable for <1A currents ?
