Pacific Measurements and/or Wavetek 1038 Swept Measurement System Info

Spectrum Analysis Upgrade -

I've been busy with travel though a little pickin of worthy free items as well as great deals on electronics and RF engineering related systems with the latest acquisition opening up the capabilities of spectrum analysis up to 110GHz potentially and 18.5GHz with the detectors I have already.  Still lots of reading and some writing also regarding DEW's, electronics and RF engineering.

I've been trying to find information regarding the operation of the 1038-N10, -NS20 and -NS201 devices.  I've been able to find info on the mainframes and H/V systems.

Started a Facebook group regarding:

...as well as updated the Tekwiki wiki which didn't have much at all initially:

Found a free Brother MFC9970CDW Color Laserjet that the engineering office lady said needs the fuser replaced and otherwise works great. The printout noted the laser is also at 4% lik…

Depressing Negative Signals like Pulsed DC or Modulation Effects from Gang Stalkers Remote Signals Operations?

Fluke 8840A Startup - Why does the mV & V readings not stabilize to zero with the terminals not shorted and when tested later in the mV range when shorted still +/- 00.0020 when there are no ERROR during calibration?

Signal Hunters Episode 1 Taking spectrum analysis to new heights! The MS2760A is the latest release in the Ultra-portable family of USB driven instruments - it can perform spectrum measurements from 9kHz to 110GHz in the industries smallest and lightest form factor. To test the versatility of this new class of instrumentation Signal Hunters’ Luke and Becca decided to see if they could find a hidden microwave signal by mounting the new MS2760A on a commercial drone – watch the video to see the results and see how the Anritsu Spectrum Master MS2760A ultraportable spectrum analyzer with best in class sweep speed, dynamic range, and continuous frequency coverage up to 110 GHz performs.

Reads like is about a ~$60K investment to own... however, leasing is the way to get around the high expense.

Electro-osmosis: Electrophysiological implications?

Image
Here is a brief refresher on electrophysiology by body part  and  not so much  cell, cell cluster and/or tissues details.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrophysiology#Electrographic_modalities_by_body_part


Now consider this  electro-osmosis effect  demonstrated in the video below  with a potential and current measured.  
Then consider later observations regarding the measurements.
That is a low current and ultimately wattage capability  to cause effect from what I observe. 

Interesting eh?

Installing GNU Radio Companion (GRC) on Windows 7 Pro and other Windows OS's

Here is a great reference that I will use when I get to updating the RTL-SDR Procedure with new SDR and application information... especially regarding GRC... for when installing GRC on Windows OS computers:

In regards to ELF-ULF-VLF work (basically in the sound card range) with or without mixing to upconvert or downconvert... here are some software application references I've found really helpful:

I've been using Visual Analyzer which seems like a great all in one application.



This application was recommended and isn't freeware... though may be work the investment:

Reference regarding what could be the systems to consider detecting even if not in the disclosed frequency ranges:

Radio Direction Finding (Radio Telescope) Dish/Trough Project Update

Image
I just realized I went through the month of November without a Blog. 

https://www.facebook.com/james.analytic/posts/2821148457946938

I wound up making the two Facebook posts that are noted in the link above regarding, the what will ultimately be, the Passive Synthetic Aperture Radio Telescope Project that once all four are complete will become a Passive Synthetic Aperture Phased Array Radio Telescope or Radio Direction Finding or RADAR System.

Thanks to a gentleman on Craigslist who offered a free mirror... I am going to start moving forward on the IR-Vis-UV range of the project based on the performance of the mirror glass and reflective backing.  I think the glass will be more the limiting factor.  Praying for knowledge and wisdom for him and his staff so he heals up and gets better and at the least can maintain better health.

I'm excited for sure with the progress, albeit slow... of the different related projects!
