The MFJ-834. Coax In-Line Calibrated RF Ammeter. Connect the MFJ-834 Coax In-Line RF Ammeter between your antenna and tuner/ transmitter/amplifier and measure antenna feed line current in 3 calibrated ranges. Use it . . . for tuning your antenna tuner/ transmitter/amplifier for maximum radiated power ? for determining antenna feed point impedance? for comparing antennas and tuners ? for trouble shooting . . . and for checking for changes. Tuning for maximum feed line current for any given antenna always gives maximum radiated power!
Any adjustment -- transceiver or amplifier tuning/loading controls, antenna tuner settings, whatever -- that increases feedline current improves power transfer and gives you a stronger radiated signal.
Minimum SWR does not always mean maximum radiated power -- your tuner or lossy coax may be dissipating power -- and you may not get peak output power even if your tuner or amplifier is properly tuned.
Use the MFJ-834 to determine best antenna tuner settings and to compare various tuners.
Calculate your antenna feedpoint impedance by dividing your applied power by the square of the feedpoint current.
Your antenna can change when you apply power -- insulators break down, traps heat up, capacitors leak -- and your feedpoint impedance may be drastically different from your SWR Analyzer measurements.
MFJ RF ammeters are rugged, read accurately over 1-30MHz in three linear ranges (.3, 1, 3 Amps) and barely perturb the antenna.
