Re: Re: Return loss bridge (2.4 gHz ) report

I had thought that would be a great kit BUT, for $150 one can buy a good
(great?) commercial antenna with guaranteed results - no bridge required. I
could see the benefit if I were to knock out antennas for the band of
interest as a small business, but for a one off construction project... It
just didn't fit in my $500 new "mode" budget.
