The NoGaWaTT was featured in an issue of the NJQRP "Homebrewer".
This is a QRP watt meter and swr meter kit based on the "Stockton" design found in the 1996 ARRL Handbook pp 22.36.
The kit includes 2 analog meters (forward and reverse), pc board and parts and instructions to complete the kit including a dummy load. Users supply the enclosure and connectors. The power out meter is used for 10 watts maximum. The meter labels are included and were calibrated with a scope.
No batteries or external power are required to use this kit. The kit is Altoids compliant. Several club members have packaged the NoGaWaTT with their NoGa PiG (Power Indicator/Guard) and never go out without them.
NEW NOGA WATTMETER OFFERING
Because low cost analog type panel meters, in the quanity we need, are becoming more and more difficult to find, we have decided to offer a alternative wattmeter kit, without the meters, in addition to our standard wattmeter kit.
This will allow those of you who wish to purchase meter/s of a particular style, size, and quality you desire. Meters can be bought at most hamfests and various electronic parts outlets. Another good source of meters are old electronic equipment such as audio, cb, industrial, etc. that you find under the tables at hamfests, or at yard, and garage sales.
The meters we have been using in our kits have a full scale dc current rating of around 300 microamps. We would recommend meters in the 200 to 500 microamp range, although we have tested a 1 milliamp dc full scale reading meter at 6 watts full scale.
The meterless kit includes the printed circuit board, all components that are to be mounted on the board, and resistors to make a 8 watt, 50 ohm dummy load.
