2. If I can't find this RF bird sampler (the best solution IMO)... then I'llIt is true that the open circuit stub of a "T" connector will have no
noticable or measurable affect on HF (or probably even VHF) frequencies.
However if you connect a piece of coax to the "T" then the stub is as
long as the coax plus the dimensions of that part of the "T". If you
used 10 or 20 feet of coax running to the 1 megohm input of your o'scope
this would look like a 10 or 20 foot open (in a 50 ohm system 1 megohm
is nearly equal to an open circuit) stub, which would have some
significant reactance, possibly acting as a trap at one of the higher HF
bands. Therefore if you do use the "T" method you should use a small
value capacitor or large value resistor in series right at the T before
feeding any cable to run to the o'scope. Then the length of the open
stub will appear only about a centimeter or two long, and only matter at
1296 MHz and up, as someone else has pointed out.
go for the "T" shaped M/F/F plug on the ANT 1 output... Someone says that
the radio will not see the small impedance bump on HF even with an open
connection on this "T" shaped connector.
