    Not a lab grade instrument, you CAN connect it to a computer for a larger screen and easier use, the 960mhz limit is the downside. Wish they made one that went to 20ghz since I am starting to play around on 10ghz with the goal of doing moon bounce...

    Gunplexer horn antennas had around 20db of gain if my memory serves me, so your effective radiated power was considerably higher than the 100 milliwatts they put out. Around 6 watts and if the chocolate sat awhile it might melt it... Nobody plays...
