In some respects, any test equipment required for LF or MF operation can be much simpler and less expensive than needed for higher frequencies. With the long wavelengths involved, the careful construction techniques required for higher HF, VHF, UHF, and microwaves may not be required. However, some specialized test equipment will certainly help in the construction and operation of MF or LF stations.
Test and other ancilliary equipment will be broken down into several sections below.
- Receiver sensitivity testing
- Antenna tuning and measurements
- Transmit power monitoring
- Waveform evaluation
- Digital modes evaluation
