So I spent my disposable part of the day building an RF Sampler and looking at the oscilloscope.  At first I kinda got worried.  I saw the image below.

So then I realized that at 20mV per division (you can't see the pointer in the image, but it IS on 20 mV), that's not so terrible.  Especially when I look at the video below:

This was on 1V per division.  So that looks okay I guess.  Initially I was concerned about the distortion I was hearing on my wideband HT, but since my HT was on AM (no SSB modes available), it is probably okay.

So I'm on to looking at the antenna and feedline.  Next up to build: a field strength meter.
