has developed a meter scale program that makes design
of nearly any panel meter easy. I discovered both Jim
and his software through a mutual friend. Jim's program
was new and not many people were aware of what it would
do when my original QST article describing it was published
in October 2002. Everyone that I talked to loved his program
and was enthusiastic about the possibilities.
Since that time Jim has made significant improvements
to his original program and the information in that original
magazine article is now outdated.
The photo below is one Jim took illustrating a typical
meter scale made with his meter software. His
website covers all of the details and you can download
the software from there.
website includes other significant software tools that
you may find necessary for your toolbox, particularly
if you do filter design work. I call his technical software
offerings Tools that Matter.
