IMD Tester

I designed and built a state-of-the-art Intermodulation Distortion (IMD) tester for use in my home lab. I prepared an article describing the unit for possible publication in the ARRL's QEX magazine where I thought it might be useful to other experimenters. It was summarily rejected, and here is the rather rude rejection letter from Kasimierz "Kaz" Siwiak, KE4PT Editor, QEX:

ARRL Rejection Letter

The "sheer volume of incoming manuscripts" - bull! The periodical is so thin, it's barely worth printing now. Not only that, I didn't want the $50 per page. It was virtually free to "Kaz".

Here is the article: IMD and Phase Noise Test Instrument
