Cheap RF Bridge testing with Siglent SSA 3021X

In this video we take a look at a cheap RF-Bridge, something called a Reflection Bridge or a Directional Coupler. We tested it with a Siglent SSA 3021X Spectrum Analyzer. While I liked playing with the RF Bridge I can’t recommend it for any serious work but it might be fun for a hobbyist to tinker with.
