Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

What is the difference between a RF power meter and a RF power sensor?

Not to be a smartaleck, but a power sensor plugs in to a power meter. The sensor converts the power into a current or voltage that the meter then formats into a user interface.
Otherwise many people use the two terms interchaneably.
