Overview of the wattmeter showing the directional coupler and the 50-ohm load.
Diode detector side of the directional coupler. This particular board and diode where taken from an old brick-style cellular phone. The little module board has all the necessary components aleady installed.
The actual directional coupler. Frequency response should be good from to a few GHz. Power handling should be that of a typical cellular phone, which have power options from a few milliwatts to +6 Watts. The coupling factor isn't known.
Picture of the coupler hooked to a analog microampere meter.
Another internal view. RF input/output is by the BNC connectors on top, the switch toggle between two 50k Ohm potentiometers to select low and high power modes.
