Help - Building a siginal direction and distiance

Recommended Posts

Hello All, I am looking to build a siginal direction and distance locator. Basically what i would like to do is track down siginals interfering with my wireless video system.

I know that i will need a reciever that is in-tune with whatever frequency i am working. and i would like to use a 4 led light display in a cross pattern(one on top, bottom, left and right). What i am not sure about is how will i gage the incoming frequency and send that signal to the correct led display.

If you can help me in building a working model, i will send you the complete plans in building this gadget

thank you

Range is probably not practical, but for direction just Google "directional foxhunt antenna" or perhaps "ham radio doppler foxhunt". If this was for VHF frequencies I would have recommended searching for ARDF (Amateur Radio Direction Finding).

Be forewarned -- I hear that foxhunting sources of microwave signals can be difficult. The RF reflections can easily fool the search.
