Measuring attenuation in microwave signal passing through a section of concrete wall. The horn antenna is on the right and a HF35B meter is on the left.
I would sit at the table, adjust frequency and amplitude of the microwave signal generator, and record signal strength measured by the HF35B meter.
There are at least three species of cactus on the 60 acres.
