Subject: VCO Driver Output power v. slider control voltage 

I measured the RF power output of the VCO Driver box as a function of slider value. I measured using the Gigatronics Handheld power meter and connected to the AOM side of the cable after the white Pasternak DC block.

* at low power levels, I believe the waveform is too crappy to get an accurate reading - that's probably why it looks non-monotonic.

* the meter has a sticker label on it saying 'max +20 dBm'. I went above +20 dBm, but I wonder if maybe the thing isn't linear up there...
