Antenna / Radio Tester
An easy to use pocketable meter that checks:
· Receiver Function · Output Power · Antenna VSWR
Use Internal Battery or External 12 VDC
1. Attach the antenna to the “ANT” connection on
the ART-3 meter.
2. Use a 1-meter length of 50-ohm cable
(Shakespeare part #4079, sold separately) to
connect the transceiver to the meter.
3. If desired, connect the supplied power cord to
12VDC only, making sure to observe polarity
to avoid damage.
To Test VHF Receiver:
1. Set radio to CH72, volume up to 1/3 and squelch
to minimum - counter clockwise.
2. Slide ART-3 Bottom Switch to “Rx TEST”.
3. A Tone should be heard through the Noise on the
Radio. If no Tone is heard seek technical help.
4. Slide Bottom Switch to “PWR OFF”.

To Test ART-3 Internal Battery:
1. Slide Bottom Switch to “BAT”. Read “BAT” scale.
2. Slide to “PWR OFF” when done.
3. Use only type 23A or MN21 12V alkaline battery.
To Test Antenna VSWR):
1. Slide ART-3 Top Switch to “SET”
2.Transmitter on radio and turn “ADJ” knob until
Needle just touches the leading edge of the blue
“Set” line.
3. Slide top Switch to “VSWR”. Read middle scale.

inspection and possible replacement of the
PL-259 connector, the coax cable, or the antenna.
Seek technical help as needed.
