I have been curious of what the noise figure on the Golden Media GM-201 LNB is. GM-201 is the LNB that is included as part of my PARI-O product.
So I measured it using the "Y-factor" method and created a YouTube video of it.
Check it out here :https://youtu.be/FQJ4tHVDCeo
The novel thing is that I did not use any test gear at all to determine the Noise Figure of the 10GHz LNB!
Thanks goes out to Serge - VE1KG for sending me a PDF that got me to try out the techniques I show in the video. The PDF is written by Rein Smit - W6SZ and Brian Thorson - AF6NA and is stored on the San Bernardino Microwave society web page.
The spreadsheet mentioned in the PDF and in the video was created by W6OYJ and can be downloaded here.
Enjoy the video and let me know if you tried out the same technique and what your findings were.
