Some professionals might think less of "ham gear" while hams might think the pro's only use the high dollar stuff. I have a foot in each camp, and use the best tool for the job. I recently was doing some antenna comparison testing for my work and supplemented the data with dBm data i got from my own kiwi spectrum display and others online. That allowed me to do my A/B comparisons at different distances and thus consider the effects of takeoff-angle and antenna pattern. Great to have such a distributed asset online! I used a MiFi connection and my Nexus 9 to get to the various sites. Here's a pix of setting up the units under test .
