PreciseRF was created by retired Tektronix engineer Roger M. Stenbock (W1RMS). At Tektronix, he was a design engineer for the 2200 series oscilloscopes FG501, FG502, FG503, and FG504 function generators.
He noted that while there are a number of cost-effective SWR measurement devices available, no affordable precision wideband RF samplers, directional couplers, return loss bridges and wideband demodulators were readily available for the amateur radio enthusiast with access to a low-cost scope.
Robert Kirkpatrick (KI6HNA) brings over 35 years of electronic design, manufacturing, and compliance testing experience from Silicon Valley most notably in the high-end consumer electronics field. Receiving his amateur radio general class licenses in 2009 Rob has joined Roger in the development of the PreciseRF product line by reviewing designs, making design suggestions and improvements, and then developing the actual products for manufacturing. His knowledge about components, CAD tools, PCB design, vendors, and suppliers allows him to make a quick turnaround on prototype designs.
Travis Cannon (KK7BKJ) is a software engineer and technology consultant. With degrees in Computer and Software Engineering from Oregon Institute of Technology, as well as an MBA from Portland State University, he brings a unique blend of business and technical savvy to his clients.
