loop circuit is self balancing and uses DC feedback to rebalance the closed
Resistive balance is set by R2A and R2B ZERO controls, front panel
adjustments which are in one leg of the Metering Bridge. DC offset voltage on
the base of A1Q8 determines the balance point of the closed loop. A1R37, ZERO
CARRYOVER, sets the amount of this offset for about +50 millivolts.

circuit is shown in Figure 15. An accurately determined DC current, IDC, is
supplied to the DC CALIBRATION terminals on the rear panel and adjusted to
allow the RF detection bridge to precisely duplicate the RF power measurement
Calculation of DC power from the substituted DC current gives an
accurate measure of the unknown RF microwave power.
