At 10mW I think an MFJ-762 atep attenuator will do the trip really nicely
and allow you to dial down the attenuation from 1db through 100dB.

I have a little signal source of 10mw on 434 MHz

I would like to use it as a source to dest the directivity of some antenna

I am finding it it too loud

How can I dampen it down besides drive it 3 kms that way ?

I spose I really need to go for a drive to the country

I really wanted to test here.
