Homebrew VNA (Antenna analyzer)

Postby Eamon » Thu Jun 02, 2011 3:03 pm

Here is a standalone adaptation of the N2PK vector network analyzer

http://www.members.shaw.ca/swstuff/vna.html

Schematic, artwork and firmware are published.

It is based on the original design by N2PK which you can read about here
http://n2pk.com/

It only covers HF, but it compares very favorably with other VNAs. Here http://www.m0wwa.co.uk/pdf/VNA_comparisons.pdf are comparison test results of a several commercial ham-grade analyzers along with the N2PK design and a HP 3577A.
