12 April 2021 – Introduction to VNAs and the NanoVNA by Alan Wolke, W2AEW

| December 23, 2020

Alan’s presentation

Alan will give an introduction to what a VNA is, the fundamentals of VNA operation and terminology, what it’s good for. Then he will go into the NanoVNA specifically – a bit about the design, calibration, operation and typical use cases. All of this is followed by the limitations of the NanoVNA compared to “professional” VNAs.
