Dec 17 Meeting
The presentation for the December meeting will be a demonstration of a miniVNA (vector network analyzer) by none other than me. I have been using a miniVNA for a while and I have to say that it is stunning in its capabilities. It is a software defined antenna analyzer and graphically shows you all the parameters of your antenna on a computer monitor. It shows resonance, SWR, bandwidth, impedance, resistance, phase, and other values. It also measures cable losses, cable length, quality of filters, transmission, and more. It is also used to tune repeater filter canisters. It also plots Smith Charts. And it does it all quickly – just click a button on screen.
We have more going on in December. We will be electing officers for 2014 at the meeting.
