Intro To Nano VNA - Zoom Presentation

You've probably all heard about nanoVNA, the tiny inexpensive analyzer, but you may not know what it can do.  So here's a chance to hear about it from an expert and see it in action.  It's a Zoom presentation, so you need Zoom installed (the link is on GBARC homepage)

Dave, VE3WI

Intro To Nano VNA By The Fair Lawn(NJ) ARC

As part of its 2020 Kawfee Tawk Speaker Series, our November program will feature one of the best technical experts in the region and a ham who has certainly developed a following.

Alan Wolke (W2AEW) will be our November presenter. This video program will be held on Friday, November 13th beginning at 7:30 PM EST (0030 UTC).

Alan’s topic will be “An Intro to Nano VNA”. For those of you who haven’t seen/tried one of these Vector Network Analyzers (VNA) called NanoVNA they are an excellent and inexpensive (~$50-100) tool that can do functions (and more) such as measure coax length, locate fault in cable like a TDR, measure filters (bandpass, high/low pass, etc.) and sweep antennas and other RF networks

The program will last about an hour and will include an opportunity for questions and comments.
