Antenna Tuning - NanoVNA

God Damn new hobbies...

So those damn Chinese are making a $75, accurate as hell, Vector Network Analyzer for tuning radio antennas (among other things).

I got this one, and it is n-i-c-e!

Check this out - Tri-Band HT Antenna with a home made Counterpoise, tuned to the 1.25M Band: 1.18 SWR (was at 2-3 out of the box. It preferred 70CM and 2M until I made it submit to my will)

Man, that's tiny. The days of a 40 lbs. brick box on your bench are over, it seems.
