Obsessed with Antenna Analyzers

Filed under: ham radio — Cranky Sysadmin @ 10:38 pm

Rig Expert Ukraine has a great summary of many popular antenna analyzers with descriptions of each family. There are lots of different types, but they all have some common components:

  1. Signal Generator
  2. Detector
  3. Calculation and Presentation

I’m considering starting with the simplest architecture and working my way up until I’m satisfied with performance, or I’m bored. I’ll probably pass on 90 degree phase shifts as there are other (perhaps less accurate) ways to derive the sign of impedance. As I build some complete projects, I’ll post results and details.
