This week on the HamRadio 360 Workbench, George and Jeremy sit down with Beric Dunn (K6BEZ), the designer of our Antenna Analyzer project! Beric is a professional RF design engineer by trade, and he wanted to provide a project that would allow a ham to learn some fundamental principles while making a useful gadget.
The K6BEZ antenna analyzer will provide VSWR measurements for any antenna from 1 to 30 MHz. Frequency and VSWR is shown on the built in LCD display. Data can optionally be sent over the USB cable to a PC running a program that will plot the VSWR on a graphical window display.The analyzer can be programmed to scan any sub band and has built in ranges for 160m, 80m, 60m, 40m, 30m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, 10m.
