Some of My Favorite Test Gear Comes From China

The genesis of this paper and presentation was a workshop presentation that the author attended at the
most recent (2017) North East Weak Signal Group (N.E.W.S.) conference. The workshop, presented by
Donald Twombly W1FKF, Michael Seguin N1JEZ, and Paul Wade W1GHZ, was titled Microwaves Without
a Wheelbarrow of Dollars. Among the items the author saw was an inexpensive VHF-UHF RF Impedance
Analyzer (“Antenna Analyzer”) rated to an upper frequency limit of 2.7 GHZ. He was also intrigued by a
RF signal source good to 4.4 GHz for only $65.
