Antenna Measurement Solution - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

It's definitely not worth the money! The SW is hard to get used to and the whole system can be built and programmed a LOT cheaper (if you have the resources or skills!!!)
