|MFJ VNA Antenna Analyzer covers 1 to 230 MHz, 1Hz resolution.
• Frequency sweep plots: SWR, Impedance, Resistance, Reactance,Phase Angle, Complex Return, Loss, Smith Chart
• Sign of reactance
• Amazing accuracy with OSL(Open-Short-Load) calibration.
New MFJ-226 introduces the MFJ Times Technology series of advanced Antenna Analyzers!
This groundbreaking VNA antenna analyzer -- MFJ-226 Antenna Expert -- delivers OSL calibration and true reactance including its sign from 1 MHz to 230 MHz with 1-Hz frequency resolution!
Incredibly Powerful MFJ-226 is the first and only low-cost handheld VNA(Vector Network Analyzer) to feature OSL(open/short/load) calibration for super accuracy and sign of reactance to positively identify inductive or capacitive reactance.
These two features, normally only found on lab instruments, place incredible diagnostic power in the palm of your hand.
With it, you`ll measure impedance plus many other critical load parameters directly or through a feed-line or test cable with exceptional accuracy, correcting for line loss and phase angle.
Single Frequency Mode
Presents an unusually wide range of load information including . . .
Series and Parallel Impedance (R±jX)
S11 (Rectangular and Polar)
Generates, displays, captures accurate plots versus frequency of
Return Loss (S11)
SmithChart plot shows S11 magnitude and phase angle over any frequency span you specify.
32 memories let you capture screens made in the field for download into your PC via mini USB port for later storage and use.
Store OSL Calibrations
You can run OSL calibrations through your test cable or feed-line or at different frequencies and store them for future use.

I bought one of these in May 2015, very very happy with it. Downloaded manual, drivers, PC program and firmware from MFJ website and upgraded firmware. Far more reliable than my old 259B and makes antenna analysis a breeze. Richard M0ITC
