Marker A (green dots) has been positioned on the peak using the Find control.
Marker B (red dots) has been manually positioned at 1.95MHz.



















2. Sweep setup

Maximum range of the N2PK VNA is 50kHz to 60MHz.
Note the "Plot F=0" option, which can often make the frequency scale easier to read
(in this example, the scale becomes 6.0MHz/div instead of 5.995MHz).








3.NEW single-frequency readout

Large displays and bar-graphs for easy tuning.

Support email addresses will be found in the manual, which is included in the download.

One known problem easily fixed: if  your computer has led an extraordinarily sheltered life
the program generates an error message about MSSTDFMT.dll not being loaded.
To cure this:

Copy the msstdfmt.dll file to your system directory.

Under the Windows Start menu select Run...
and type: regsvr32 /s msstdfmt.dll

shut down and restart the computer.

that should register the dll with the system and fix the problem.
