I just did some trials to use the SMA Spectrum Analyzer as a reflectometer using my software (see previous post).
- 1x SMA Spectrum Analyzer 138MHz-4.4GHz
- 1x Noise Generator - I used the cheap BG7TBL one (20 Euro at eBay)
- Cables and adapters
This picture shows the pattern of a non-terminated cable with 2300mm length.
This resulted in the following measurements:
57 MHz > fault at 2300 mm
200 MHz > fault at 600 mm
