Subject: [SnoVARC] NanoVNA Demo Thursday 6pm?

Would the group be interested in a short NanoVNA demo on Thursday 6pm before the Rookie Roundtable? A couple people have requested this and, with the social distancing, it will be a while before I can bring it to an in-person event...   so let's Zoom it! 

Based on responses and availability of others we'll make a decision in the next 48 hours but I'm ready to do it if you'll join. Let us know! 

I'll be focusing on using the NanoVNA as an SWR tester for antennas. The topics will include:
· Hardware overview
o Example hardware / where to get
· Set to show SWR (easy)
o Trace
o Scale (.25 a line)
o Stimulus
· Calibrate
· Save Calibration
· Recall Calibration
· Sweep 2m and 70cm
· Zoom to 70cm
· Show two different antenna tunes
· Sweep HF ant
· Identify where HF ant is “tuned”
