  • Do NOT make any decisions based on this board. Apparently the people who created this have never heard of matching networks. The only 2 antennas that are even close to being matched correctly are the 3011 (center frequency of 1.556 GHz) and TE Puck (1.612 GHz). The other antennas are so poorly matched (center frequency of > 2GHz) that you're really measuring the transmission line, not the antenna itself. That doesn't make them bad antennas; they've been placed on boards without the necessary caps and inductors needed to make them work well.

    SparkFun – I have VNA and I can tell you the matching networks needed to fix this board. Please contact me if you're interested in fixing this!

No public wish lists :(
