The analyzer is designed for measuring SWR (standing wave ratio), return loss, cable loss, as well as other parameters of cable and antenna systems in the range of 100 kHz to 230 MHz.
A built-in ZOOM capability makes graphical measurements especially effective.
An integrated Time Domain Reflectometer mode can be used to locate a fault within the feedline system.
The following tasks are easily accomplished by using this analyzer:

Q: The output RF level at the antenna connector of the AA-230 ZOOM is -10 dBm, which is quite low compared to many other instruments. Does it mean the analyzer will not operate properly with long cables?
A: No, the AA-230 ZOOM will work fine with long (hundreds of meters) cables. The analyzer has a very sensitive, narrow band input, so -10 dBm is much enough for accurate measurements, even after loosing a few decibels in a long cable.
Q: The specs say the AA-230 ZOOM has a square wave output, which means there are several frequency components (harmonics) in such a signal. Then, how the SWR and other parameters of my antenna are measured at a specific, single frequency?A: Please look at the structure diagram of the analyzer. The instrument filters out all unnecessary frequency components, thanks to the very narrow band (several hundred Hz) filter.
Q: Is the AA-230 ZOOM sensitive to nearby repeaters or broadcast transmitters?A: No, unless a high-power transmitter is operating closely at the same frequency you are trying to use the analyzer at.
Q: Can I charge Ni-MH batteries inside the analyzer?A: No, please remove batteries from the analyzer and use a separate charger.
Q: Can I use Lithium-Ion batteries instead of alkaline or Ni-MH ones?A: Most likely, you will burn the analyzer. Lithium-Ion batteries have an output voltage of about 3.7 V each: compare to 1.2 V for Ni-MH and 1.5 V for alkaline ones.

When I received my call sign a few years back, I was flooded with purchases of junk. Fast forward to 2019. I decided I wanted to build another option, not a dealer who has the same stuff as everyone else, but a dealer who actually uses what he sells. And that’s exactly what I do. If you see a product on this page or one of our tables at Hamfest, you can bet we have tried it and like it. From Radios to connectors we strive to bring you QUALITY. Sure, you can find it cheaper and we understand that, but if you don’t want to buy it again in 6 months, take a look at what we sell and have already approved. I am always just a phone call away.
