    I have a SARK100. It's pretty handy. I had to make my own calibration loads. I just used a programmable resistor board I had laying around. I find it to be quite accurate.

    I don't like the absence of shielding. I'd find a metal enclosure for it.

    The reason I wanted a link was so I could look at it and see what was up with it.

    I ordered one from Amazon. I believe it will suit my modest needs. Facebook has a group titled NANOVNA. It has over 1000 members, so it should be a reliable technical source.
