Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.

Post subject: RP-TNC/f calibration 50 Ohm load ?

Hi, I am trying to eliminate as many interconnections as possible to run SWR test of 2.4 GHz omnidirectional 'rubber-duck' WiFi antenna. I am using Agilent E5071B NA. Its port has N/f interface. Antenna has RP-TNC/f interface. My ideal situation would be to use just one N/m to RP-TNC/m adapter (I got one). I need to calibrate Network Analyzer with 50-Ohm Load, Short, Open with that adapter attached.
Does anybody know where can I get those calibration tools with RP-TNC/f interface? Do they exist? Is it possible to make them on my own?
Any ideas will be appreciated.
