The Rf Test Field can be challanging for a newcomer.
My suggestion would be the Instrument manufacturers
themselves. Agilent, Rohde & Schwarz, National
Instruments and others have many white papers, technical
notes and other reference sources. Agilent has always
been great at producing numerous application notes
and the operating manuals can all be downloaded
at no cost and are valuable resources on how to
make the measurements, how to use the instruments
and tips for using the instruments. Rohde &
Schwarz has several small books at low cost on Vector
and Spectrum Analysis. National Instrument also
has many on line resources. Most of these resources
are free for download. I have collected most of
the best over the years and have built quite a library
to use when needed. Agilent and NI have many code
examples that give an easy start to automating.
Another method would be to hire a consulting resource
like myself to jump start you into the field quickly
and do some initial coding to get you started.
