i had 30unit of old 2.4Ghz antenna, use for wireless lan and now want to reuse them ,but need to test whether those antenna is in good working condition or not.
so how do i test it and with which test equipment?

i can do a VSWR/impedance test using HP8414ET Network analyser. but is there any other tester which is cheap and small to do such test?

please recommend?

Some type of network analyzer is needed if you really want to know the performance. There are cheaper types as "sitemasters". They often work up to several GHz.
