Beware of cheap underperforming clones

As of 2023 there are many badly performing clones on the market. V2/3GHz NanoVNA uses parts like ADF4350 and AD8342 which are costly and clones have been cutting costs by using salvaged or reject parts.

See official store and look for V2 Plus4/V2 Plus4 Pro versions only to avoid getting a bad clone. We have stopped selling V2.2 versions since October 2020, so all V2 hardware that are not Plus or Plus4 are not made by us and we can not guarantee performance.

Firmware update failure

Pepper Irvin- KI5IEQ 2023/06/08 08:37

Went through the firmware update process as best as I could follow, after setting VNA to DUT and installing the bin file, dialogue box says  Uploading firware..... Done 106KB. Won't go any further, stuck in DUT mode. Any suggestions, tried restarting update twice, no good.

DUT - Device Under Test

DFU - Device Firmware Update

- usually the next power-on cycle terminates the dfu mode; maybe you loaded wrong (not for yours device) firmware.

In principle, you can't make a brick from your device; - choose the right file.
