Beware of cheap underperforming clones

As of 2022 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.

How to run nanoVNA in Linux? ( where is a repository ?)

Anne Ranch 2022/12/11 04:32

I have downloaded  both .zip and .linux  of nanoVNA  for QT and cannot get them to "run" in Linux / Ubuntu .

Is there a real  "sudo apt install nanoVNA " from repository ?

If not - why ?

These  ,zip / etc  "instillation instructions " are just a way  to screw around with good , useful piece of software.

Can  somebody *finish the job* , using the customary Linux  WAY,  and put the stuff  in repository ?

I know nanoVNA HARDWARE is NOT open source, but software ???

I have been using "": executable.
Wrong - "NanoVNASaver"  runs as Linux executable
same as any other Linux app  from "terminal"
no messing with :"cd ..." etc.

I am sure it is documented somewhere....

It would be nice if the actual text of the executable
was all  in ONE case - KISS!
