That would be great, thanks ! The main issues where help would be very
- are there any obvious design flaws, particularly in the layout ?
- given a PCB antenna (meandered inverted F) designed for a 1.0 mm
board, how would it have to be adjusted for a 0.8 mm board ?
(This is what I'm trying to determine via experiments.)
- measurement of the SWR of the antenna
(I can only do this indirectly, by measuring the performance of the
- measurement of spectrum leakage, with a view to FCC et al.
(My uncalibrated equipment can only "see" the 1st and 2nd harmonic,
so all I can make sure is that nothing truly catastrophic is
happening, but I would probably miss any subtler violations.)
