I'm wondering if a HP8756A network analyzer by itself is enough to measure the resonant frequency of a GPS chip antenna?
The reason I am concerned that it cannot is because I cannot see a "RF Out" connector on the front panel. I hired a portable NWA last time I wanted to measure the resonant frequency, and it had a "RF Out" connector on it. Does the HP8756A require an external "sweeper" (more costly hardware) to generate the RF signal?
The manual for the HP8756A can be found at http://www.teknetelectronics.com/ManualsPDF/HP_AGILENT/HP__8757A_OM_1.pdf
For an example of a NWA with a "RF Out", see the HP 8753C at http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-8753C-Network-Analyzer-300-kHz-6-GHz/281062308784?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D777000%26algo%3DABA.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27538%26meid%3Dbc1bc0d4ce4b49a5a1333d41ff4fbc54%26pid%3D100009%26prg%3D11353%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26
