The recommended enclosure was obtained; not cheap at around 20 pounds, but makes for a neat unit. I used an SMA connector for the antenna port.
Not surprisingly the software had been updated since I bought the kit, but it didnt take long to do the upgrade following the instructions provided.
Initially the unit was powered by six Eneloop AA cells mounted in the supplied battery holders connected via the regulator board supplied with the kit providing regulated 5V
The flash screen came up immediately and following the instructions in the manual a 2 MHz to 30 MHz open/short/load calibration was done. My Alpha-delta DXCC antenna was connected and the VSWR, Return Loss and even a smith chart plot were obtained
Very impressed with the unit, especially as it cost under 100 pounds. Cannot wait until the transmission measurement add on becomes available
