EU1KY AA Firmware stabilization version update (V0.4) and mores about v0.4V0.4 has been changed to the stable version without changing the version number.
I and testers tested for about a week and did not have any problems, so I added V0.4 to the stable version list.

2.Additions about digital mode with Antenna Analyzer
From V0.4, WSPR, FT8 and JT65 transmission functions have been added.
There were reports that the antenna analyzer alone succeeded in the WSPR beacon without any hardware modifications or additional circuitry.
For low power WSPR, please refer to the link below.
If your antenna performance is OK, connect the antenna connector to S2 of the Antenna Analyzer and try to transmit the WSPR.
2.1 If you want to increase the output, see below.
If your antenna performance is not as good as me, you can use WSPR by increasing the output as shown below.
You may be able to increase the output with just a few parts.
The simpler method is to use the following parts.
It is an LNA that can be purchased for about $ 6 to $ 8 on eBay or AliExpress.
When I tested it, the output was about 300mW. I used this and a car whip antenna and got a pretty long distance WSPR report.
It is very weak, but you can add LPF if you need it.
3.Things working on these days
Various experiments related to VNA (S2 -> S1)
3.1 I used a short coaxial cable when testing the S21-Gain.
It is possible to measure about -40 ~ -50dB up to about ~ 150Mhz.
3.2. If a diode is added as shown below, connect a -10dB attenuator between S2 and S1.
If you do not use a diode like me, you do not need to add anything.
3.3 There was an experiment that adjusted impedance using BGA616
(thanks dummy load). The tester switched the impedance by changing the switch.
He says there is no need to this mod.
3.4 Experiment S21-Gain with controllable atteunator
I and DH1AKF talked about controllable attenuators a few weeks ago.
Below is a photograph of the experiment sent to me by DH1AKF.
Below is another form of PE4302 that arrived to me today.
This is only for attenuation experiments, so there is no need to use Antenna Analyzer.
Again say, this module is not required for using the Antenna Analyzer. You do not have to buy it.
