NanoVNA V2 user group / Official support forum


This is the official support forum/user group for the NanoVNA V2, which is a low cost 3GHz T/R VNA (vector network analyzer). It is not based on ttrftech's NanoVNA design but a new from scratch design using 2 ADF4350 to cover up to 3GHz and Si5351 to cover down to 50kHz. Compared to the original ttrftech design, V2 uses only the fundamental signal for measurements and achieves higher dynamic range.

There is only one official NanoVNA V2 groups.io forum, which is NanoVNAV2@groups.io. All other groups are unofficial and you will only get support on this forum. Check the official website for user groups and social media pages:

Hardware revisions

You can check your hardware revision by selecting CONFIG > VERSION in the menu.
Please see https://nanorfe.com/nanovna-versions.html
There are many clones of the NanoVNA V2. While they are all based on the earliest V2.2 design, some differ in parts used and may not be compatible with the official firmware. To ensure you get a supported hardware version, see official stores below.

Name Release Date Remarks
V2 Plus4  
(V2.4)
2020/10 4 inch display. 4x faster sweep (400 points/s). Up to 80dB dynamic range to 3GHz.
