I'm expecting one of the first AEA Complex Impedance Analyzers in Europe
to arrive next Monday for review for RadCom (RSGB). The work will be
shared with GM4ZNX, who will be testing its accuracy by kind permission
of his employers - Hewlett-Packard.

Look for a report in RadCom in about *three months* 

(Regretfully we will not be able to provide ANY advance information
until the report has been published in the magazine - sorry, not even to
friends, so please don't ask.)

At the moment we have no plans to review the MFJ-259B, but... who knows?
