“Not for sale in the US”

SARK110I’ve hesitated upgrading from my very old MFJ antenna analyzer due to the fact that other analyzers seem over-priced for what they offer.

Finally, from Spain, the SARK-110 – yet unavailable in the US due (I think) to patent issues.

Hopefully those matters will get resolved to allow sales here.

Features include (from their website):

  • Pocket size and lightweight
  • Solid aluminum case
  • Intuitive and easy to use
  • Operating modes: Scalar Chart,  Smith Chart, Single Frequency, Cable Test (TDR), Field Mode, Multi-band, Signal Generator, and Computer Control
  • Excellent accuracy over a broad range of impedances
  • Resolves the sign of the impedance
  • Manual and automatic positioning tracking markers
  • Internal 2MB USB disk for the storage of measurements, screenshots, configuration and firmware upgrade
  • Exports data in ZPLOTS-compatible format for further analysis on a PC
  • SARK Plots client software for Windows
  • Lifetime free firmware upgrades
  • Open to community requested features
  • Open source Software Development Kit (SDK) including a device simulator for development of user applications

    I, too, looked at the SARK in 2012 when shopping for an analyzer, but moved on as it wasn’t readily available. I ended up with a RigExpert AA-54. While it doesn’t have the full color screen of the SARK, it destroys anything from MFJ. Somewhat more money for each model to cover a particular frequency range than a comparable MFJ, but the ease of use, USB interface, graphical display and running for months on 2 AA batteries makes them an obvious choice over MFJ. I got my from rigexpert.net in Canada, with great service.

      I’ll probably do that myself (AA-54) if the Sark still isn’t available in a few months. The main feature I want that’s missing from the MFJ is the ability to save data and screenshots to a computer so that I can monitor changes over time – and this mainly to see the effect of one antenna on another in close proximity as I experiment with various wire configs for 40/80 meters.
