Since version 2.9 of vna/J a command-line version of the vna/J GUI is available (I call this version also headless).

This command-line version can be used to execute automated scans, when no GUI is needed or graph-ical screen output is available.

I'm experiencing problems with the serial library on Mac OS X machines - the XON/XOFF protocoll, which is required by the new bootloader, is not working as expected.

I'm doing some research on this problem ... But you can use the latest version 3 JAR also on Mac OS X except the firmware load function for the miniVNA tiny analyser!

If you want to update the firmware on the miniVNA tiny please use a Microsoft Windows (XP, VISTA, 7, 8, 8.1) based PC.

if you get a message from the OS X, that this developer is not valid, try to switch the App-Download permissions on the security tab in the system settings to "Mac App store and verified developers".


The new version 3 of vna/J is available for download. This is the first version which also supports the new miniVNA tiny. It can be downloaded as usual from here

A driver guide for the miniVNA tiny is not available, but will be provided in the near future.

Due to lack of time, the current version is only tested on Windows - Mac OS X is currently under testing.

Ich habe am 16. Mai 2013 anlässlich eines OV-Abends des DARC Ortsverbands Sindelfingen (P42) einen Vortrag über die Analyser von miniRadioSolutions und vna/J gehalten.

Die Folien gibt es hier als Download. Danke auch an die Teilnehmer für die freundliche Aufnahme und die rege Beteiligung am Vortrag - hat Spass gemacht!

PS: Hans-Werner - Dein Notebook war die Rettung ;-)

Erik, SM3HEW has provided a new version of the bluetooth-script for Linux - thanks for this Erik!
