I am designing a circuit with a 2.4 GHZ printed antenna, I would like to probe the antenna for S11 parameters without sticking an SMA jack on the PCB. It seems to me that the only way to accomplish this is to put an RF Probe point on the PCB. Can someone direct me to a resource that specifies how to place the probe point?
I would like some information on what the probe point should look like, I suspect this depends greatly on the type of probe that is being used. What types of probes exist? I have heard of the use of pigtails as cheap RF probes but I am not so sure about the details (and pitfalls) of doing this.
