In any case, I highly recommend reading this ARRL book:

Understanding Your Antenna Analyzer

Thank you for clearing that up. I was a little rusty on the Zx, but I was correct on the other two.

That link looks like a very worth while read so I can brush up a bit on what I have forgotten over the years. When you don't use it very often, it tends to get in the back of the line and all but forgotten

I appreciate your Christmas gift, hope you have a good one and get a shiny new rig under the tree tomorrow morning.
