Kirkby Microwave is unique in being the only company in the world producing good quality vector network analyzer calibration kits at prices much lower than from companies like Anritsu,Rohde & Schwarz and Keysight. The calibration kits are not designed for metrology use, but are sufficiently accurate for almost all professional use of a vector network analyzer. Each calibration kit is individually calibrated, and supplied with the correct coefficients in text file for a human to read. For many instruments, Kirkby Microwave is able to supply file types that can be read by a vector network analyzer.
Kirkby Microwave sells most of its products outside the UK, and has sold vector network analyzer calibration kits to Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, The Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA and probably some other countries too. The company usually ships by UPS or FedEx, but is aware that using EMS is more appropriate for some countries like Russia.
