Hi Lee, that looks like a nice piece of equipment there (SVA1032X) as it includes a VNA. But you are in for a steep learning curve to master such a VNA. Most important to know is that you should calibrate your VNA before each measurement you make by using the Open, Short, Load (50 Ohm) and thru plugs so that your VNA "knows" from what point it should be measuring (reference plane). I found a video showing this on the SVA1032X here: https://youtu.be/S0mjcRuFtKw?t=2 Then when making impedance measurements, its good to know what configuration is the best to use for low Impedance (<50 Ohm), 50 Ohm impedance and high Impedance (>50 Ohm). This website shows the 3 configurations of your Device Under Test (DUT) and a graph with the error percentage for each configuration which i found useful: https://www.mwrf.com/technologies/testmeasurement/article/21849791/coppermountaintechnologiesmakeaccurateimpedancemeasurementsusingavnaFurthermore, there are many tutorials to find on the web. I would suggest using the "Series measurement configuration" to look for your resonance frequency of your coil. By the way, there are more simple ways to measure the resonance frequency of a coil using a Function Generator and scope, so use that to find out your coil's resonance frequency and check that against your VNA results.
