RF antenna tests

A functionality test of the antenna should be part of the test flow in production. The antenna test method should be chosen according to the product configuration which determines the suitability of each test method.

When using external components on the nRF9160 antenna signal path, all functional modes should be included. Selecting enough RF test frequencies to cover all antenna tuner setting combinations achieves this.
