It has been designed to be used equally well indoor and outdoor, and can be connected to a PC for extra functionality using standard mini-USB 2.0 connector.


This model includes a 6G baseline unit plus an RFEMWSUB3G Expansion Module conveniently assembled and tested. It comes with two SMA connectors and three antennas: a nice dual band telescopic 144/430MHz wideband telescopic antenna for all Sub-GHz frequencies, a rubber duck 5.8 GHz and a whip helical for 2.4GHz band. Additional, specific band antennas may be needed to cover efficiently some of the frequencies supported.


The combination of these two models offer coverage for most used communication frequency range used in modern communication technologies including WiFi, Bluetooth, Wireless Audio and Video, LTE, GSM, GPRS, Satellite, CATV, DTV, etc.

    Nice unit for this price.
    It provides high quality spectrum info especially considering its price. The only shortage is the tiny screen. (You can also connect it to a PC so you can have better view, but in that case I will advice you buy a holder as well). Nice unit for this price.

    Nice Handy Device
    Good for testing and troubleshooting. Compact and precise. The price is amazing when you know the usual price of spectrum analyzers. A great handy device for radio amateurs.

    Received with power switch in on position. Bit of an oversight to leave it on for months in storage, although the battery is obviously protected because it still charged, the software shows the capacity is reduced to 85% (after a few days charging and a couple self calibration routines.)
