RF Explorer is a handheld digital spectrum analyzer, a very affordable tool for work in all popular frequency bands. It is based on a highly integrated frequency synthesizer and double balanced mixer which offers high performance, compact size, low consumption and low cost.
It has been designed to be used equally well outdoor and indoor, and can be connected to a PC for extra functionality using standard mini-USB 2.0 connector.
This model includes a 6G baseline standard unit. It comes with one SMA connectors and a rubber duck 5.8 GHz antenna, good for 5.2-6.0GHz scanning. Additional, specific band antennas may be needed to cover efficiently some of the frequencies supported.
Can be extended with internal Expansion Modules for additional band and functionality, and easily convert it to a 6G Combo or WiFi Combo more capable models.
The combination of these two models offer coverage for most used communication frequency range used in modern communication technologies including 5GHz WiFi, Wireless Video, 5.8GHz ISM, Satellite, etc.

Nice spectrum analyzer for drone racing events Bought this to get some clarity about 5.5GHz spectrum while organizing drone racing events. Works perfectly. Update time and frequency range are acceptable. Makes it very easy to verify video transmission power and channel.
Planning to buy signal generator, to make antenna measurements. Windows software looks very nice, but most important for me is Python API and ability to control the device from Linux.
