Yes, any antenna for the right frequency range can be used. For instance they can use the 2.4GHz whip if intended to use at 2.4GHz range, however at different frequencies will require different antennas. thanks.

Is the low end 24MHz? If so how about a signal generator that will do 160 meters on up to compliment the spectrum analyzer I just bought from you for $165.00?

RF Explorer Signal Generator currently supports frequencies starting at 24MHz. An upcoming expansion board will enhance the frequency range down to 100KHz. We expect this new expansion board to be available before end of year.

Is there a difference between RFEGEN and RFE6GEN? Your RFE6GEN page still refers to RFEGEN. Are they the same thing?

yes, you can connect an external amplifier, the exact model depends on required power and frequency range. Note jammer is illegal in most countries.
