  • Good frequency counter

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The antenna is actually attached via a SMA connector. The antenna is not useful for transmitting, as it's SWR is over 25 from 1.8MHz (the lowest my test equipment will go) to almost 170MHz (the highest my test equipment will go.) It finally dips to a SWR of 22:1 (not 2.2:1; but 22.0:1) around 175 MHz. The advantage of an SMA attached antenna is that you could use a HAM antenna or a Wi-Fi antenna to track down the exact frequency of a signal you wanted. You could also reject unwanted RF with some antennas that only receive a few frequencies. One of these read "146.28" when I keyed a ham handy-talkie on 146.280MHz. It also read out "429.40" when I keyed my radio on 429.400 MHz. That's better than I would have expected. I hear others complaining about these units being deaf. If they were not, they would constantly read out flourescent light frequencies. (That might be why I get 530 MHz readings constantly.)

    Cons: The internal, rechargeable battery is a pain. I much prefer a screw-on back and a replaceable 9v battery. I ordered 2 of these, and the accuracy varies. One use 3 significant digits, while the other uses 5 significant digits. I'm not sure how to use the internal settings. I played with them, but the 3 digit / 5 digit thing might be due to the

    Other: Good, useful device.

  • Very Useful Equipment

    Pros: I bought this equipment because I build RF transmitters and it accurately detects an RF transmitters' operating frequency. If you are building transmitters, for example a Colpitts oscillator in the range of 88-108 MHz, this equipment does a fantastic job for tuning the frequency. Just put it near the transmitter antenna and it shows the frequency being transmitted. Then you can vary the inductance or capacitance of the tank circuit to tune the transmitter correctly in about 10 minutes. If you don't have this equipment, tuning may take several hours.. It can also be used as a bug detector.

    Cons: None

    Other: If you are a student or hobbyist this is very useful device. It does a great job and saves you lots of time.

  • OK accuracy, buggy firmware, and deaf as a post

    posted by clanrat on 12:26:08 G2T 17/02/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This unit is nice and small with a common power supply connector, internal batteries, and a standard SMA connector on it. Unit comes with a wideband UHF antenna (mine was labelled 400-470MHz) and a 120VAC power supply.

    Cons: In some of the menus the arrow keys are backwards. Not a huge issue.
    More of a problem is the lack of sensitivity. This thing is as deaf as a post.
    The unit I received needs -30dBm into the antenna port in order to start counting anything. This makes this unit basically useless as a wireless counter, as you have to be in the near-field of any transmitter to get an input signal level of that magnitude.

    Other: Set your expectations at a reasonable point and you will be happy. This isn't going to replace any 'real' test equipment but would be good for a ham on a budget or a student just getting into the industry.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Really works well for general use, and signal strength indicator is a very handy addition that many counters do not have. It makes it easy to locate transmitters. It uses TWO AAA Batteries (internal) which can be swapped out for larger capacity (MAH) rating for extended runtimes. The charging function works with a "standard nokia" charger (or a USB adapter with that plug!) It cycles charge nicely and runs from charger indefinate. This thing is nearly as small as the charger itself, and fits in ANY pocket or kit.

    Cons: The "menu navigation" (UP/DN) buttons are interchanged/backwards on some of the menus (a minor firmware oversight).
    & The antenna would be nice if were more standard connector.

    Other: You are not going to beat this price for anything with this bandwidth! So if you are interested enough to read my review, you absolutely need to order it!

  • Good RF frequency counter

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Good RF frequency counter. Does what it promises to do, measures well the frequency of many different radio devices. RF signal level meter is a plus. The meter comes with suitable antenna. This unit is small, but not too small. The internal chargeable batteries make this very nice to use.

    Cons: The adapter is a us model, meaning US type mains plug in it. I live in Europe so I would need to use a 110V stepdown transformer with US sockets (non issue for me because I have one) or a mains connector adapter (the PSU specifcation says it works also with 230V).

    Other: Very good product that does what is promised.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: LCD with backlight
    portable
    multiple gating
    easy to use
    very small, I take mine just to do a bit of sniffing, just to see what transmitters are about.

    Cons: short battery life, but as it takes standard batteries I will replace the current ones with high capacity battries

    Other: handy for RF system checking and aerial comparisons

  • A great little piece of test gear

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is a nice pocket sized piece of equipment. It has a BIG screen, which is easy to read. Its also very sensitive. I have to use the filter function in my RF noisy radio shack. It was picking up the LO on the HF radio otherwise!

    Cons: I cant find any, except the adapter is a us model. Might not be easy for some to plug in, I wouldn't recommend bending the pins. I have a 110V stepdown transformer with US sockets on it, so this is a non issue for me.

    Other: A handy piece of test gear for a ham radio op like me, also can have a bit of fun with it, especially if you know the security guys at your local pub!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy tool for people how know about electronic signals.
    Instandly scannes until 2.6Ghz if any thing is sending out electronic signals, like video transmitors, wirelessheadphone's , wireless doorbel's and so on...
    Easy for messurements on al radio signal sending apparatus.

    Cons: You have to be close to get ful readings.
    But i don't think this is a problem.

    Other: thanx DX
