Bird - The RF Experts
SH-60S-AOC, 6 GHz RF Spectrum Analyzer

RF Spectrum Analysis at Your Fingertips

SH-42S-AOA, 9 kHz to 6 GHz RF Spectrum Analyzer
Boost your readiness, and ability to identify and locate interfering RF signals. The SH-60S-AOA expands upon proven functionality of the SH-60S-TC handheld spectrum analyzer; while maintaining a frequency range of 9 kHz to 6 GHz.

  • Easily scan, classify and locate signals of interest in the field environment
  • Endure the harshest working conditions with real-time RF spectrum analyzers designed for durability – completely sealed, rugged & weather-resistant
  • Measure RF power using an optional Bird power sensor
  • Measuring slight changes in impedance will help uncover passive intermodulation distortion and adjacent channel power problems for digitally modulated signals
  • Scan the environment to discover spectrum events other analyzers will miss with predefined measurements
  • Big on performance with industry leading dynamic range, sweep speed and amplitude accuracy
  • Rugged high-resolution touch screen display simplifies the setup and data capturing
  • Save time and ensure consistent results by automating routine tasks for basic spectrum analysis
  • View the spectrum with trace display, spectrogram display, or both
  • Up to 4 hours with rechargeable battery
  • Lightest, all-in-one analyzer at only 1.98 lb (0.9 kg)

Carry Precision with You
