RF Spectrum Analysis at Your Fingertips

Carry Precision and Predefined Measurements with You

The SH-60S-AOA extends the capability of the SH-60S-TC by adding the ability to triangulate the location of an interferer on a map for signals between 9 kHz and 6 GHz. Highly portable, the SH-60S-AOA easily fits in one hand and boasts an intuitive touchscreen user interface.

Leveraging multi-touch technology, users will find a high-resolution touchscreen with familiar, easy to use, methods for setting up and use the RF spectrum analyzer. Field engineers, technicians, wireless equipment manufacturers, service providers, contractors, tower erectors and military personnel alike have come to trust the precision results and efficiency of SignalHawk™.

Predefined Measurements Include:

  • Channel Power
  • Adjacent Channel Power Ratio (ACPR)
  • Phase Noise
  • N dB Down bandwidth
  • Occupied Bandwidth (OBW)
  • Field Strength
  • FM Demodulation
  • CNR Loss (GNSS signal quality)
  • Spectrum Masking and Limit Lines
  • Three Year Warranty
