There are a lot of spectrum analyzers in the market. If the person is having a hard time thinking of what brand to try, then perhaps using something from Agilent technologies can help make that happen.
The company has large units such as the E4447A that measures complex RF and millimeter waves up from 42.98 Ghz to 325 Ghz. The price for one of these things is expensive and fetches for more than $60,000 a piece.
If the individual doesn’t have the budget, then perhaps something cheaper will suffice such as the 8560EC portable spectrum analyzer that can only measure until 2.9 Ghz, which is half the price of the bigger unit.
The E4411B-BAS ESA-L Basic is another interesting model. It can measure from 9 to 1.5Ghz and is very lightweight. This will only cost $8,000 and will work well for those who are just starting out.
Some stores sell these products but if the person wants other options, then it will be a good idea to visit the company website and select from the models available until the right one is found.
The company accepts orders online and after paying for this using one’s credit card, this will be delivered within 6 to 8 weeks that comes with a manual and a warranty.
If the customer has any problems with the product, there is a customer service hotline that the person can call so that a representative could offer assistance.
There are those who are still hesitant about the price of a brand new spectrum analyzer. If that is the case, then the company can give a better deal by offering second hand units that have been returned or this can be traded for something the owner might have that is no longer useful.
There are other places where the individual can also get a second hand unit from Agilent. There is eBay and other auctions sites as well as junkyards that may have one lying around that will need some repair.
Spectrum analyzers can be used in checking the sound system in the entertainment room or in the car. The samples mentioned can be used either for work or for other functions.
