RF Explorer is a handheld digital spectrum analyzer, a very affordable tool for work in all popular frequency bands. It is based on a highly integrated frequency synthesizer and double balanced mixer which offers high performance, compact size, low consumption and low cost.

It has been designed to be used equally well outdoor and indoor, and can be connected to a PC for extra functionality using standard mini-USB 2.0 connector.

This model includes a 6G baseline standard unit. It comes with one SMA connectors and a rubber duck 5.8 GHz antenna, good for 5.2-6.0GHz scanning. Additional, specific band antennas may be needed to cover efficiently some of the frequencies supported.

Can be extended with internal Expansion Modules for additional band and functionality, and easily convert it to a 6G Combo or WiFi Combo more capable models.

The combination of these two models offer coverage for most used communication frequency range used in modern communication technologies including 5GHz WiFi, Wireless Video, 5.8GHz ISM, Satellite, etc.

    Very poor customer service. First and only time I will deal with Core electronics.

    Core Electronics reply - Nothing wrong with the product. Brett purchased this but realized later he had chosen the wrong product. As we had to special order this in from overseas and we seldom sell them, we were unable to sustainably offer a refund or exchange. (Posted on 19/07/2017)
