I just purchased an RF Explorer 6G Combo Plus, and am trying to put it to work to help me coordinate radio frequencies for wireless microphones. I know it covers a far larger range than I truly need. My biggest interest is 210-214 mhz, 470-614 mhz, and 941-960 mhz. When using the unit I mostly just get RF noise, with a few peaks. The spectrum analyzers on my wireless mic receivers are far more useful, as they are properly calibrated for my purposes, and show where the clear frequencies are. Ultimately, I would like to use RF Explorer in conjunction with IAS software, but initially I would like to get it set up in a way that is useful for finding clear frequencies.
Is this model the right model for professional sound and RF mics?
Can anyone offer any tips on setting this unit up to be quickly useful in the field?
Why do some units have 2 SMA connectors and some have 1? My top of the line model has only 1.
