mmm...sexy. Looks like it's not built around Palm OS and the price is lower than the previous model. I'd like to get one.

is it still built around Palm OS?

It does not use a Palm.  It is a single unit.  Whether or not they used the OS, I do not know but no functions like a Palm exist on the platform.

Did you find one in the USA?  Newark and Saelig don't list the new models.

Might this unit be of interest for those who don't need an upmarket handheld analyser?

Did you find one in the USA?  Newark and Saelig don't list the new models.

I got it 2 days ago:

Total cost was $2109.00 including option U01 upgrade, A second AC adaptor, and a SMA(F) to SMA(M) adapter.

I am going to make an unfair comparison to my R&S FSH, a real upscale SA.

First impressions:
   Carrying case too big
   RF sensitivity really low even with +20 gain and no pad.
   Software only for PC
   Driver install not seamless nor automatic - requires using device manager.
   Menus slightly too deep and not in a logical arrangement.

It has logging capabilities which the R&S does not.
The R&S is remote controllable from a PC which the PSA is not.
Both of the can display and save waveforms internally and on a PC.
The PSA has a view program which shows the live view of the screen - R&S just takes still snapshots.
The PSA weighs 1 lb 5 oz and the R&S, 5 lb 14 oz (HUGE difference in my backpack)
The R&S has better controls, a keyboard and jog wheel.
The PSA has a much brighter screen (pictures are with screen at 50%).
The R&S has a preamp and a Tracking Generator, necessary for fileter tuning.  The PSA has neither.
The R&S runs a more powerful processor and has a much smoother display ar high scan speeds.
The PSA must be run at low scan speeds to have good resolution.

Here is the sales company address, talk to Missy.
Saelig Company, Inc. 71 Perinton Parkway, Fairport, NY 14450
Tel: (585) 385-1750__Fax: (585) 385-1768__E-mail: info@saelig.com



I have had a couple of days to learn the PSA2702 TTi Spectrum analyzer. 
 
For 1/6 the cost of the R&S it performs very well.

Here are some comparisons with the Rhode & Schwartz FSH3.

PSA2703


R&S FSH3


Looking at channel 14, 10mHz span and settins identical on each SA


This is ch18 DTV, both SA have Resolution BW at 300kHz - not much detail.


Here it is again:
R&S RBW is now 10hHz and sweep time is 200ms
PSA RBW is 15kHz and sweeptime is about 1.5 seconds
This shows the relative processing power.


Here are adjacent DTV - center is ch30 and ch 31 is on the right.
The R&S shows the distinction a little clearer.


Here is a stronger DTV ch 36


This is a peak hold on a FM station with a span of 1mHz


Here is the GIANT carring case.  I probably will not use it.
I probablywill get a fitted cordura case made instead.
