Thea's good to hear, especially from you.

I tend to use Wireless Workbench since most of the devices we bring in are Shure brand, so the ability to import [current] scan data with little/no tweaking is a plus for me.

IAS and a quality RF analyzer may be in store some day, but I can at least keep learning/experimenting until then.



YES, I think it is very usable.  There are some cheeper ways to do it but not with the RF coordination features of RF Explorer.

I have the Kaltman Win radio scanner I bought a few years back and have compared it to the RF Explorer and if I were to do it over again, would just buy the Explorer.
It really is good value for basic RF scanning and is much better than using just the scanners in the RF receivers.

Given the price difference between the basic WSUB1G model (which covers standard UHF TV frequencies) and something like the 6G Combo, is the ability to scan VFH and Wi-Fi frequencies generally worth it?

Thanks!

More equipment will be moving to VHF like the RAD UV-1G comm system.  Wifi you can scan better with your laptop.

I just got an RF Explorer, the WSUB1G+ model.  It's pretty cool, and even way out here in the suburbs I'm able to see some TV stations - very sensitive, more than I've been getting from our TTi's.  Agreed that the user experience is a little clunky compared to the TTi, but still very usable.

For the price, and the size, definitely cool to have. I've been wanting one that'll be able to ride with my regular tools.

Hi Scott, long time RF Explorer user here. Yes, It's sensitive... but pay attention to desense in presence of strong signal (also out of your scan range). If you want to verify, just open communication with a walkyes 50mW at 1 meter from half dipole antenna connected to RF Explorer and you'll see what happen. (so... stay away from IEM transmitting antenna also...)
