Hi all,
RF coordination is becoming "real job" in Italy. So, after MANY years of RF Explorer use I'm searching a new, fast, precise analyser system. Kaltman RF Vue, that I used many times, is too slow and "problematic". I really need something fast to measure not just DVB-T but also intermittent signal (Walkyes, Led ecc.). And yes, money is a great concern (RF coordination is BECOMING etc.)
Extensive search on the web point me to Signal Hound SA44B.
Any comment will be appreciate, TIA  :)

I have been having a lot of success with my Siglent SSA 3021X. It goes down to 1 kHz RBW. I like to go through my frequency list during shows looking at a 1 Meg window. With a 10kHz RBW my sweep time is 15 milliseconds. It also had 750 horizontal pixels vs the TTI's 250. I paid $1400 US.

It comes with an included tracking generator. The interface is great. There are jump arrows and a knob for tuning and moving a marker.


It is only ten pounds so it is portable, but there is no battery so it is not a handheld unit.

I have imported scans into the demo of IAS (I work events as an RF guy where I am already provided coordination).  I have not tried it in WWB.

Perhaps it would work well for you in combination with an RF Explorer for tracking down rogue users.

Anyone compared the SSA3000 to the BB60C?

Odd that the SSA doesn't have a battery, as it looks like it was designed to be portable...

It does look like that. I was hoping to be able to adapt it to run on Anton Bauer batteries, but it looks like it would be very difficult and expensive. I nearly got it anyway, but a friend sold me his well kept TTi for a third of what the Siglent would have been.

It would have been nice to have the tracking generator and return loss bridge, but, oh well...
