RF Viewer — Wireless USB Dongle, RF Spectrum Analyzer
“Out-Of-This-World Features, At A Down-To-Earth Price…”
RF Viewer is a PC-based, RF spectrum analyzer. It uses a wireless, USB dongle that interfaces with your Windows PC running Touchstone-Pro or Clear Waves data analysis software. The wide band, RF spectrum analyzer spans a frequency range of 24 MHz up to 1766 MHz, which makes it ideal for use in a broad array of RF-related applications. Don’t let the price fool you — the performance of this device compares favorably to more expensive and bulky test equipment. The price of the RF Viewer package with Touchstone-Pro software is only $79 USD.
An excellent review of the product appeared in a recent edition of The Spectrum Monitor publication and appears here. Regular contributor to TSM, Mario Filippi N2HUN, takes this spectrum analyzer dongle to the VHF and UHF bands, looking for signals. He notes, “Unquestionably, this is one of the most useful pieces of radio gear I have encountered as a hobbyist in many years!”
Performance and low-cost are unmatched
RF Viewer employs a DVB-T dongle based on the Realtek RTL2832U chipset that supports a USB 2.0 interface. It can be used as a Software Defined Radio (SDR). The folks at Osmocom developed software to interact with the chipset and called it RTL-SDR. Nuts About Nets supports RF Viewer by developing PC-based software to enhance the functionality of the device.
RF Viewer is a remarkable diagnostic tool that both professionals and amateurs are bound to love. The combination of low-cost, mobile operation and sophisticated data acquisition and analysis are unique in the market place. Nuts About Nets’ commitment to quality and low-cost are unmatched — you’ll wonder how you ever got along without this device.
