Transcorder Tackles 50 MHz to 6 GHz

Measuring RF/microwave signal activity is not always easy because of the changing nature of those signals, especially when the activity may be irregular or inconsistent. Yet, it is often necessary to have some form of record of a particular signal, especially when characterizing or documenting the activity of different wireless systems.
