    Hi all,

    I was looking at the spectrum analyser option of the E8385A test station, and the documentation seems to suggest that the bw for this is between 800MHz-1GHz and 1700Mhz to 2GHz.

    http://www.libertytest.com/assetmanager/uploaded/pdf-2010512-133233-at_e8285a.pdf page 4

    However, I found a video of someone using it at 145MHz:


    I presume I am reading the specifications incorrectly. If so, what is the actual bandwidth of the instrument, if one were to use it as a spectrum analyser?

    Many thanks for your time,

    Sparky

    Ah I see that it is likely an issue of firmware, the newer versions being locked to 800MHz +.
