Aeroflex has released the new, lightweight 3500A 1GHz handheld radio test set offering improved audio analysis and operation with integrated audio test connections and a new microphone interface.

With a new cast magnesium alloy case, the 3500A weighs almost one pound less than its predecessor the 3500. Weight is an important factor for engineers and technicians when performing radio tests in the field and the 3500A is the first fully functional 1GHz radio test set to weigh less than eight pounds.

"The 3500A provides all the tried and proven features of the 3500, but we've made it lighter and easier to use," said Rob Barden, director of product marketing for Aeroflex. "With this new version, we were able to take off even more weight, while maintaining MIL SPEC ruggedness, making the 3500A more portable and useable for field service personnel. Also, we've added the audio connectors directly to the case, which will make audio analysis such as SINAD and distortion test quicker and easier to perform."

The 3500A includes testing capabilities for AM and FM radio systems including power measurements, RSSI, frequency error, FM deviation, AM modulation index, SINAD, distortion and AF level. Optionally, the 3500A supports a single-channel scope and a spectrum analyzer for extended testing. The 3500A is P25 ready for support of P25 testing as additional features are added, and is MIL-28800F Class II certified.
