Aeroflex 3500 radio test

Aeroflex has updated the software 3.5.1 for the 3500 series handheld radio test set, which includes new features such as tracking generator option, which allows users to test and align duplexers quickly in the field. The software also provides support for the P25 testing option.

Designed to test key radio parameters, the 3500 Series is the industry leader in handheld portable testing, with a weight of less than 8lbs. With extensive test capabilities for testing AM, FM and now P25 radios, the 3500 series provides an integrated power meter, RF frequency counter, AM and FM modulation tests, extensive audio tests including SINAD and distortion analysis and an optional 1GHz spectrum analyzer and audio oscilloscope. Introduced last year, the 3500A model provides new audio connectors and a new microphone accessory to provide easier and faster test access.

"Aeroflex announced last year that the 3500 series was P25-ready. With this new software release, Aeroflex has moved quickly to provide this critical test function for the land mobile radio market for testing P25 transmitter power, frequency error, receiver bit error rate and P25 C4FM modulation accuracy," said Rob Barden, director of product marketing for Aeroflex. "The new software also supports new SWR and distance-to-fault analysis functions that speed testing of antenna and cable systems."

The 3500A handheld digital radio set has a delivery time of eight to 10 weeks upon receipt of order. The 3500 series is field-upgradeable to include these latest software features. The software is available for download at the Aeroflex web site at:
