About $500 plus shipping.  I use mine all the time !!!  Seriously,
just got done checking some cards from an AP that got hit by lightning
a few days ago (yes, in January !).  It is so nice to know for sure
they are OK and I can reuse with piece-of-mind.  The PoE suppressor
did its job this time (last time I lost everything).

Wow.  For the rental price on some of those you can buy one from BVS
Systems.  I rented one (I can't remember the name but it was an
expensive unit) for $250 per week from Wave Rider.  If I remember
right (it has been a while), it at least covered 900 and 2.4.  You
should probably have some antennas of your own ready to go for testing
when you get the unit.  It is a big and expensive unit, so don't plan
on carrying it up a tower !

You could, also, talk to Marlon.  He has one for rent, or used to. 
Also, if you are looking to buy, he is able to sell you one through 
Electrocom.  The Avcom units are pretty useful, and easy to use. 
The one that I have is built for 2.4GHz only, but they have adapters 
to add 600-1000MHz and 5-6 GHz.  These are VERY lightweight units. 
I have carried mine up a tower with very little effort.  Marlon's

RE: [WISPA] Re: [WISP] Renting Spectrum Analyzers

2006-01-05 Thread Jeff Mabry
I prefer the Anritsu MS2721A Spectrum Master.  Easy to operate, it is not
bulky and does not weight very much for those tower climbs, color graphics,
and quit a bit of storage for saved measurements.  

When in a pinch we rent from TRS out of Texas, phone 800-621-6354.  They
offer very good weekly, bimonthly, or monthly options on SpecA's, Cable
Sweepers, Path Align-R's, etc. 

I hope 2006 will be prosperous to each of you.

Best regards,  

SlingShot Wireless Communications

Hi Brian,

XL Microwave makes a spectrum analyzer that is extremely easy and simple to
use
It doesn't have all the add-ons that an anritsu or rhode and shwarz unit
will provide, but for the normal user -- those extra buttons / knobs
confuse more than anything else

I believe that they have a rental program, but I've cc:ed Tom Duckworth from
XL Microwave (he's an engineer there) -- and he may be able to better answer
your question

Their website is: http://www.xlmicrowave.com/

Regarding Avcom

The Avcom units require extra modules to go beyond 2.4
On a tower, trying to plug-in something else is kind of a hassle

From an ease of use perspective, I would recommend that you find a 1 piece
spectrum analyzer...that covers all the bands
You'll appreciate it when you're hanging off the tower...trust me =)
