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

spectrum analyzer...that covers all the bands
You'll appreciate it when you're hanging off the me =)

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 
rental SA is NOT lightweight at all.  :-)
