AKTAKOM AFC-2500 compact frequency meter that can easily fit in your palm is designed to measure frequency and signal period. The use of a specialized microprocessor allows introducing a number of "smart" functions. Using the external telescopic antenna you can measure the carrier frequency of various radio transmitting devices.

Features

  • High sensitivity for the VHF & UHF frequency measurement, excellent for CB hobbyist.
  • Handheld & pocket size instrument
  • Wide measuring range up to 2.6GHz
  • Good resolution, 0.1Hz min. display unit for 10MHz range.
  • Used the exclusive Microprocessor IC offered the intelligent function: Frequency, Period, Multi resolution, Data hold, Relative measurement, Data record (Max., Min., Average reading).
  • Auto power off & manual power off.
  • LCD display for low power consumption & clear read-out even in bright ambient light condition.
  • The instrument used the low PPM crystal time base to offer high accuracy measurement.
  • The optional telescoping antenna accessory can be used to pick up transmit frequencies from handheld, fixed or mobile radios such as: POLICES, FIRE FIGHTER'S, HAM, TAXI, AIRCRAFT MARINE, etc. at ranges of approaching 5 to 30 cm (depending on transmitter power, antenna obstructions, etc.).
