This is a market monitoring tool intended to Station engineers, Managers and Program Directors. The "Band Scanner" can create detailed play list reports for any station broadcasting artist and song title information with Radio Text. Managers and Program Directors can compare their own RDS text rotations to other stations in the market.
Engineers can monitor real-time field intensity data for any station, as well as review strip charts for analysis of the entire band. Precision MPX peak deviation meter is included in the product. It plugs into the USB port of any PC, and with the supplied Windows® software it sweeps the FM band and logs every signal it comes across. An easy- o-read spectrum display shows carrier level vs. frequency, and stations with an RDS or RBDS presence may be analyzed to show data in all Radio Data groups. Powered by a laptop's USB connection, the Band Scanner becomes an easy-to-use field tool.
The Band Scanner allows the broadcast engineers to decode and analyze all the RDS features with maximum ease and at a minimum of expense.
