Testing FM radios in the field


The R&S CTH family of portable radio test sets from Rohde & Schwarz is designed for testing of analog FM radios in the field. Both test sets perform frequency and power measurements on transmitters and receivers.

The R&S CTH200A also finds cable faults between the radio and the antenna and performs over the-air measurements. Users can check the functionality of radios just before they are put into operation.  
The  battery-operated test sets measures 4.05 x 7.95 x 1.45 inch (103 x 202 x 37mm)and weigh about 1.2 lb (540 g). The aluminum enclosure is splashproof in line with IP54. They can withstand harsh environmental conditions and were designed for operation in the field.
The R&S M3xR family of software defined radios from Rohde & Schwarz can also be tested with these test sets. The result is a practical solution for both public safety authorities and organizations and the defense sector.
