The measurement range of the Power Monitor Option (5) for Site Masters is -50 to +20 dBm. Can we measure power greater than +20dBm?

To measure power greater than +20 dBm an external attenuator is required. The display range of the instrument is -80 dBm to +80 dBm so therefore you can measure up to +80 dBm with a 60 dB external attenuator.

What are the specifications for the SC5237 (6 dB offset termination) and SC5270 (20 dB offset termination)?

SC5237: DC to 4.0 GHz, 16.4 to 16.8 ohm 6dB +/- 0.25 dB SC5270: DC to 4.0 GHz, 40.66 to 41.1 ohm 20dB +/- 1.5 dB

I have difficulties downloading the signal standard file from the instrument to HHST when I use the USB-RS232 adapter, what can I do?

This has to do with the COM settings. For signal standards, it is assuming that you are using COM1 and if you are not, it will be challenging. To change this, please see below: Go to Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager -> Ports -> double click on USB to RS232 -> port settings -> advanced -> change COM number to 1 In HHST: Settings -> Communication -> COM1    

Does cable loss affect the system return loss?

The short answer is yes. The return loss of a cable & antenna system will be different if you are making a return loss measurement of a 15 dB antenna with two different cables. The return loss of the system is proportional to  2*CL (Cable Loss). System designers takes this into consideration when determining the specifications.

When using a Sitemaster, what is the maximum cable loss I should measure using the 1 port method?

The maximum cable loss one should expect to have an accurate measurement is 10 dB or less.  For measurements that exceed 10 dB, the uncertainty increases significantly.  The 2 port cable loss measurement technique should be used in these cases.

Can a .csv file that was converted from a .vna file of a VNA master be converted back to .vna using Master Software Tools?

No. If someone sends you a .csv file MST cannot be used to convert it back to a .vna file to be opened in MST.

Can I sweep an antenna with a TMAS on the line?

No. The majority of TMAS for cellular antennas will block the RF signal from the Site Master so the sweeping signal will only go as far as the TMAS and not reach the antenna.

Can I sweep antennas close to another RF source?

Yes but you need to be very careful that the RF from another Source is not going to exceed the 20 dBm max on the RF port.  Power in excess of 20 dBm can result in damage to the unit.

What is the calibration temperature window for the cable & antenna analyzer in the Site Master and Cell Master?

The calibration goes out when the temperature has deviated more than 15 degrees from the temperature at which the calibration was performed. This information is also available in the instrument. Simply press SYS and then Status after performing the calibration. The instrument will show the current temperature and then Cal Temp Range will show up as Current Temperature +/- 15C.

What is a one port cable loss test?

Traditionally, measuring the insertion loss of an installed coaxial cable is a one-port reflection measurement since it is virtually impossible to connect both ends of the cable to test equipment. The measurement is made by placing a short on one end of the cable and measuring the return loss at the other end. The desired value, cable loss, is return loss divided by two, since the signal travels through the cable in both directions.

How do I reduce the side lobes in a DTF on a Site Master?

Windowing will  reduce the lobes depending upon their severity.  It is similar to an averaging or smoothing technique.  There are four windowing options available: Rectangular windowing – Normal mode of operation. Nominal side lobe – Some smoothing Low Side Lobe – More smoothing Minimum side lobe – Maximum smoothing

Are Anritsu PC applications for downloading files from the Site Master supported on 64 bit Windows OS's?

Currently Anritsu does not but is working diligently to provide a solution.

What methodolgy is used to derive GPS data for the Master products?

The GPS coordinates delivered by the instruments are based on the WGS-84 methodology of determining position.

What is the meaning of the LED indicators on the optional battery charger?

Each battery holder in the optional charger has an LED charging status indicator. The LED color changes as the battery is charged: Red indicates the battery is charging Green indicates the battery is fully charged Yellow indicates the battery is in a waiting state.  A yellow light may occur because the battery became too warm during the charge cycle.  In this case, the charger will allow the battery to cool off before continuing the charge. A yellow light may also indicate that the charger is alternating charge to each of the two batteries.

What is the specification for cable LDF12-50J?

Propagation Vel 88%  (.88) Atten/100ft @ 1920 MHz  3.13 dB  Atten/100ft @ 2000 MHz  3.20 dB   Atten/100ft @ 894 MHz  2.07 dB  Atten/100ft @ 960 MHz  2.15 dB Atten/100ft @ 1700 MHz  2.93 dB d This is not Anritsu made or sold cable.

What happens if the battery of my site master is completely discharged?

If a battery is allowed to totally discharge, the smart-memory capability of the battery may be lost, resulting in incorrect battery capacity readings or loss of communication with the battery.

What causes my Site Master to beep?

If a flashing LOW BATT indicator is accompanied by an audio beep at the end of each trace, the battery has approximately one minute of useable time remaining.

Is there any recommendation for Battery Life on a Site Master?

The NiMH battery will last longer and perform better if allowed to completely discharge before recharging. For maximum battery life, it is recommended that the NiMH battery be completely discharged and recharged once every three months.

What is the difference between an OSL calibration and FlexCal?

With the OSL calibration, you have to calibrate each time you change the frequency range. With the FlexCal, you can change the frequency range and you don't have to perform another calibration. FlexCal is great for troubleshooting purposes. The accuracy can be affected if your span is really narrow so for optimum accuracy, it is recommended to use the OSL calibration.

Does the internal power meter (option 29) of S332D require an external detector to measure power?

No external detector is required for this option. The spectrum analyzer board and detection circuit is used to provide the user with frequency selective power measurements.
