How can I tell what firmware changes/improvements have made to my instrument?

Go to, type in your model numberin the “search box” press enter, click on the link that represents yourinstrument, then click on the “Library” tab, go to “Driver, Software Downloads”and click “Firmware update for XXXX (your model)” click where you see “ReleaseHistory” and the improvements/changes will be listed by the option.

I have an MS2713E, how can I tell what version of firmware is installed?

Press “Shift”, “System (#8 key)”, “Status” and look at“Package Version”.

I have looked in the MS2722C programming manual and I don’t see any information regarding the programming port to connect to. IP address we know, but which port is the problem.

It is not possible tocommunicate with the instrument via a TCP/IP socket or Ethernet port. Communication takes place over Ethernet using TCP/IP and the VXI-11 protocol.In order to communicate with the instrument, the PC must have a VXI-11 clientimplementation either as part of the controller program or using a third partysoftware package on the controlling PC.  This is typically supplied by aVISA software package. 

How long will Anritsu “fully” support the equipment after it has been discontinued?

We will support the equipment 7 years after its discontinuance date.   Pleasecall 800-Anritsu (267-4878) for that information.

Do you have any videos that will show you how to use Resolution Bandwidth (RBW) and Video Bandwidth (VBW) for your spectrum analyzers?

Yes. Our Anritsu TV link has the following helpfulvideo: “How to Select RBW and VBW withHandheld Spectrum Analyzers?”  This Link: You will also find other useful informative videos atthis link: Click on the “Video Library” and locate your videos.  

We have ordered the new MT8820T. On this model the GPS is standard with its antenna. Will the new GPS antenna 2000-1760 work on any other products?

Yes. As long as option 31 (GPS receiver), it will work on the following:S331E, S332E, S361E, S362E, S412E, MS2711E, MS2712E, MS2713E, MS2720T, MT8212E, MT8213E, MT8221B, MT8222B, MT8220T, MS2024B, MS2025B, MS2026C, MS2027C, MS2028C, MS2034B, MS2035B, MS2036C, MS2037C, MS2038C, MW82119A.

What is the preferred method for updating firmware for Anritsu Handheld RF tools such as the Site Master, Cell Master, VNA Master, LMR Master, Spectrum Master, or BTS Master?

Firmware updates are located under the library tab on the web page of each Anritsu handheld instrument. The installation process will require the use of an USB Memory Stick. Instructions and prompts will appear when the update is executed on your computer.   Older insturments, ones that do not have a firmware update listed in their library tab, can be updated using Anritsu's Master Software Tools. In this case, the preferred media is Ethernet if they have an Ethernet interface, or serial if they do not.  The MS2721B, MS2723B, MS2724B, MT8222A, and MS2026A are transition instruments. If these instruments have firmware created before August of 2009, Master Software Tools and an Ethernet connection will be requried to update their firmware. Once updated, future updates can be done by the USB Memory Stick method, using firmware downloaded from the instrument's web page.

I have a S412E and have saved my cable and antenna measurements. However, they only save in the .MNA format. What software tools can I use to manipulate them?

Yes. Line Sweep Tools supports .MNA files. You can add markers and limit lines. Please download Line Sweep Tools at this link:

Is Burst Detect Mode available on the MS2713E or the MT8221B?

Currently, Burst Detect Mode is only available on the Spectrum Master C series (MS27XXC) and VNA Master C Series with the Spectrum Analyzer (MS2038C & MS2036C).  Please view YouTube presentation for Burst Detect Mode 

How much does it cost for Repair and/or Calibration?

Look on the tool bar of  this website and hover your mouse over the “Services & Support” words on the toolbar and click on “Repair and Calibration”. Next, click on “Repair and Calibration Pricing”. Enter your model number. The result will show your model number as a hyper link (in blue). Click on it to see the pricing.

We have OSLN50-1 and OSLN50 standards for our handhelds. How do we know what is loaded into the VNA masters or other handhelds with vna capability?

  The 18GHz OSLN50, OSLNF50, OSLK50, and OSLKF50 cal kits are tuned to have a capacitance value of 0. That is why the VNA Master “VNA Mode” uses a C=0 setting for those cal kits. The BTS Master VNA app (and the older “A” series VNA Master) are setup to use the older OSL 4GHz and 6GHz cal kits, which had a different capacitance value (not necessarily 0). In reality, when you are only sweeping to 4GHz  or even to 6GHz, the capacitance values will not make a noticeable difference.

Can I preset markers 5 and 6 for marker between peak or valley on Line Sweep Tools?

This is not recommended if you plan to use the marker between two markers function. The reason being is that these values will vary from sweep to sweep. If you are marker 5 and 6 as part of your preset, you will not be able to re-adjust them for marker between two markers (peak or valley). However, if you are setting them for a specific frequency then you need to manually enter a frequency in the “FREQ (MHZ) column.    Marker 5 is used to set the marker between Marker 1 and 2, Peak or Valley. Marker 6 is used to set the marker between Marker 3 and 4, Peak or Valley.

for the SC7442 what is the drawing holes dimensions

the holes is open from one side to the other and All 4 of the flange mounting are tapped with the standard 4-40 thread.

Is there a replacement for the VP103F

There is no replacement for this part. 

What is the differences between FER and BER

Frame Erasure Rate, FER, is defined as the amount of swept speech frames (260 bits each)divided by the amount of transmitted speech frames. The speech frame is swept if even one ofits most important 50 bits is observed not to be correct. The three parity bits following the 50class Ia bits are used for error detection.· Bit Error Rate, BER, is the ratio of erroneously received bits to all received bits. It isimportant to notice that BER is evaluated before channel decoding, i.e. after equaliser. BER isused for defining the RXQUAL value

Can you tell me the difference between the 2000-767-R and the 2000-1618-R?

The only difference is the frequency range. The 2000-767 is DC to 4 GHz and the 2000-1618-R is DC to 6 GHz. There is also a female 7/16 Open/Short/Load part number 2000-768-R and 2000-1619-R. 2000-768-R frequency range is DC to 4GHz and 2000-1619-R is DC to 6GHz.

How do I copy files from my internal memory to my USB memory stick?

  The steps below detail copying a file from internal memory to an external flash drive.   NOTE: Select the files to copy in the top window and the location for the files to be copied to in the bottom window.   Insert a USB drive into either USB Type A port of the Site Master.   From the File main (shift/file (#7 key)) menu, press the “Copy (soft key)” submenu key. The Copy submenu and Copy dialog box are displayed (picture below).   Select the file(s) to copy. To select multiple files, highlight the first then press the “Select or De-Select” key to keep the file selected.  NOTE: (Press again to de-select if you choose not to copy the file.) The file will be outlined in blue. Repeat with all the files to copy. To display files in a folder, select the folder and press the Enter key.   Press the Scroll key and highlight the USB drive and press “select or de-select” soft key in the lower window using the touch screen or the Up/Down arrow keys or Thumb Wheel. NOTE: The Scroll submenu key toggles between Src (top window) and Dst (bottom window). Basically, the top window (src) is where you copy from and the bottom (dst) is where those files are going to.   Press the Copy key to copy the files to the flash drive.       NOTE:   If you want to check and see if those files have been copied, simply press the Scroll soft key (to get to your Src or source box), use your Up/Down arrows or Thumb Wheel to get to your USB Drive and press “Enter”.
