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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Is there a way to return the Site Master, MT8212B, S412D or MS2711x to factory defaults?

Yes. Turn the unit off - Hold down the Escape/Clear key and turn the unit on - as soon as the screen starts to display, release the Escape/Clear key. The display should show FACTORY DEFAULTS SETTINGS. This will not erase any stored setups or plots.

How do I add options to my S331D Site Master?

Some options for the S331D Site Master require additional hardware or calibration factors to be loaded into the unit so the work needs to be done in either an Anritsu service center or at the Morgan Hill, CA facility.  For other options, these can be added via a license file and instructions on how to complete this process are shown below:    Generating an Instrument Config File and Installing A New License File To automatically queue the Anritsu website for updates, you must configure the Master Software Tools (MST) Internet Settings. 1. Run the MST program. 2. Connect to the instrument. 3. Generate a Config File a. Pull down the Sync menu and highlight Device Status and Options to open the submenu.   Get Options Highlighted (config file)   b. Click Get Options (Config File). The Save Config File window opens.     c. Go to the folder where the license file was previously stored. d. Highlight the file and press the Open button. The filename format is model-spaceserialnumber.license. e. MST will install the new license into the instrument. After the installation is complete, a dialog appears.   “Instrument options successfully upgraded. Cycle power on the instrument to begin using the new features”   f. Follow the instruction. g. Verify the new option(s) are listed on the boot up screen.

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.

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.
