Does the Anritsu Site Master support P25 demod?

Presently the Site Master does not support P25 demod.

I am using a VISTA 64 bit operating system and Delorme USB to serial adapter and I cannot get HHST to work.

HHST is compatible with VISTA 32 bit operating systems but not with VISTA 64 bit OS.  Also per Delorme their USB to serial adapter is not compatible with VISTA 32 or 64.

There is a lot of concern about loss and reflections in the cable run to the antenna. Why don't the radio MFGs just make transmitters with more power?

The FCC regulates how much output power of any given transmitter. Since this is a fixed quantity, the system designers are forced to squeeze out every bit of performance out of the entire system.

Can you use a one load if you calibrate with a different load?

You may calibrate the Site Master with one precision load and make measurements with another precision load. Type "N" loads are specified to be better than 42 dB return loss, and 7/16 Din loads are specified to 45 dB. You can never make a measurement better than the quality of the calibration components being used. This is true for ALL test equipment.

Can I use the InstaCal I got with my new S331C on my S331B? How about my S114C?

Your InstaCal module can be used on any S11xC, S33xC, or later models. InstaCal will not work on the older "B" models or on the S251C.

Why don't I use an Open/Short/Load procedure for waveguide calibrations?

The waveguide calibration uses a 1/8 wavelength offset short, a 3/8 wavelength offset short and a precision waveguide load for calibration. For coax calibration the open and short both causes high reflections back to the Site Master but an open on a waveguide causes minimal reflections to occur although they are about twice as much as the load. The 1/8 and 3/8 offset shorts are used to set the 0 (zero) reference of the Site Master just like the Open/Short for coaxial calibrations.

On the Site Master what are the differences between Option 5, Power Monitor and Option 29, Power Meter?

Option 5 requires a external detector. The measurement range is -30 to +16dbm. Option 29 does not require a external detector and has a measurement range of -80 to +20dbm.

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

What is the difference in accuracy when comparing the Instacal module with the precision calibration tee?

The InstaCal has a specified directivity of 38 dB for frequencies below 3.5 GHz while the regular calibration tee provides >42 dB of directivity. The directivity is many times the largest contributor to measurement uncertainty and this difference between the two calibration techniques will affect the uncertainty. The difference in performance will be more prevalent the closer to the directivity you are. For instance, if you are making a return loss measurement of an antenna and the overall system return loss is 10 dB, the difference in performance will be less than 0.1 dB. If the overall return loss is 20 dB, then the OSLN50-1 tee will be at least 0.35 dB better than the ICN50 Instacal. In general, it is recommended to use the InstaCal when you are looking for a fast way to make the cal. If superior accuracy is of important, then the precision calibration tee is the best way to go.

My traces are saved in .MDB format on my PC. How do I convert these traces to .DAT files?

In HHST go to File>Database>Select the data base you want to open. This will open a window called Site Master Database showing pointing to your database. Display records 1 at a time or display all depending on the version of HHST you are using. Save each record as a .DAT trace file one at a time.

Does option 16, 6GHz Frequency Extension for the S332D increase the spectrum analyzer frequency capabilityto 6GHz?

No, the 6GHz Frequency Extension only applies for the Cable and Antenna measurements that the S332D can make.

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.

I bought a new battery for my Site Master but when I plug it in it says Battery Cal Lost.

The battery designed to work with the Site Masters has circuitry that communicates with the mother board.  If you bought an off the shelf battery it will not have this circuitry and will display this message.  If it is a battery was bought from Anritsu then you may need to contact an Anritsu service center.

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.
