Anritsu is the leader of high frequency microwave connector technology and is driven by an ongoing commitment to exceed customer needs. Anritsu created and trademarked the K Connector with coverage to 40 GHz, along with a complete family of 40 GHz test equipment. It was an immediate success and today is used on many commercial components, test fixtures, and
defense systems. P/N: 11410-00235

Interference from both illegal and unintentional signals is a significant problem for mobile service providers, security services and government regulators. Interference can often degrade network
performance, causing critical communications to be interrupted. Locating these sources of interference has traditionally been labor intensive and time consuming. Traditional methods include manually making numerous measurements from multiple locations using a directional antenna. Triangulation is then used to approximate the signal location.
This process is then iterated a number of times until the interferer is precisely located.
The first indicators of interference are noisy links, for analog systems. Legacy AM and FM systems indicate
interference problems by various noises. Hiss, hum, or even voices from other transmissions can be heard.
For digital transmissions, such as HDTV, cellular, or P25, interference shows up as limited range, dropped
calls, or low data rate. That familiar waterfall sound on your cellular phone indicates poor reception and a
high bit error rate, which might be caused by interference. P/N: 11410-00972
This paper covers how to use the MA2700A Handheld InterferenceHunter to locate interference through direction finding. The process of creating maps for the spectrum analyzer, selecting antennas and pre-filters, where to start looking for the interference, spectrum analyzer setup, taking bearings, and interpreting the results is explained. In addition, “last block” strategies for finding signals once we know we are close to the source is discussed. P/N: 11410-00973
With the rapid expansion of wireless communications, the need for robust networks relatively free of interference continues to grow. Capacity is degraded by the presence of illegal or unlicensed signals that interfere with legitimate transmissions. These signals can be periodic or be present at different frequencies over time, making the discovery and removal of these sources of interference a significant challenge. P/N: 11410-00938

Spectrum monitoring has long been an established tool for spectrum management. The move to digital modulations and the drive to an “always connected” society have made the need for spectrum monitoring even more important. Monitoring can help resolve issues in the areas of interference, capacity, and reliability, and help regulate unlicensed use of the spectrum.
A well thought out spectrum monitoring tool, such as an Anritsu spectrum analyzer, is essential for this task. With a variety of sweep modes, Burst Detect, essential warning messages, task automation, and full remote control over Ethernet, Anritsu spectrum analyzers are well suited to this task.
Anritsu is prepared to assist you with your spectrum monitoring tasks and needs.
This user guide provides an overview of the Anritsu Interference
Hunter MA2700A Handheld Direction Finding System.
This online help system provides an overview of the Interference Hunter MA2700A Handheld Direction Finding System. The MA2700A allows easy-to-use handheld direction finding and includes an internal preamplifier, a GPS receiver, and an electronic compass.
Connected to an Anritsu instrument, and with a directional antenna attached, the MA2700A captures location and interfering signal information when the trigger is pressed. The captured location and bearing data can be displayed on the instrument (Option 25 and SPA module V6.00 or higher required). [P/N: 10450-00041]
