Service Monitor Help

Im looking at purchasing my first service monitor to test, align, service radios. The ability to tune diplexers would be nice but not essential.

Ive seen a few Aeroflex (IFR) ones around and lately a few Rhode ones within my price range.

Any sugestions?

Re: USB Problems

Yeah i reflashed the BIOS and put in a new HDD. I think it might be the IBM drivers playing up.

I ended up just getting a new laptop and taking the issue as sorted. Thanks for your help everyone

Re: XTL5000 Wont Read

Would my issue have anything to do with running win2000 and the head installing its self as a modem on com port 4?

Im going to try upgrading to XP to see if this solves the issue.
