How to use the Rohde and Schwarz FSH4 spectrum analyzer, with a focus on satellite communications applications.
The Rohde and Schwarz model FSH4 is an advanced, highly flexible, portable spectrum analyzer, designed for wireless, microwave, satellite, and other RF and microwave applications. In this course we will apply the general concepts of spectrum analysis from GVF 522 to the specifics of using the FSH4 for satellite applications. We will learn about using the FSH4 controls and display, discuss optimizing settings for best display of certain signal types, work through some practical examples, and discuss some of the FSH4's advanced features. The course includes numerous videos as well as a live, interactive functional simulator of the FSH4.
