FM Band Spectrum & Mod Analyzer, RDS/RBDS Decoder-Reader (DEVA Broadcast Band Scanner Pro)

This is a tool to evaluate FM DEVA Broadcast Band Scanner Pro congestion and to log station identification parameters. The “Band Scanner Pro” can measure RF level, MPX deviation, Left & Right Audio levels, RDS and Pilot injection levels. Power the system by the USB port of any Windows PC. Furthermore, supplied free of charge Windows software sweeps the receiver across the FM band. Also, it logs every carrier and generates a spectrum display of carrier level vs. frequency. It then analyzes each carrier and creates a station list.

Stations with an RDS presence are further refined to show all the radio data groups that were transmitted. Its interface resembles a portable radio’s. You may tune it manually through the receiver screen. In addition, you may also tune it by double-clicking a point on the spectrum plot or on an entry on the station list. You can save spectrum plots as jpg or bmp files. Obviously, it displays the RDS data error level graphs in a separate window on the receiver screen. Monitor the program with headphones plugged into a standard 1/8″ jack.
