  • Use the included selectable low noise preamplifier on any frequency from 100Khz to 4GHz range

Push-ON SMA adapter available

We are happy to announce the availability of new Push-ON adapter, this is an affordable version of very expensive but convenient accessory that makes easier to plug/unplug devices or cables under test to a SMA port.

This quality adapter is good for up to 6GHz work.

It is the same adapter we include in the Near Field Antenna Kit, and by popular demand we make it available to everyone as separated adapter you can now use for your own purposes. We get them in quantities which allow us to offer it for $8.5 - as a comparison equivalent adapters at Mouser or Digikey are in the range of >$40.

We are happy to announce RF Explorer will be available for demo in Hamvention 2017.

Hamvention is one of the largest and premiere Amateur Radio shows and flea market. The show this year will be held May 19 to 21 in Xenia, Ohio; where thousands of hams from across North America (and the world) converge to one location to see hundreds of commercial and flea market vendors. This is the first year on new location in Xenia after moving out from Dayton HARA Arena.

SeeedStudio team will be available to show the product family, including pre-production prototypes of upcoming models and tools, and of course you can ask questions, take demos and see the product first hand in booth #6711-6712.

We can also help you understand how a Spectrum Analyzer and Tracking Generator can make your life easier tuning antennas, checking filters, detecting jam and noise sources, to name a few.

We hope to see you there!
