Ready to start!

Field strength meter model TV EXPLORER

We are now ready to start with the tests. RP-080 must be disconnected from the meter and connected to the system headend instead of the antennas. We will leave it there and go with the TV Explorer to the desired test outlet somewhere else in the building.

Once the meter is connected to the TV outlet and the LNB voltage is powering the RP-080 through the IRS/SMATV system, we can read the attenuation at the two reference frequencies at once.
