Although this field strength meter has different no-error satellite identification functions, technicians working with these systems are often requested by the satellite operators to search for the "Beacon" signal as a mean of satellite identification.

This requires high resolution, high sensitivity and fast sweep times which are all readily available in the field strength meter model HD RANGER UltraLite product.
