Frequencies from 9 kHz up to 8.6 GHz can be monitored and logged. The receivers offers an unparalleled flexibility given their software-defined architecture, excellent dynamic range, and high sensitivity. Many useful features complement the receivers, making them capable of filling not only the role of a search and monitoring receiver but also that of a measuring receiver, such as the calibrated S-meter showing the received signal levels in dBm, µV or S-units, down to the -140 dBm noise floor, several spectrum analyzers, and many other features.
The MS-8118/G3 Multichannel Radio Monitoring System can be custom-fitted with a combination of receivers for different frequency ranges and capabilities, to optimize the system for a specific application and to maintain a minimum cost.
The MS-8118/G3 Multichannel Radio Monitoring System makes it possible for the user to control each individual receiver separately and observe its operational status, as well as set the system parameters for multichannel monitoring and surveillance operations.
Each receiver can operate totally indepedently, as a high-performance scanner with additional advanced facilities for automated task scheduling, spectrum analysis, signal strength logging, channel occupancy analysis, programmable audio recording, and many other features. Alternatively, the receivers can work in "master/slave" roles, where a "master" search receiver hands off its found frequency to a "slave" for monitoring, while continuing search.
The informative graphical user interface of the MS-8118/G3 system makes it possible for the user to observe the status of the individual receiver channels at a glance, and set-up monitoring tasks for a wide range of applications ranging from conventional logging and time-schedule recording, to sophisticated, fully automated, remotely-controlled radio surveillance operations.
