Let’s see, pondered the technician, scratching his chin, shall I carry this… and this… and this… and this… to the satellite installation job and subsequent check of the video conferencing system? Or shall I just take the MSK-125? Hmmm…

MSK-125 TV Signal Analyzer

The appeal of the Kathrein/Schomandl MSK 125 signal meter begins with its versatility. It is a multi-standard spectrum analyzer, a MER/BER analyzer, a satellite meter, and a terrestrial, cable and audio measurement device. With all of that, it is portable and durable. For satellite installation, its SatFinder uses acoustic signaling to quickly align a dish with a beamed signal.

For cable work, the MSK-125 analyzes and sorts DVB-C, DVB-S/S2 and T/H signals. Digital metering is not a problem either: It just as easily implements MPEG-4 decoding and measures HDTV and FM-SAT radio transmissions. LBA Technology is partnering with German RF equipment manufacturer Kathrein Group to bring this useful state-of-the-art meter to the western hemisphere.
