Improving upon the very popular 8800 platform, the 8800S Digital Radio Test Set supports higher direct power measurements up to 125 Watts. With its hybrid portable design, the industry’s largest color touch-screen display, a measurement range from -140 dBm to 500 Watts, and unmatched analog and digital test features, the 8800 offers RF professionals a whole new experience in radio test.

Weighing only 17 lbs (7.71 kg), with a 2.5+ hour internal battery, and 30 G shock rating, now test professionals will no longer compromise portability for critical test features; and vice versa.
