    Yep, no guessing or wondering.

    "the RF Explorer is a very useful tool to have"
    For sure! I frequently work in Manhattan (RF hell), which is a challenging environment even for my Lectors. Prior to getting an RF explorer, I could not use G2/3s for much of anything in NYC, and Rx's internal scan is inadequate in a populated (RF) areas.

    Because of their 30mw limitation or?

    Rick will fill us in, but ime, the G3's scan isn't fine-grained enough to reveal clear (or clear-ish) frequencies. RF Explorer (which I've only used a couple of times when working as an A2 on complex gigs) helps reveal what's really going on.

    But a question for your RF Explorer owners: I was using the original 50-960 model; fine for UHF, but didn't cover 2.4GHz, etc.

    They have a bunch of expander cards to cover more spectrum. Here's a chart that's probably current:

    Which one do you all find most useful these days?

    Any experiences with or thoughts about the "Pro" version from RF Venue? At $500 US, I'm unlikely to buy it, but I'd like to know more about it.

    I use an Anritsu MS2711D. It's overkill and bulky compared to RF Explorer, but I already had it for other things, so it didn't make sense to by an RF explorer.

    BTW there are a number of sellers on Amazon selling them for about or under $160.
