Key facts

  • 9 kHz to 7.5 GHz (18 GHz with R&S®HF907DC)
  • 10 MHz real-time bandwidth
  • Extensive pre-selection
  • AoA based direction finding upgrade
  • Approx. 3.5 kg including battery

Practical, compact and an absolute bare necessity

The R&S®PR100 operates in a wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 7.5 GHz. In combination with the R&S®HF907DC SHF directional antenna with downconverter, the receiving frequency range of the R&S®PR100 can be extended up to 18 GHz. The R&S®PR100 features functions and controls optimized for spectrum monitoring and interference hunting in the field. Thanks to fast, seamless, real-time signal processing and extensive pre-selection, the R&S®PR100 detects all types of emissions, and helps to mitigate issues and accomplish tasks more efficiently.

Features & benefits

High spectral resolution

High receiver sensitivity, high signal resolution

The R&S®PR100 is a digital receiver primarily designed for fast detection of unknown signals. The R&S®PR100 can receive signals with high sensitivity and detect even weak signals without losing any processing speed. The receiver's sensitivity and signal resolution are superior to those of a conventional analog receiver.

Open Lightbox

Signal resolution in IF spectrum with digital and analog receiver concept.


Wide array of tool sets that can be easily upgraded

  • Spectral and waterfall display
  • Record and replay
  • Polychrome display
  • Integrated map display with triangulation
  • Horizontal scan
  • Tone based direction finding
  • Differential mode
  • Multiple scan modes
  • Analog demodulation
  • I/Q streaming of up to 500 kHz

Open Lightbox

A low-amplitude pulsed signal (Bluetooth®) superimposed by a pulsed signal with higher amplitude (WLAN) can only be seen by using the polychrome spectrum.


Rugged, portable design

  • Approx. 3.5 kg including battery
  • Typically 4 hr operation (Rx) on a single battery
  • Operable with gloves
  • Hands-free operation with HA-Z222 carrying holster
  • Tested in line with MIL-PRF-28800F environmental standard

Accurate manual direction finding

Triangulation of interferers or emission sources with directional antenna

The desired direction and position information is obtained by manually lining up the R&S®HE400 in the receive direction where the signal is the strongest. Several DF results can be combined for triangulation to approximate the position of the signal source on the map display. Optionally, the innovative handheld R&S®HE400CEL and R&S®HE400SCB dual mode antennas, which feature normal and delta mode, can be used for accurate manual direction finding.

Automatic direction finding

Fast automatic direction finding with compact DF antenna

The R&S®PR100 can easily be upgraded to an angle of arrival (AoA) based direction finder, which provides highly accurate AoA results from 20 MHz to 6 GHz. For easy transport and semi-stationary applications demanding high sensitivity, the R&S®ADD307 VHF/UHF DF antenna can be placed on a tripod. For mobile applications, the optional magnet mount adaptor can be fitted to the R&S®ADD107 and R&S®ADD207 VHF/UHF/SHF  compact DF antennas for easy installation on a commercial vehicle.
