Remote command „CALC:UNIT:POW DBUV” is not accepted


We use the receiver mode. After sending the command “CALC:UNIT:POW DBUV” we get the error “-200,"Execution error; Function not available” back. That command is mentioned in the manual and the “unit” dBuV” should be available. What is wrong?


You are right - in receiver mode it must be possible to use dBuV. In fact, that is the default setting after a preset.

Please check if there is any other transducer activated for another unit i.e. dBuV/m. After deactivation of that transducer the command is accepted.
