Portable antenna for locating transmitters and interference sources

The R&S®HE400MW microwave handheld directional antenna is used to detect and to locate transmitters and interference sources in the frequency range from 20 MHz to 20 GHz. 
The antenna is optimized for use with the R&S®FSH and R&S®Spectrum Rider FPH handheld spectrum analyzer as well as R&S®Cable Rider ZPH cable and antenna analyzer. 
The antenna consists of an antenna handle, cable sets and antenna modules. Six different antenna modules are available for receiving vertically or horizontally polarized signals. A built-in low-noise amplifier (LNA) is available for increased system sensitivity. An integrated electronic compass delivers exact azimuth and elevation data.

Features & benefits

Modular design

For selecting the most suitable antenna

The modular design of the R&S®HE400 handheld directional antenna family helps to find the best antenna handle and antenna module for customer applications.

Very wide frequency range in a compact size

Coverage of frequency range 20 MHz to 20 GHz

The very wide frequency range can be used in several customer applications, such as interference hunting, spectrum monitoring und spectrum surveillance.

Distinct directional radiation pattern

For unambiguous measurement results

The R&S®HE400MW antenna modules feature distinct directional patterns, enabling a clear direction to be determined by pointing the antenna towards a signal source. When in reflective surroundings, multiple measurements from different locations may be needed.

Wide dynamic range 

Thanks to switchable active and passive modes (LNA on/off)

A switchable built-in low-noise amplifier (LNA) provides optimum sensitivity in active mode and wide dynamic range in passive mode, allowing the antenna to be used in different applications.

Fast and precise signal source localization

For fast and precise results

Unique and very sophisticated bearing detection mode for highly accurate bearing results for quick signal source localization (with the R&S®HE400CEL, R&S®HE400SCB).

Antenna module Frequency range Delta mode
R&S® HE400VHF 20 MHz to 200 MHz No
R&S® HE400UWB 30 MHz to 6 GHz No
