The ISM Band RF Explorer

Ariel Rocholl has been working with Seed Studio on an affordable handheld spectrum analyzer called the RF-Explorer.

It’s a sort of Swiss Army Knife for monitoring, testing and diagnosing ISM band digital communications. It currently supports the 433Mhz, 868Mhz or 915Mhz bands and other bands in the works. The RF-Explorer is currently in beta with Seeed Studio.

I can see this coming in handy with my water meter reading project.

  1. So it can’t read my 27Mhz r/c car frequency?

  2. You never know. I would check the projects main page and tell them what other add-ons or features your looking for. It never hurts to ask questions or give ideas. :)
